Hello Everyone –

I would like to start this week’s report with an exciting announcement regarding LanierMAPPED.com. I am extremely happy to report that Eric Aldrich (AKA EZSpin) has joined the LanierMAPPED.com Pro Staff! We will post an official announcement soon to include a press release, but we are thrilled to have Eric with us. He is an accomplished tournament angler, fishing product representative, and an expert on Lake Lanier – I know his contributions will add a great new dimension to the LanierMAPPED.com product experience!

Onto fishing and this week’s Lake Lanier Fishing Report! I was out 3 times this week, and found the bite to be good every day. I was able to find a number of different viable patterns through the week that produced fish – always nice to have options! My strongest pattern seems to remain the slow tapering clay/rock/sandy primary and secondary points/shelves around the lake. Fish on these are shallow and have been coming on flukes, crankbaits, and FHS. As you may know too, there are plenty of spawning fish in the backs of pockets. These spotted bass can be taken on a number of baits to include topwaters such as a Rico. Lots of fun can be had with a Horny Toad frog now as well – buzz it through the grass in the back of the creeks and hang on! You can also fish for the actual bedders you see, but that can be a long process sometimes and not something I usually focus on, but it can be a good tournament strategy. Richie Rich got out with me this week and we had a good day on the water together – his was “gooder” than mine – LOL! He always seems to do better from the back of my boat – maybe next time I will make him drive!

More great news from LanierMAPPED.com – the JIMBO code now gets you a 20% Discount on all of our products!!! 20% !! What a great time to purchase main lake clips as well as clips at the mouths of the creeks. Strong topwater time is just around the corner in a couple of weeks – be ready and know where those brush-piles are and the trophy spotted bass are hiding! For packages, I highly recommmend Main Lake North and Six Mile Creek right now – you just simply can’t go wrong!

Another big Welcome to LanierMAPPED.com Pro Staff Member Eric Aldrich!! Until next time everybody – tight lines!!
