Game time with Weidler

Lake Lanier is deep and clear, and during the winter months the spotted bass focus on deep structure. That makes electronics critical to success.

Alabama pro Bill Weidler is a fantastic spotted bass angler, having grown up fishing the Coosa River lakes like Lay and Logan Martin.

He understands the vertical game.

In fact, the slang term for this technique is called “gaming.” This week you’ll see most of the pros with a spinning rod in their hands, and heads down studying they’re graphs.

It may seem monotonous or slow, but come weigh-in time, the results will speak for themselves.

Weidler is still looking for his first bass of the event—soon.
