Hello Everyone –

I am excited this week to welcome 3 new sponsors to Jimbo’s Spotted Bass Guide Service – Sworming Hornet Lures (The Original Fish Head Spin), Kick Bass Baits (Jigs and Chatterbaits), and JJ’s Magic Attractant. I look forward to working with each one of these great companies, and have already had great experiences with each. I know these products work, and I will be sharing insights from my trips on how to use these products to catch more fish!

Remember gang, continue to 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 fish are in the off-shore brush now, and the LanierMAPPED.com information is more important than ever. For packages, I strongly recommend one of our Semi-Pro packages – this is a great value – you get approximately 250 videos and way points with each Semi-Pro package, and you can pick the section of the lake you want – Upper, Mid-lake, or Lower end. Focus on the humps with brush and brush piles on points/drops near deep water. LanierMAPPED.com is more important than ever right now – we have those key areas marked with video and that information will put you on the fish. And, better yet, our Pro’s Package is available on an IPAD – all the information comes pre-loaded – WOW!!

Fishing Report: Fishing has been bit tougher out on the pond of late. The top-water bite has been spotty at best, and the swim bait bite is hit or miss as well, depending on the weather and water conditions. I did some exploration this week up North and found some interesting results. We caught fish by pitching a Kick Bass Jig into shallow cover in morning in the backs of pockets and creeks, and then moved out to steeper walls with isolated cover to keep getting bit as the day progressed. The fish were surprisingly shallow in the morning, as we caught fish in 2 feet of water or less. I tipped my Kick Bass Jig with a pumpkin green Yum Twin Tail Trailer dipped in JJ’s chartreuse dye. The drop shot is still working as well in the lower lake, but the size of the fish has not been as good as in week’s past. The pink Roboworm as well as the pumpkin green/watermelon-red colors have been my choices for the drop shot. After Cody’s success with the Cross-Tail Shad, I started throwing some of those baits he gave me during our trip, and they worked! And of course, I dip all of my plastics in JJ’s to get more bites. As Kevin Hawk demonstrated, the Fish Head Spin tipped with a super fluke Jr. fished above the brush is working as well when the fish are active. I still have dates open, so call me at 770-542-7764 to book a trip. Visit my website at Jimboonlanier.com More to come next week with another full report!

The FLW Cup on Lanier was an awesome event! I had the pleasure of guiding Cody Meyer during the pre-practice period for the Cup – he finished second and won $100,000 for his effort. Had his electronics not failed on Day 4, I am sure he would have given Kevin Hawk a strong run for the Championship. LanierMAPPED.com had a booth at the event – we saw many visitors during the weekend, and made some new friends as well. Thanks to everyone for stopping by, and a special thanks to all that purchased this awesome information! I also gave away a guide trip on Lanier, and am happy to report that Ken Amandolia was the winner! Congratulations Ken – I look forward to our day on the water!
