    I know of maybe 2 others coming Saturday that did not RSVP. It only matters that they come get some of these fish. They stocked the lake a month ago so there's PLENTY OF FISH.

    The weather is going to be GREAT! The Farmer's Almanac and the 7 day forecast said no rain on Saturday. Plus, it's near a full moon cycle which is ideal for fishing. If it does rain, who cares. We are going fishing!!!

    For those who have joined the group and have been waiting, here it is, the real deal fishing trip that's right in our back yard. Sweetwater Creek Park is located near Douglasville,down I-20 West past Six Flags. Bring a friend, kids, family or just yourself. There is a bait shop on site and store, bathrooms, picnic tables and really nice facilities plus 2 lakes. Check out our flyer under files and feel free to print it out to share.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
