Hello Friends and Sponsors! The fishing out on Big Sid has been great for us all week, and we have been busting some big sacks. We have stayed with the topwater and swimbait bite and ran it each day. By far, those baits have accounted for most of the big fish in our sacks this week and last. We have also picked up a few good fish on a jerkbait fished with a steady retrieve as well as a jig when the fish are not as active, but the swimbait/topwater was the way to go this week for big fish in general. That being said, we did lose an absolute donkey on Friday with a jig early in the morning, that would have pushed our sack of spots to the 24+ pound mark that day. Some pics of that day are attached as well as pictures from all of my trips these past few days. As far as baits, we have been using the Blue Back Painted Farley Bait a good bit this week, as well as the Daniel Truitt Custom Painted Sebiles in blue back color. The spook has been good to us on top this week. The Spro jerkbaits have produced on a steady retrieve, and a brown jig with a cinnamon pepper trailer gave us some nice fish in the slower periods. We have focused on fishing the brush in 18-25 feet of water on both humps and points, with a concentration on the humps. Things are starting to shift however with the weather change, and I expect some tactic and location tweaking will be necessary to stay on them in the coming days. More to come on that as the week progresses. I am back on the water this coming Monday for another 6 day week starting with 2 half day trips tomorrow and then full days the rest of the week through Saturday. I do have most of the first week of October open, so give me a ring and let’s go bust some toads!!! I then have scattered days through October open as well. This is a great time to fish, so call me today to book your trip! 770-542-7764 For fishing reports on other Georgia Lakes, make sure to check out: www.havefunfishing.com A SPECIAL NOTE: My good buddy Kurt Dove, who is a Professional Tournament Angler and Guide on Lake Amistead in Texas, also produces a talk show for Bass Edge (www.bassedge.com). On his September show, Kurt talks with the top two finishers in the FLW Cup on Lake Lanier, Jacob Wheeler and Scott Canterbury. They discuss some great tips and tactics regarding how they approached fishing our pond here in Georgia, and they offer some very interesting insights.
