    I hunt some in Giles, but mostly in Montgomery co. around Bburg. I know a few folks who have already been finding 'em around here. I'm going out this afternoon and I'll report back what I find.

    I found some nice blacks up Wolf Creek.

    Stoney Creek is a real hot spot.

    I looked today up Wolf Creek in spots I had never hunted before trying to stumble upon a new patch. No luck. White ones are not up yet and the blacks are very scattered.

    Found 9 yesterday in Bburg... All were pretty small and a few were dried up. I left them overnight and will check back today. I ran out of daylight and didn't get to look everywhere I wanted. Going back out this afternoon.

    Merkel Pizza! I found some nice white ones up Stoney Creek today.

    I hear that around Pandapas Ponds near BBurg you can find nice ones. I have never been there.

    Then I went up Wolf Creek this evening and found these monsters. 22 Merkels weighed 1 pound 3 ounces. They were very scattered and it took a lot of walking but I think it is going to be good year.

    I hit the honey hole today. All of these in a quarter acre spot. They were all small but growing in nice easy to follow lines.
