Winter Trout Fishing

Posted By on February 6, 2015

Ground hog day has come and gone, he predicted six more weeks of winter.  This is usually the time of year that I’m totally done with winter and ready for blistering sun.  That’s not really the case this year.  It’s been one of the milder winters I can remember and it’s almost over, in fact it looks like Saturday is going to be 6o degrees.  You see where I’m going with this, fishing has been good all winter and it looks to pick up steam real soon.

Those of you familiar with the Toccoa River likely know about the black caddis hatches.  If you don’t, you need to, it’s coming and soon.  Last year was the best hatch I had seen in years and I expect this year to be similar.  This is the closest thing we get to a “western” hatch and if you’ve never experienced it you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Gas prices and fishing pressure are low and temps are mild, give us a call to take advantage of this while it lasts!

Cold Weather Bass Fishing

Posted By on February 3, 2015

So you want to wait till spring time to start fishing?  You have no idea what your missing!  When I headed out for Lake Chickamauga Saturday morning , at 5:30 am it was 23 degrees. I told my buddy that morning, that I was fishing for a 8lb largemouth. We get to the lake, back the boat in water and try to crank it. The motor barely turns over. So what do you?  You put the boat back on the trailer and go buy a new battery. We get the battery changed out and get the boat in the water around 9am and start our day fishing. Needless to say the weather mans forecast was wrong. He was calling for sunny and highs around 53 with 5 mph winds.  Well that never happened. Try cloudy and 43 degrees with 15 mph winds. So after having all this happen to us, we still ended up having a awesome day fishing. No I didn’t catch the 8lb largemouth that I said I was going to catch. I caught a freaking Slaunch Donkey 9lb 10oz largemouth. Thanks to St. Croix rods, Strike King lures, Daiwa and Gamma line, you just helped me catch my personal best. Call and book your trip now.

Time to Hit The Water

Posted By on January 23, 2015

It’s that time of year to stop dreaming of fishing, and  just put on a extra layer of cloths and go for it. I love this time of year, cause only the hard core fisherman are on the water. But it’s also a good  time of year to catch some toads, I’ve been out the past couple weeks and have caught allot of fish. Some have came on dropshot, flaot-n-flay and the A-rig, if you’ve never fished these techniques you don’t know what your missing. Also this time of year is a great time to learn more about your electronics. Here’s a little tease of a 7lb largemouth caught on a umbrella rig last week. Nows a good time to get a head start on your spring  fishing trip, book now so you don’t miss out on your date with a big fish.

Gift Certificates!

Posted By on December 10, 2014

The holiday season is upon us!  Don’t know what to get that sportsman in your life for Christmas?  How about a gift certificate for a guided fly fishing trip in the north Georgia mountains.  Certificates are available in any amount or can be made for a full or half day trip of your choice.

Our private waters are fishing very well right now and if you would rather not wade, float trips on the Toccoa tail water have been producing some good fishing as well.  The best thing about a gift certificate is you can book the trip anytime throughout the year to fit your schedule.  Feel free to give us a call with any questions and enjoy a few pics of recent trips while you’re here.

Bass Fishing

Posted By on August 4, 2014

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, But I’ve got some nice fish porn. It’s August some of our lakes are fishing a little tough, but that’s what sets our guide service above the others, we have 9 lakes to chose where the best bite is.  Two of my top lakes right now are Chatuge and Chickamauga. It’s almost here, Fall is just around the corner. My most favorite time of the year to fish, If your looking to book a great fishing trip, give us a call now. Im already starting to book alot of trips for the fall. Lake Chickamauga is going to be on fire, with the grass and top water frog bite. Our mountain lakes will be on fire with some schooling spotted bass. If your needing to book a trip just to learn how to use your electronics and side imaging give us a call.

Lake Blue Ridge Spring Time Smallies

Posted By on March 25, 2014

All I can say is WoW, what a awesome day I had on the Ridge yesterday. Just when we thought the smallmouth were gone they showed up yesterday.  I guess the crazy cold winter we had put them in a Spring time feeding frenzy. I also caught some magnum spots, but It’s hard to talk about them when my favorite fish was biting like they did yesterday. If you like catching smallmouth I would go ahead and give us a call and book a trip, cause the prespawn bite should be awesome. Check theses photos out.

Spring is Here!

Posted By on March 8, 2014

This winter, while colder than any in recent memory, turned out to be very fishy and I had the pleasure of meeting many new clients.   Atlanta Falcon Josh Harris,  along with his brother and dad was one of the most memorable.  I don’t think the temps got out of the 20′s all day but, the fishing was down right epic, I lost count of the fish over twenty inches we caught that day.  I also had the pleasure of guiding for Circe and Carolyn from  Georgia Women Fly Fishers, two awesome trips with two awesome ladies, if you are a female and a fly fisher you should check them out.  I could go on and on about this winter but, it’s slated to hit 70 degrees here today and it’s time to spring forward!

Our private waters are already starting to heat up.  On a trip this week I witnessed not only black caddis but, very large mayflies starting to come off and the trout are taking notice.  We also have a beautiful new section on the Tick open this season for those looking for more of a back country trophy trout experience.  No matter if you are looking for numbers or challenging technical water, we have the perfect private water experience for you.

Wading in beautiful mountain streams surrounded by trophy trout not your cup of tea?  Well you’re in luck because the Toccoa tail water is back and Reel Job Fishing will tailor a drift boat trip to suit your needs!  After a few years of sub par fishing after the reconstruction of Blue Ridge dam the river is fishing up to it’s potential once again.  Yesterday at precisely three o’clock the black caddis turned on like somebody flipped a switch and I quickly brought fish after fish to hand.  This is not to say the old girl won’t occasionally hurt your feelings, because she is still the Toccoa tail water and she has humbled many good fishermen over the years but, this river is without a doubt poised to deliver the best fishing we have seen in over five years.

I’m going to try to put up at least one post each week throughout the season so, check back often for trip reports.  Mean while enjoy a few pics from winter.

With these cold fronts we’ve been having the past couple weeks, It’s time to start planning your  Spring bass fishing trips. Starting toward the end of March or first of April, we will start running our live bait trips on Lake Burton for some monster spots and some mammoth largemouth. Also the start of March is prime time to book a trip on Lake Chickamauga. If you didn’t know by now, Lake Chickamauga is one of the top bass fishing lakes in the southeast and in 2013 Lake Chickamauga was ranked the number 6th lake in the Nation. With numerous tournaments winning weights being  5 fish over 35lb and Flw outdoors tournament winning 4 day total was over 103lb. Chickamauga is a type of lake you can fish for numbers or fish for toads. There is many different ways to fish the Chick, spinnerbaits, Carolina rig, jigs, dropshot, shaky head, crankbaits, Tennessee Rig. If your looking to catch some nice large mouth and a chance for a big one, give us a call now. Where already starting to book up for sring fishing. Here some photos of Chickamauga fish.
