Hey Gang –
I was back out on a mid-day trip with David and his son Michael yesterday. They had fished Lanier several times before without much success, and wanted a little help.
I was happy to provide just that, a little help, because they didn’t need much! This was an experienced father/son duo – these guys could flat fish!! They were great with a rod and reel and really made it happen on the water, and they were a blast to be with!!
They bagged a 17 lbs, 3 oz sack in about 4 hours of fishing yesterday. Michael took big fish honors with a 4 lbs, 5 oz chunk on his third cast of the day. Dad won the numbers battle, but he was never far behind on the size – he just never quite made it over 4 lbs. I think location adjustments were all that was required for these two. They too thought you had to go deep to catch fish this time of year. Not the case as they learned. All fish were caught on a crankbait in 12 feet of water or less. We stayed in the creeks yesterday due to the high winds on the main lake. If we could of hit a couple of my main lake hot spots, I think we would have made 20 pounds easily.
Great job David and Michael – looking forward to our Spring trip!
I have Wed, Thursday, and Fri open this week if you would like to catch some studs up shallow. The weather is warming again and it should be an awesome big-fish bite! Give me a ring to book your trip!! 770-542-7764
Thanks to all, and may God Bless –
