Draw-Down Bass At High Falls
March is one of our best bass fishing months, but where should you go? Would you like to head to a lake where you won’t be bothered by pleasure boaters, there are almost no tournaments and one of the best populations of bass more than 15 inches long among Georgia reservoirs?

If so, plan a trip to High Falls. And that’s just during a normal March. This year, DNR is lowering High Falls 5 to 6 feet to work on the dam. Hemmed up, hungry bass in a small lake? Sign us...

Scary Incident For Trout Fisherman On The Hooch
So I’m pretty embarrassed about this, but I feel like I should share it as a cautionary tale. You can never be too careful, even when the conditions are perfect...

Bed Time For Burton Bass
Lake Burton, north of Atlanta near Helen, is a 2,200-acre jewel nestled between the foothills of north Georgia. Deep and clear, it shares the characteristics of most mountain lakes, but Burton has an added attraction. This beautiful body of water is surrounded by some magnificent homes. In fact this lake is more likely known as a playground for the...
