Web-posted 01/22/10

Web-posted 01/15/10

Web-posted 01/01/10

Raysville area is the place to be for now
Web-posted 12/11/09
Fishing for striped bass and hybrids has been so-o-o-o easy this week in the Raysville area of Thurmond Lake. All you need to do is find the huge flocks of sea gulls and terns diving into the water or hovering over the surface.
