Always heard that Statesboro was the breeding grounds for nats....

Hopeful and Vada. They worse there than anywhere below the gnat line. Gnats don`t bother me, but around those two particular area they would tote your dinner bucket off they were so thick. They will pester you when one gets in your ear and starts grinding his teeth.

Sand gnats are another story. They can go through a window screen and they will eat you alive. They ain`t nothing but a set of jaws full of teeth with wings.

Even deep woods off just ticks them off.Organic vinegar,hot salsa and a good wind works best for keeping them off me.I think they migrated south to Whigham a few years ago.

I was familiar with sand gnats when we fished both coasts, but we never had them in either Wheeler County or over here in Southwest Georgia until 1979. That`s when I saw, well, felt the first ones. September and I was still bowhunting back then. Now it seems like we get them near about every early Fall.

Dad had a 24' Cuddy Cabin twin outboard back in the day. We went out onto lake Ponchartrain speckled trout fishin one night years ago when my brothers and I were teens. We decided we were just going to sleep on the boat, it was so calm that night.

It had screens on all the windows and the little door to step down into the cabin, figured it would be fine. The roar outside from thos GIANT striped skeeters was so loud on those screens all night tryin to get in and devour us was deafening. A few did get in too. There were literally thousands of them all over that boat.

I reckon we had a south wind that night blowin them offshore to us.

Seems we called them something else when I lived in FL,,,,can't remember,,,,

Ya`ll might have, but locals and us other Southerners call em sand fleas. On both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. From Georgia down into Florida, around through The Forgotten Coast all the way to the Texas coast.

If you want a quick mess of sheephead, gather you some of them and-or some fiddlers.

Nic you ever eat smoked mullet with Harry A ?

I don`t think I know Harry A, but I`ve eaten smoked mullet all my life. I love those things. In fact, I need to get my net, hook up my boat, and run down to Wewa and pick up my buddy and go get a load of em. Now is the time, you know.
