2024 Fishing With The GM Schedule Announced
The Lodge on Lake Oconee is happy to announce our 2024 Fishing with the GM schedule. Both kids and adults can join General Manager Shawn Kosloff down at the docks of the hotel for a morning of fishing.
There is no cost for these events.
All participants will receive a certificate of achievement, promo codes for tackle discounts from various bait and tackle companies, and other giveaways (giveaways are based upon availability and may change from week to week).
It's hard to believe, but this will be our 4th season of our Fishing with the GM program. And believe it or not, during that time every single participant has caught at least one fish! No, we don't cheat. The secret is that we target bluegill with fresh red worms or nightcrawlers. But many participants also catch bass and catfish.
If you don't have your own rod and reel, that's no problem! We have rod and reel combos for everyone to use and we supply the bait.
If you're a more advanced angler, feel free to ask the GM and questions or provide a demonstration and instruction of bass fishing techniques. Techniques include skipping, pitching, flipping, and various retrieval methods. Mr. Kosloff is not only an avid angler, but he also fishes in the Bassmaster Kayak Series, the Bass Nation Kayak Series, the Major League Fishing Phoenix Series, and the Major League Fishing Toyota Series.
We usually fish from 8am until 10 am on Saturday mornings, but start and end times are subject to change. Please see the hotel events calendar for details.

BONUS EVENTS: Kayak Fishing with the GM
If you have your own kayak or rent one of our kayaks you can arrange to go Kayak Fishing with the GM. It is strongly suggested that only experienced kayakers participate in these trips as we will be covering 2-5 miles on the water. Please note that the GM utilizes an Old Town Sportsman kayak with a trolling motor. The hotel kayaks are paddle only.
If you wish to participate, please call the hotel and contact the GM at least one week prior to your arrival to see if the GM has an open time slot to fish with you on your desired date. There is no cost for this other than renting a kayak from the hotel if you don't have your own.
For this event, you must bring your own rod and reel and baits. The hotel does not supply those items and the GM does not loan equipment or baits.
