Hello again from Jimbo –

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: I was out 4 times this week with mixed results. I was able to find some schooling fish each day I was out, but they are tough to catch. The best way is catch these fish is to have a topwater bait at the ready, and sling it in the middle of the surface action when you see it. A bone gunfish was my choice for topwater – you can also throw a fish-head spin through these surface fish and catch them as well. Use a medium-fast retrieve with intermittent jerks to create reaction strikes. I also expounded on the steep bank fish pattern from last week. We worked Wackem Crazy Baits on red clay and rock bluff walls. The fish were holding at the end of cover, such as laydown trees or brush that was in the 20 foot zone. I have to say, I was impressed with the Wackem Baits – they offer a great selection of baits that hold up to to repetitive fish and maintain their scent as well. Scott and the team over at Wackem have it going on – thanks to Steve for turning me on to these awesome baits!! My favorite is the Pointy Tail Worm, with the Wild Thing (as a jig trailer or fished alone on a jig head or pegged sinker rig) a close second. We got bit on the the Tomato as well as the R&S Sand colors. Check out their site at www.wackemcrazybaits.com when you have a chance. A special call out to Russ and his dad, Buddy – we enjoyed a great day together on the water this week – even though the fishing was tough, we had a great time – looking forward to our next trip! I still have dates open during the week and weekends, 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! Good luck out there!

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!
