2015 began my 32nd year Guiding on Lake Lanier! The craziness of it all is I still love to fish, and guide clients, for all types of fish. I am not sure where the obsession came from, but I still love it now as much as did 32 years ago. I get asked fairly often “are you burned out after 32 years” The answer is a absolutely not! One of the greatest aspects of fishing is the constant evolution of the sport that will always allow you to learn more and improve as an angler.

As good as you may be, you can always improve! New baits, techniques and amazing advances in equipment and electronics enhance the simple thrill of feeling that bite on the other end. That feeling never gets old!

I’m looking forward to a great 2016. The lake is fishing well and all indications are that the fish populations are strong. The next 2 to 4 years should be very prolific!

Make it a point to go fishing more in 2016. Take your kids and make some memories, you’ll be glad you did!
