I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday. I had some great trips over the weekend with several new customers and we had great results. Thanks to everyone who came out with me!! I appreciate your business!!
On Friday, I had out Roger who was looking to get the feel of places to fish during the winter. We mainly worked on the shaky head and the presentation of the bait during this time of year. The bite has been very light and it requires some focus to detect a strike. We worked on this together through the afternoon and Roger picked it up well. I am honored to say that Roger caught the biggest spot he has ever caught with me that day – the 4 lbs, 8 oz Toad pictured above – great catch Roger!!
I started Saturday morning off shooting a video with Rick Steckelberg (Owner of Sworming Hornet Lures) and his partner Kevin Stowers. Richy Rich from LanierMAPPED.com was our video man, and he made us look good (tougher job for him with me involved! LOL). We caught some good fish on the Fish Head Spin that morning, and demonstrated the use of the new Fish Head Swarm, and we also spent time with the Fish Head Dude, the Fish Head Shaker, and the Fish Head Drop Shot bait. I think the highlight of the video is the conversation that Rick and I have regarding the history of the baits to include their creation, as well as inside tips and tricks to catch more fish while using Sworming Hornet Lures. Rick will be taking the video out to I-Cast in Las Vegas in a couple of weeks, and I will have it posted on my site upon its publishing. Should be out soon – I will keep you all posted – I think you will enjoy the information and find it very beneficial!!
On Saturday afternoon, I had a half-day trip with Joey and his pal Kenny who was down from Ohio visiting. We took out Kenny’s boat and worked on ditch fishing. We had a nice sack on a shaky head worm – Kenny turned out to be the star of the day as he stuck several good fish including a pig that was right at 5 pounds. Nice work to you both – great fishing!
On Sunday, I had the pleasure of taking out James and Coach. These guys were a lot of fun and the fish cooperated nicely for us. They bagged a 17 pound sack on Sunday. Ol’ Coach took big fish honors for the day with a 4 pound spot – James was close with a 3 lbs, 12 oz spot, but he still had to buy dinner that night! LOL! We caught our fish Sunday in and around ditches, with fish coming anywhere from 4 feet to 30 feet deep. Overall, it was a great day. Coach and James – Great job out there!!
I have Thursday, Friday, and Saturday open this week if anyone would like to get out. The weather will be warming up by then and the fish should be more concentrated with the colder weather. It should be on like Donkey Kong! Give me a call or shoot me a note if you would like to get out! 770-542-7764
Thanks to all and May God Bless –
