Welcome to the board, Puck! I should let all of the forum members know that I've had the pleasure of fishing with this guy, and he's developing quite a reputation with the local bluegill population. They've put up wanted posters saying "When this guy's around, don't eat anything!"
Seriously though, I'm not familiar with the warmwater fishing up in that mountain area. Maybe some others can chime in.
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
