Georgia Proposing a hunting and fishing license restructure.

AIM FOR SUCCESS: INVEST IN GEORGIA’S FISH AND WILDLIFE – OPEN FORUMS SET TO DISCUSS POTENTIAL CHANGES TO HUNTING AND FISHING LICENSES

The natural resources and recreational opportunities found in Georgia are among the best in the nation and residents enjoy some of the lowest hunting and fishing license prices in the Southeast, as well as the country. In order to maintain programs and to meet the desires expressed by Georgia’s hunting and angling public, the Department of Natural Resources is proposing a hunting and fishing license restructure.

Georgia residents have not experienced a resident hunting and fishing license fee increase since 1992. The 1992 license fee increase was used to fund land acquisition efforts, as was the previous increase in 1987. The last hunting and fishing license fee increase made in support of agency operations occurred 34 years ago in 1981.

Since that time, DNR has greatly expanded its ownership and management of wildlife management areas (WMAs), public fishing areas (PFAs) and boating access sites while maintaining other key programs. Meanwhile, license revenues that fuel the agency’s core mission and function have remained stagnant for many years.

The Georgia DNR is requesting your input to develop a customer-supported fishing and hunting license restructure. Please plan to join us at one of the public meetings scheduled this June to learn more and share your thoughts. Meeting schedules, additional information and an online survey are available at: www.georgiawildlife.com/aimforsuccess.

We appreciate your support and look forward to your input!

The Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters All American Tournament Trail carried their show to Arkansas this past weekend. Crappie anglers from seven different states converged on Beaver Lake to see who could take home bragging rights, trophies and prize money. Clear water lakes like Beaver can often jinx anglers, but the pros were up to the task when fishing began on Saturday April 25, 2015. The event was what organizers call a one-day national qualifier, meaning the winners automatically qualify to fish the national championship later in the year.

Most competitors reported Pre fishing conditions tough. High winds and temperature changes kept anglers guessing on what the fish would want. As is usually the case after the pros have a couple days on the water a pattern was established and Beaver Lake gave up some impressive numbers.

Riddle and Maddux notch victory

The Johnson Fishing team of Jeff Riddle and David Maddux, came out on top with an impressive seven fish stringer totaling 9.62 pounds. The weight was enough to give them their first Crappie Masters victory. They established a pattern during the week, which held up on tournament day. Their success came by fishing 20 to 30 foot of water just off the bottom.

The team was using lemon/whiite Johnson Shad Tails fished on low pound clear Stren Line. They used Humminbird sonar with 360 imaging to help them spot fish. The team fished from a Ranger Boat with a Minn Kota Trolling Motor and used 16 foot B’n’M BGJP poles.

Riddle and Maddux took home $2650.00, which included a $250.00 bonus, donated by the Missouri Corn Growers Association and American Ethanol, for using E10 gasoline in their boat motor. The team is sponsored by Johnson Fishing, Stren, Humminbird, Minn Kota, Tite-Lok, and Slabber Dave’s Sporting Goods.

Locals Harp and Moten take second

The local team of Phillip Harp and Anthony Moten brought 9.55 pounds to the scales to claim the second place slot. The team fished in 9-foot waters and caught their crappie near the bottom. The team was spider rigging with double minnow rigs. They fished from a Tracker boat equipped with a Mercury Motor. Their other equipment included Humminbird Electronics and a Minn Kota Trolling Motor. Harp and Moten took home a check for $1200.00 as a payoff for their accomplishment.

Walker and Cross team up for third

Home field advantage played a role for the third place finishers also. The local team of Marvin Walker and Johnny Cross rounded out the top 3 places. They weighed a seven fish limit of 9.51pounds to claim their place. Walker and Cross caught their crappie in 20 to 25 foot of water with the fish suspended at about 15 feet. They were spider rigging with B’n’M Poles. They caught their fish on jigs and crank baits. The team is sponsored by Arkie Lures and received a check for $700.00.

Big fish honors captured by Keith and Bethell

The team of Kent Keith and Bob Bethell caught big Fish of the tournament. The1.79 pound crappie earned them $364.00. Second big fish honors went to Team Roper. Tommie and Jarad Roper brought in a 1.73 pound crappie to win a check for $156.

Bass Fishing – Knowing The Basics Of Bass Fishing

Posted on October 8, 2014. Filed under: Bass Fishing | Tags: , , , , , , , |

Bass Fishing is one of the most common types of fishing. Many bass fish are found in fresh water and salt water. They also move through lakes, ponds, reservoirs and streams. If you know the basics regarding conditions and places where bass are likely to be, you will have more success when you fish for bass.

Many variables change the location of bass, such as water conditions, water levels, weather, and light and food availability. There are three main elements that must be present in a body of water in order for bass to survive: Food, Oxygen, and Cover.

A bass’ favorite food is crawfish, which they prefer over shad. Basically, crawfish are usually more plentiful and they are easy for the Bass to catch. However, a bass will typically eat anything from rats, mice, ducklings, frogs, snakes, salamanders, worms, lizards, grubs, bait fish, insects, and leeches. Their ability to feast on one thing above another is why many people find such enjoyment from fishing bass.

Oxygen is another key component in finding bass fish. The basic rule of thumb is that the cooler the water, the more oxygen content. Therefore, if you are fishing in the spring, summer or early fall, you will find that the larger bass will drop down lower to find the cooler and more oxygen-filled water. They will also swim to find areas that are more concentrated in vegetation in order to find a better oxygen source. Trees, stumps, wind-blown banks, and power plants are all good sources of oxygen that will attract bass fish.

A bass relies on cover for a means of protection and way of ambush. Cover is part of a bass’ survival. The bass is known as a lazy fish, so they will hide and wait for their prey to come to them. The other reason for cover is that bass fish do not have eyelids and the cover is a way to prevent blindness. Some common cover areas to find bass in are around fabricated wood structures such as fence rows, docks, and pilings. They have been known to hide under floating pieces of wood or decaying wood. Weeds are the second best place to hunt for bass. Finally, rocks are the third place that bass will find cover. Rocks are not as reliable as weeds or wood, but sometimes a bass will find decaying pieces of food to feast on within some rocks. Remember that rocks do not produce oxygen, so the source is not as consistent.

When it comes to fishing, everyone has a different opinion. You will often find that these opinions range in location and source. However, there are some lures and baits that are recommended for bass fishing that may be useful if you haven’t tried them. Zoom Plastic Worms are recommended, as well as Crank Baits. Fly Flies are thought to be the best bait, and many will say that you don’t need big lures to attract big bass. Everyone will tell you to tie up to an embankment, or find a dock to get close to, but it is really an art that could take years to perfect.

Bass are notorious for slow moving and lack of distance in their movements. Logically, you could sit 30 feet from the biggest bass of your life, and he is not going to swim to your bait out of pure laziness. Finding the exact spot is difficult and a lot of fishing has to do with luck. The only part that you can control is finding the most likely places that a bass may be and exercise some patience. Weather is important to bass as well. If it is a cloudy day, you might have more luck than on a hot summer day. However, overcast is probably ideal for water temperatures, but then you have to decide what you are willing to sit through in order to catch a fish. The bottom line with bass fishing is you can only do your best with the knowledge at hand.
