Hello Fellow Anglers –

Look for some great new features and “How To Use” sections as explained by our newest team member and local fishing professional, Eric Aldrich. Stay tuned!
Fishing this week was great. The spotted bass are active and “junk fishing”, as I am sure you have read from many others, is quite appropriate now. I was able to find some good topwater fish this week on a Rico, fished around rock, clay, and sandy areas both in the main lake and in creeks. I believe some of these are spawners, with feeders mixed in. I also caught fish in these same areas on a fish head spin and a scrounger spin, along with a fluke. My best results, however, came on Thursday afternoon, again in these same areas, with a shaky head/green finesse worm combo. I caught several solid fish on this bait with my largest being just under 4 lbs. They were all very shallow (less than 6 feet) and the worm fish all appeared to be pre-spawn. They are quite spunky now with lots of jumping – they really put on a show. My arms were sore on Friday from setting the hook so much!! That’s what they call a good pain….
Remember gang, use the JIMBO code at LanierMAPPED.com for a 20% Discount on all of our products!! What a great time to purchase main lake clips as well as clips at the mouths of the creeks. The topwater action is here and will only get better- be ready and know where those brush-piles are and the magnum spotted bass are hiding! For packages, I highly recommmend Main Lake North and Six Mile Creek right now, along with the Four Mile area – you will get bit!
