Hello Everyone –

I would like to begin this week’s report by sharing some exciting news – I have added another sponsor to Jimbo’s Lake Lanier Guide Service! I am excited to report that I am now a pro-staff member for Slongs Fishing Lures. Slongs is a family based business in Kentucky, and I look forward to helping them promote their awesome shaky heads and spinnerbaits to the Georgia/Alabama area. Sean and Chris are just awesome people and I look forward to working with them, and am proud to be a member of their staff! More to come in the future on these great lures and how I use them to catch giant spots on Lanier!


Fishing has been great the past few days. I have been on an excellent big fish pattern. The bites are limited, but the quality is awesome! I have caught several fish in the 5 lbs class on this pattern, and I expect it to hold for at least the next week based on the weather forecast.

I have been working jerkbaits on shallow rock for my big bites. I have been alternating between slow-rolling these jerbaits and a jerk, jerk, pause retrieve. The fish are on rock points in the creeks as well as some main-lake areas. We have also been catching fish on Kick Bass Jigs with Wackem Jig Trailers in 20-30 feet of water. The Kick Bass Jigs and the Wackem Trailers make an awesome combination – check out the websites – I have hotlinked them for your convenience – just click and view! For the jig bites, rock is also the key – look for steeper rock points for the best success.

I recommend everyone check out the LanierMAPPED.com site ASAP – there are lots of recent changes that I am sure you will be interested in!! And remember gang, use the JIMBO Code at LanierMAPPED.com for a 20% discount on all clips you purchase.

Until next time everybody – tight lines!!
