Hello Everyone –

I am excited this week to welcome a new sponsor to Jimbo’s Spotted Bass Guide Service – Denali Custom Fishing Rods ! I am proud to be a Denali Pro Staff member, and look forward to working with Scott Estes and the team at Denali to help promote these fantastic rods. I really love my Denalis, and I am very excited to try their brand new Noirwood Series. More to come on this as I will be meeting with Scott next week at the Cup – I will provide all of you the detailed information in my next report!

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 pacakages – this is a great value – you get approximately 250 videos and waypoints with each Semi-Pro package, and you can pick the section of the lake you want – Uppper, 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: The topwater and swimbait bite remains strong on Lanier. When the fish are active, they will eat these baits very well. The chrome Super Spook continues to be key for topwater fish – and I have found that fish we have caught on top are the better fish by far. A good strategy right now to accumulate weight during sunny days is to run and gun the brush with top water – the good fish are there, and they will eat. While the sun is still a plus, the morning bite seems to be improving as well. Make sure to check the Buford Dam Generation Schedules by calling 770-945-1466. The fish bite better in the current. Both the “old” and “new” brush are producing for me. Not every hole produces, but it doesn’t take long to figure out if they are active when you stop – your first 2 or 3 casts to the right spot will tell the story. The drop shot is still working as well, 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/watermellon-red colors have been my choices. As far as recent hotspots on the lake, I would highly suggest the brush in front of the navigation bouy near Clip 394, as well as the brush noted in Clip 44 and Clip 58. Call me to book a trip and catch some hot top water action! I still have dates open, so call me at 770-542-7764 to book a trip.
