Lake Varner 5-Bass Limit Tops 45 Pounds, Including 12-Pounder
Mike Meason, of McDonough, is a serious jonboat tournament angler, but on April 11, 2005 he went fun fishing to his favorite reservoir — Lake Varner in Covington. His day of on the water produced possible the best Georgia public-lake fishing results that GON has ever heard about.
Mike boated five fish over 8 pounds, including a giant that weighed 12-lbs., 6-ozs. That fish is pictured here.
“I’ve never had a fish mounted, but that girl is going to the taxidermist,” said Mike. “My best five fish that day would have gone somewhere between 45 and 48 pounds.”
“All of the fish were on the bed, and I used a white tube to catch them,” said Mike. “After I caught the 12-pounder, I broke another off that was easily 10 pounds.”
Mike was featured in a Lake Varner bass story in the March 2005 issue of GON.
