Fishing Report: I Kicked some Bass this week! The cooler weather has already brought some good fish shallower. I found fish very shallow in the early AM in the creeks, and then gradually fished deeper as the day progressed. Later in the day, I caught fish off of laydowns close to deep water, as well as rocky bluffs. I dipped my 1/2 oz, football head pumpkin-green Kick Bass Jig (with purple and orange accents) in JJ’s Magic Clear – and they bit and held on! I caught several fish over 2 lbs, and my biggest was close to 4 lbs. Also, as the day progressed, I threw the Fish Head Spin on windy points and bluffs and caught several using a medium retreive with pauses – contact with the bottom was important. I was also able to find some schooling fish when I was out, but they are tougher to catch. The best way to 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. Work it quickly in the middle of the frey and hold on! I still have dates open during the week and weekends, so call me at 770-542-7764 to get in on some of the great Fall action – it will only get better from here! 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!
