Happy Holidays to all and I hope this note finds you all well and enjoying the season with family and friends!
We have had an outstanding couple of weeks on Lake Lanier with some excellent success and some great trips!
I have been blessed in that I have had experienced anglers all the way to folks new to bass fishing over the past couple of weeks, and all have been successful. I always enjoy teaching and providing insights on bass fishing and see it manifest immediately in the results.
We have been focusing our efforts shallow for the most part, but have seen a greater progression of the larger spots out to deeper water over the past week or so. This past week, we had an outstanding week for numbers, but not as many big fish as the week before. I was out with Sam from Flowery Branch on one day of note, and together we caught 37 bass in a four hour period! In December! Great stuff. We also had several days with catches numbering from 15-25 a day with most fish being in the 2-3 pound range.
We have been catching the bigger fish shallow on a crankbait and jerkbait, particularly in the early AM and late afternoon, and a jig and worm have been very productive through the day. We have also been targeting some fish in the creek ditches in 18-25 feet of water. These fish have been eating a spoon and a shaky head worm very well. A Fish Head Spin is also working on these fish, as well as a jerkbait and crankbait at times.
I have included some pictures from the action over the last couple of weeks. Thanks to everyone that was out with me!!
I am currently in Indiana visiting family for the holidays, but will be back in town by December 27th.
I currently have a trip booked on Dec 28th, but I have the 29th, 30th, and 31st open if you would like to get out. The weather looks great for next week – give me a call and let’s catch some fish!! 770-542-7764
Thanks, and may God Bless.
