Hello Friends and Sponsors – I had the pleasure this past weekend of being involved in presentations on the Bass Tank at the Atlanta Boat Show. My presentations focused on the Fish Head Spin and its effective use in all seasons, but particularly the winter time. I demonstrated all the specifics of effective presentation with the bait, and it was a big hit! The fish in the tank ate the fish head spin (with hooks removed of course!) on every cast. After each presentation, I answered individual questions and personally explained the proper use of the bait. Thanks to everyone that attended – I enjoyed meeting each of you! Also, thanks to Scott Pledger over at Wackem for giving me that cool jersey to wear! Finally, a special thanks to Ken Sturdivant for inviting me to speak at the show and for doing all the fabulous Lowrance presentations – great job Ken! Fishing has been fun this week. The the lake has changed dramatically over the past few days with the unseasonably warm weather and massive rain. The lake is up over 2 feet in just the past 2 days and continues to rise. The water temperature has risen nearly 5 degrees. The good news is that the fish have responded positively and are biting! A number of different patterns are working right now and things are changing each day with the changing conditions. The fish head spin, crankbaits, jigs, jerkbaits, and Davis Shaky Head worms have all been productive. As has been the case, both shallow and deep approaches will work on any given day. The creek ditches remain our focus – we work both shallow and deep each day and then pursue the best options as the day progresses. We have caught fish as shallow as 3-5 feet and as deep as 45-50 feet. Stay flexible in your approach and find the best pattern on any given day and go with it – I recommend staying on the move and finding the active schools of fish willing to feed. Once you find them, your first accurate cast should catch them. The weather looks to be stabilizing the next week with lots of sunshine and good temperatures most of the week. I am booked over this weekend and next weekend, but have most of the weekdays open this coming week. Give me a call and lets go fish and enjoy some sunshine and good fishing!!
