Hey Everybody –

I have some exciting news to report – I have added another sponsor! It is my pleasure to announce that I have teamed up with Scott Pledger and his group at Wackem Crazy Baits! Wackem offers an outstanding line of hand-poured plastics in a variety of colors and designs. These baits are very durable, and fish love ’em! I am proud to be working with Wackem, and look forward to keep you all posted on what colors and baits are working out on the pond!


The cooler weather this week brought a BIG improvement to the fishing! In the mornings, I have been pitching 1/2oz Kick Bass Jigs with Wackem Crazy Craw trailers to shallow grass and cover in the back of creeks to catch fish. There are also fish on key pieces of shoreline cover. Work these areas carefully with a Kick Bass Jig or a Wackem pointy tail worm on a 3/8oz jig-head for best results. A buzzbait has been working well in the AM for some better fish – I am working the bait over the grass as well as the steep rock walls up north – look for transition changes in the bank to produce the best fish. Also, I am happy to report that there are still schooling fish in the lower lake. A variety of topwaters will work if you can get it in the middle of the frey when the fish are busting blue backs on the surface. I prefer the walking baits like a Spook, but others will work as well. I have found areas around the mouths of the creeks to be most productive, but you can see the schooling in many other places also. Sun is key for the schooling bite – afternoons seem to be the best time to target these fish. A drop-shot is still working in the brush – I have been targeting brush in 15-20 feet of water for these bites. I expect the cooling weather to really keep the fish active over the next few weeks – NOW is the time to go – let’s get out there!! 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. Visit my website at Jimboonlanier.com More to come next week with another full report! Good luck out there!
