Junior club builds bream spawning beds

Six members of the Lake Oconee Junior Bass Club spent 14 hours building and installing two bream spawning beds in a private pond where some of the club's tournaments are held.

The beds were filled with fine gravel to give the bream an area to spawn.

"Hopefully, this will increase the bream production and provide more forage for the bass," said Tony Beck, conservation director for the Georgia B.A.S.S. Federation Nation.
