Hey Gang – Well the lake is finally almost exactly back to full pool. It stands at .06 feet over full at the time of this post. The lake has been experiencing some turnover. Areas of the lake look good, and others not so much. Aside from all that stuff, the great news is the fish are biting well right now. The other good news is that you can pretty much take your pick of how and where you want to catch them too….it’s pretty fun as you can run a number of different patterns through the day and catch big fish on most of them. The only thing pretty consistent for me is that we are starting our days shallow on rock almost every trip for the last couple of weeks. After that, I let the conditions lead me to the best bite. And folks, that could literally be almost anything. Topwater over brush, to jig on rock, to a shaky head on a point, to a drop shot deep around the timber. Its all there right now. Here is a list of some of the baits we have caught good fish on recently: spinnerbait, crankbait, Chattahoochee Jig, Davis Shaky Head, drop shot, topwater, Fish Head Spin, jerkbait, and a Sworming Hornet Bite Size Herring Swimbait. Whew. Long List. LOL. I think the best message I can send to you guys without having you in my boat to show you is to stay versatile, especially as the numerous fronts of fall come and go. Try different areas and techniques. Don’t stay in any one area too long and don’t have a favorite bait. The best bite is different every day for us. This is a great time of year to work on any variety of techniques you may want to learn. I am full this week and have been for the past couple of weeks since my move (Thank you for the calls!), but I do have most of next week available as it stands now. Give me a call and let’s get out there. The leaves are really starting to change and it is gorgeous on our pond. Lastly, I want to offer a special congratulations to Noah Pescitelli for his 2nd Place Finish in the the Wackem High School State Championship this weekend. Noah and his partner had a 2 day total of 20.76 pounds and missed the victory by .03 pounds. Wow. Noah and his partner are now qualified for the National High School Championship in 2014. Way to go Noah!! For fishing reports on other Georgia Lakes, please visit: www.havefunfishing.com Thanks to all, and May God Bless – Jimbo
