That time of year

For hunters and fishermen in Mississippi, the year brings with it certain times that are special.  March 15 is the opening day of turkey season.  The crappie spawn in February and March.  Doves test our shooting skills the first weekend in September.  The whitetail rut around Christmas.  All of those have a special place. 

This weekend is also a special time for Mississippi anglers.  The full moon in May means one thing.  The bream spawn.  Big ol bluegill will be guarding the beds and eating anything in sight.  Now some will argue that the moon has nothing to do with the spawn.  To those people I simply say “Fine, stay home.”  With any luck, the coolers will be full and the bobbers will be  sinking this weekend.  Wish me luck.
