GABC held an open tournament on Lake Lanier to kick off its 2012 season on January 15th. Tommy Akers and Dewey Neese took first place honors with an excellent 5-fish limit of Lanier Spots weighing in at 17.93 pounds. Tommy and Dewey fished multiple locales on the lower end of Lanier below Brown's Bridge, focusing on main lake pockets. The majority of their fish came on Spotsticker jig heads with a green pumpkin finesse worm. They focused on brush and timber in depths ranging from 15 to 35 feet. They mentioned that their key pocket was one that was exposed to the afternoon breeze that picked up around noon and had lots of brush at the right depth. Tommy and Dewey also had the tournament's big fish - a monster spot weighing in at 5.25lbs.

Bill and Bill Booth took second place with a 15.09 limit of spots. They focused on a large pocket inside a lower-end creek. The majority of the Booth's fish fell victim to a drop-shot 4" Roboworm fished in the bottom of the creek channel around brush/timber at 35 to 40 feet. Despite their success with the drop-shot, the Booth's 4lb+ kicker came first thing in the morning near the back of the pocket on an Alabama Rig with 5 blue glimmer Zoom tab tail grubs on 1/4 oz jigheads. This was the only bite on the A-Rig all day for the Booths, but it was a good one.

Rounding out the top-5 were Billy and Mark Anglin in 3rd place with 5 fish weighing in at 13.54lbs, David and Harrison Morton in 4th place with 5 fish weighing in at 13.11lbs, and Randy and Albert Little in 5th place with 12.39lbs. All very nice catches of Lanier Spots. The teams noted several other successful patterns, including jigs fished through timber/brush deep and jerkbaits for suspended fish over 20 to 40 feet of water. With the warmer than usual conditions that have prevailed in Georgia this winter, it seems that lots of different patterns and depths are producing good fish right now.

More pattern information and the full tournament results can be found on the GABC's website at www.gabassclub.com.

Looking forward, GABC will hold another open tournament on Lake Jackson on February 19th out of Berry's boat launch. All are welcome to come check out the club. GABC will then kick off the official 2012 season March 18th. GABC will hold a meeting at Bass Pro Shops on Tuesday February 14th starting at 7pm. Among the agenda items for the meeting will be finalizing the schedule of lakes/ramps for the entire 2012 season. Following that meeting, the full schedule will be published on GABC's website at www.gabassclub.com. Please feel free to stop by BPS on Tuesday Feb. 14th to check us out. We are actively seeking new members, and would welcome anyone who wants to come out and fish the 2012 season with us.
