Well BB, I'm glad you got a hook wet. Pretty good luck to hook up with Mr. Vanderford, I'm sure he got you on the fish. Maybe next time I'll leave my boat at home and just hang out at the bait shop with you, kinda like when the pretty girl hitch-hikes while the guy hides in the bushes and only comes out when somebody stops, lol. I realize my early morning routine isn't for everybody, I just love to see the sun rise on the water. I'm going again friday if you wanna go, not sure where yet.

Default Thanks, Bill!!

Well.. mission accomplished! Legendary guide Bill Vanderford got a call on the BatPhone..I mean FishPhone and heard I was hanging around the corner bait store trying to thumb rides.. LOL.. no, my buddy, Larry called and asked if he was out and he had just put in to do a little scouting for his trips tomorrow. He had just returned from Houma Louisiana where he was fishing and writing about fishing for redfish.
Bill hadnt been on Lanier since I had and that was the tourney.
Now we all know the crazy weather we have been having..and whether or not its effecting the fishing...

All I can say is it was a little different day for us today than the first time we went out together.. and caught 45!
The water temp didnt get above 64 that we saw except in one cove. The coves is where we found them today. We fished from 12:30 - 4. We boated seven fish and below are the three keepers. Fishstache!! It was weird fishing with a bum finger but I did ok!
It felt great to be out there today. This injury has made me realize how very important fishing is in my life and how it keeps my world in balance.

Bill V knows absolutley everything there is to know about Lake Lanier, I mean he's been guiding on it since 1971!! Hello, legend! Want to hear some awesome stories about the sport, or people of bass fishing, or fishing with presidents, book a trip with Bill Vanderford. Its crazy how many people he knows and has fished with.

Cuda, Todd, Larry, how did ya'll do today? Let me know if youre on the water again anytime soon..hint, hint. Thanks for trying to get me out there today. And big thanks to Bill for swinging round to get me.

Took my inlaws out for thier first time in a boat, first time using rod and reels, etc, etc. It was an interesting day..... Tried some new spots but only boated 2 cats. Never saw temps over 66 where we were at. Good day though, and they lasted longer on the water than I expected. I'm headed to a new pay pond today for some bank relaxing. Supposed to be some nice sized cats in this little pond.

Bill is a great guide and great friend. (Plus he loves race cars! ) His know how on matters of fishing and Lanier tips are outstanding. He is also into the eco-system and does trips for general facts and wildlife information.
As to stripers, his swirlybird lures were a big help to me when I had a boat & fished the cold months of winter. Overall, I've learned much from him on fishing the lake and I look ahead one day to boat/fish them stripes again soon.
I caught my biggest spot on a trip with my dad and Bill a few years back.

That's the one, and yes, it has some monsters. I watched it being stocked today, then fished it. I personally put a 42 pounder in the water. I'm gonna make a post about the place later tonight, so look for it.........

Default 2nd time out..no charm.. Finger still on mend :)

I'm back and I made it out to Oconee much later than I expected yesterday. The bite was gone by 9:30AM..according to a few others we saw on the water and that after 2 hours on the water, all I had to show for it was this little cat. Very purty cat..had to give a kiss for giving me a pull!
When I get back to Sugar Creek Marina I find the latest of LakeLife Magazine with my friend Bill Vanderford on the cover and a great article he wrote inside about what a magical place Oconee is for fishing. Bill even gives a shout out to my friend Larry Foster in the article. So if you are around Lake Oconee, pick it up!

Thanks for the shout out for both of us Jenn. Bill has been a good friend and fishing partner for years. I'm also looking forward to fishing the fall tournament with you at Oconee. We'll give it our best. It's a nice time of the year and I know all will enjoy.
