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...

Bass
If you’re anything like me, you’ve been slowly losing your ever-loving mind for the past few months. This winter’s bass-fishing action has been subpar at best, and Mother Nature has...

February is a great time to catch some big spots, but where should you go? Lanier, Carters and Allatoona probably come to mind as great spotted bass destinations, but there may be a better choice up...

Spring Family Fun Catching Whiting On The Georgia Coast
The barrier islands on the southeast Georgia coast are paradise for an outdoors enthusiast. They vary from the private and pristine to federally and state-protected reserves, but all share a degree of raw beauty that is tough to beat. In addition, they offer great recreational options for the locals as well as the hordes of tourists that frequent the area.

I had the pleasure of experiencing some great early season angling action with a local family who spends a lot of time in these waters. The Rykard family, of Colonels Island, spends much of their free time on the water, and once the early spring temperatures start to rise, they are likely to be headed out most weekends.

I met Mitch and his daughters Caroline, 13, and Caitlyn, 11, on a cool morning in mid-March at the Half Moon Marina not far from their Colonels Island home. Also aboard was Paul Raudenbush, of Jacksonville, Fla., a friend of Mitch’s and one of my frequent fishing companions.

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...
