More About Emil

Emil is a lifelong resident of Georgia and has fished Lake Lanier for coming on 10 years now. Lake Lanier is known for its trophy spotted bass and is arguably the best spotted bass fishery in the country. He also guides on lake Allatoona, which is a great fishery to catch numbers of bass, as well as lake Hartwell, which offers a nice variety - as well as a substantial population of largemouth bass. When you book a trip with Emil, expect to not only catch fish, but to learn a lot about how to have a successful day on the water and locate fish on whichever respective body of water you are on.
