Night Tournaments

I'm comfortable on the lake day or night but I've never caught anything to warrant my being there risking safety sake only to catch short fish. Venting here as we've come to the point now where my bass club is fishing the third night tournament in a row. We fish once a month and when it comes to these night tourneys after it gets dark I'm done, ready to go. This is probably the most heavily visited Corps of Engineers lakes in the country.

In the heat of Summer in Atlanta, GA fishing 4pm till midnight might sound good but I just don't see the point. So much changes from a boat operation perspective and as a boater I'm preoccupied watching my partner to make sure he's ok. We do have the same flurry of activity at dusk as with dawn but everything moves slower after dark and for me safety concerns abound. I ask myself why I am there...

Our next event is Saturday afternoon and evening. Wish me luck. I plan to get my work done early!

My son and I are signed up to do a Free SpotSticker Lures Tournament this weekend (April 3rd) organized by Mr Ryan Coleman (Guide, S.O.B. Fishing Products and SpotSticker bait-makers) and we have also signed up to do the Free Gambler Tournament on Lake Sidney Lanier April 23rd. Check out the link - there may be one near you. The only catch is you have to use their lures exclusively. Other than that it's a free day on the lake with some friendly competition on the side! #SpotSticker, #S.O.B. #GamblerBait

Well even in 50 degree water they're still quite active. Today we found they wanted to chase something. That's an upswing from what we had a couple of weeks ago.

Welcome new members! I know its winter in the northern hemisphere so what occupies your angling mind during this time? Does anyone here ice fish?

I live in no ice conditions and have the pleasure of fishing year round. This month I've been out twice. Jan 16th I participated in a bass club tournament on Lake Sidney Lanier. Water surface temp was slightly over 50 degF on this blustery day. I was off my game but I think we fared well. My partner was a guest fishing in his first tourney with the club. He did well carrying 4 bass for over 9 pounds total to the scales. I think I got 4 bites all day and put only one keeper in the boat. It went 1.81 pound on the scale. I was pleased with our effort... I really believe we did all we could.

Yesterday my son and I fished Lanier. Water was 48 to 52 degF and we had blue skies and hardly a breeze. Fishing 5.5 hours I don't think either of us had a bite. We covered some old favorite spots and a few new ones. In the end we did locate a new hump, with brush on it, adjacent to the old river channel. Sweet, huh?

We took second place in the club championship this past Sunday. It turned out wonderful after having really struggled the day prior. With 5 fish for 12.84 pounds (5.82 kg) these are some nice samples of Kentucky Spotted Bass from beautiful Lake Sidney Lanier just above Atlanta, GA, USA. All were released unharmed to fight another day.

One of my favourite fish, Esox lucius or Pike in the UK.
