Officers stay the same
The Levy County Commission started off the new year by choosing to stick with the same leadership it had last year.
But the vote did not come until after the commission deadlocked 2-2 on a motion by District 3 Commissioner Marsha Drew (R-Yankeetown) to name District 2 Commissioner Chad Johnson (R-Chiefland) as chairman and District 4 Commissioner Ryan Bell (R-Chiefland) as vice chairman. Bell and District 1 Commissioner Mike Joyner (R-Morriston) voted against the proposal.

Ok, now that I have that out of my system, let’s talk cold front fishing. This is what we have been asking for in the last few weeks. Our fishing has been scattered but good.
A shot of cold air will drop the water temps and school up our fish. It will move them into deeper holes and pockets of water. This is a very good thing if you know where some good holes are.
