Local faves have a following

We've pulled up on the local favorites, Young Harris College's Matthew Peeler and Brad Rutherford. They've got five fish for 10 or so pounds. The duo is so well known that there's a group of locals following them, watching. They're working main-lake points and other offshore structure. Two of their fish are good, but the other three are reported to be babies. My boat driver says that if the team makes it to the All-Star week Classic Bracket competition, Peeler may have to sit it out because he's got a "real job" and getting a week off for this event was a chore.
