  2. I have been waiting for a day like this all year! As expected, found some largemouth and Spots on beds! Caught this rare Lanier largemouth at first pocket. Used ...more a white craw to pester them. Ended up with about 16-17 bass today. Most on wacky worm and 2.8 Keitec for #s, not size. Will send another pic of One of please the 3 larger Spots.

  3. Took off yesterday and did some Crappie fishing for a nice change. Used 1/24 oz head and jj magic to chartreuse the tail. Caught about 15.

  4. Too much drizzle to take boat out. So decided to walk And fish secondary points for prespawners. I have never seen Lake linear like this in 15 years. The water is ...more 5 feet above full pool, so casting between trees on the point was needed. Ha ha

      Thanks Josh! I got my PB spot couple yrs ago cruising bank during prespawn about 4.5lb. Same technique just using a larew tattletail worm back then. Lanier has ...more some big LM too, but Spots fight so much better. :)
    3. Thats a nice Spot Mike. congrats.

  5. Only had little over an hr, so Only grabbed 2 rods. In between rain storms here north of Atlanta, but had to get out a bit! Weโ€™ve had about 3โ€“4 inches of rain in ...more the past 24 hours, so like was it up and not as clear. Only caught two, but the second one was a donkey.! So, I would say time well spent! Ha ha hope everyone had a terrific Christmas and will have a safe new year.
