Generally if I like you, you can just pay me in enjoyable conversation whilst fishing. Maybe a sausage egg and cheese on the way up, and you gotta bring the six pack lol.

Strawberry is also an option.

If we are going orange it has to be Orange Crush though.

It's right outside a town called "warm springs" so I don't know about that

Funny you mention that. I am looking for the weblink I found but it lists every major spring in Georgia. Breaks it down by region and we looked specifically at this area to look at water temps for this reason. Some of the springs on the property for Callaway were consistently mid to low 60's. Warm springs is just that, a warm spring. It stayed closer to the upper 80's. I will see if I can find that webpage so you can paruse the data.

Default The Old NGTO Club Special

I checked my old emails and found the last time that we fished Callaway using the "NGTO Club Special" was back in 2013. If I remember correctly, it was $300 for five to fish the day. They would provide one guide, who chaperoned the group between the different lakes and ended-up fishing with us.

On that 2013 trip they let us bring our kayaks, instead of using those inflatable float seats with fins. It was a blast, we covered a lot of water in the kayaks. We caught dozens of those famous 14" bream/shellcrackers on Rubber Legged Dragons (RLDs) with our fly rods.

I have also fished the stocked trout there, I believe it was $299 for two anglers and the guide rowed the drift boat for us in the different lakes.

We fished Callaway each year from between 2009-2013 (usually with Kent Edmonds as our guide) and saw the fish and fishing decline a little bit more each year. Not sure what the deal was, I guess the way the lakes were managed.

But what a beautiful place and what a fishery it was in it's heyday!

The old deal was that you had to pay for your trip before the end of January and book the trip whenever you wanted before the year-end. I believe it was their way of booking some sales in the slowest part of the season. I'll try to give them a call this week and see if there is any way to bring back the old NGTO deal.

Fish finder and your choice of bait or spoon

Speaking of Callaway Gardens, where can you catch shoal bass around there?
