GO FOR THE GATORS
Factually, "Adventures in Gator Country" (Where to Go, March) is correct, but it's misleading. Because of elevated acidity levels, bass fishing in the Okefenokee swamp has been on the decline. There are mature bass out there, but they're not spawning. Come to Okefenokee to paddle with gators, catch bream and bowfin, and enjoy the unique scenery. But don't come to catch a lot of bass.
