In the spotlight this week was BGS’s own Louie Bartenfield joining up with Kim and Danny Stricker of the Hook n’ Look crew, to shoot an episode on Carter’s Lake right here in Georgia. The guys had an excellent few days fishing and filming on the water, and the footage obtained is certain to make for a very entertaining and informative show.
Imagine you are going to be put in front of a camera, to be watched by thousands of people, and asked to demonstrate to a celebrity host that you can catch fish ….but are only given one lure to do it! These are the circumstances Louie faced when Kim asked him to feature Strike King’s new Sexy Dawg top-water bait.
When Joe Thomas asked Louie Bartenfield (LB) when the best time of year was to get a 5 lb spot, he said “December”. We have been waiting 9 months for Joe to come back, after having shot an excellent episode of Stihl’s Reel in the Outdoors last March. On Joe’s visit this week, he and Louie concentrated on bluff banks using the float-n-fly, jerkbaits, and deep swimming lures to pull up some really good fish. We won’t spoil the show, but we will tell you this: Joe got what he asked for!
Coming up on Friday, July 22nd, and Saturday July 23rd is the Athens Banner Herald / Sportsman Living Outdoor Show at the Classic Center in Athens, Georgia. This show will feature 40-50 vendors in nearly 28,000 square feet of exhibition space covering hunting, fishing, archery, shooting, boating, and the great outdoors.
The episode of Still’s Reel in the Outdoors with Joe Thomas that was filmed on Carter’s Lake with Louie Bartenfield earlier this year is set to air later this month. You don’t want to miss this show, as Joe and LB get after some BIG Carter’s Lake Spots on spinnerbaits at short range and EXTREMELY shallow water. Don't miss it!
