Happy New Year, See You at the Fisharama!!

    I always recognize the new year as having officially begun once I have landed my first river bass. Some years don't ring in until March, but this new year rang in for me January 6th, about the earliest I can remember. That's one of the great things about GRF. I've got about 450 potential fishing partners, many of whom will talk me off the couch and onto a river in early January. I never used to fish during winter. Fish don't bite in winter. Right?

    Almost right. I was accompanied by 4 GRFers: Randy (Riverpirate), Jim Nielson, Will (kokosinglover), and Todd (The General). These guys provided great company on the river! Despite weather that reached 70 degrees, the fishing was pretty slow. My theory is that Jim's boat scared them off:

    All told, I believe we ended up with 11 bass between 5 guys. Will caught a shoal bass that weighed a couple pounds to take big fish honors and I was able to ring in the new year with these three bass:

New Year's Largemouth. This little guy nailed a big, black spinnerbait.

This one hit a little bitty white spinnerbait.

My first shoal bass of '07! Not a bad one either!!

    On another note, GRF will have a booth at both the 2007 Georgia Wildlife Federation Fisharama in Atlanta (February 2-4) and in Perry (February 9-11). Hope to see everybody there!!
