It's Swirleybird Time For Catching More Fish
12-Mar-12 - At Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee River during the Pre Spawn, Spawn, and Post Spawn season, we use a magical lure that allows us to catch a variety of fish and normally 40 to 80 fish each day. We call this period "Swirleybird Time" after the tiny lure that is so simple to fish that Ladies and Kids usually outfish the Pros! All anyone has to do is cast it out and swim it slowly to be very successful....pretty dumb, but it works fantastically! You can see all about it here: www.fishinglanier.com/Swirleybird.html We're already catching lots of Bass and other fish now, and it can last somtimes into June...Hope you all try the lure and the method for great catches this Spring!
