Narrator: On this week’s Bob Redfern’s Outdoor Magazine, Bob heads to North Carolina to smallmouth bass fish on Lake James. Joining Bob will be as go-to guide in the state of North Carolina, Captain Craig Price, with Fish On! Guide Service.
In New Hampshire, all bass must be released from May 15 through June 15, a good rule since that’s the peak of smallmouth bedding activity. But catch-and-release fishing during those four weeks is lawful, and for dedicated bass anglers there are few places on the planet better than central New Hampshire’s 45,000-acre Lake Winnipesaukee when love-sick spawning bass move onto gravel-bottom bars, coves and flats.
During good, calm, warm weather, it’s common for a pair of bed fishing smallmouth anglers to catch and release 50 fish weighing 2 to 4 pounds, and catching twice that number in a day is possible. It’s all sight fishing for bedding “Winni” bronzebacks, so polarized sunglasses and a brimmed cap are imperative equipment. Light spinning tackle, 6-pound test line, with stand-up 1/8-ounce jigs and soft plastic pumpkinseed lizards are deadly.
In addition to smallmouths, Winnipesaukee has a surprisingly good largemouth bass fishery. Smallmouths are much more numerous, but largemouths to 8 pounds have been recorded from “Winni.” Fishing continues good through the summer, too.
Motels, restaurants and marinas abound, click here for more information.

Shenandoah Plantation is located in the heart of the famous Alabama Blackbelt, just West of Union Springs, Alabama. Herb Holmes, a famous bird dog trainer, used the property as training grounds for his bird dog training operation. Union Springs is considered the Field Trial capital of the world and is famous in its own right for world class birddogs and quail hunting. In 1991 the training grounds were purchased and developed into what became known as Shenandoah Plantation by a gentleman named Fred Rowen. Fred enlisted the help of Herb Holmes to help design and build the facilities which included the main house, a small 2 bedroom guest house, 3 lakes, horse barn, dog kennel, tennis court and flight pen. This is when the property first became known as Shenandoah Plantation.
Tom Lanier and his wife, Sue Ellen purchased the plantation from Fred in May of 2000. Tom and his staff continued the extensive wildlife management programs that Fred started and managed for the previous nine years. The programs included managing the Trophy Bass lakes, Trophy Deer herd and enhancement of the other wildlife that live on and use the property. The lakes are considered some of the finest trophy bass lakes in the area. During the first five years of their ownership of the plantation, Tom and Sue Ellen used the facilities for the private enjoyment of their family and friends. They eventually began offering some commercial quail hunting at the request of a friend who wanted to entertain his clients at Shenandoah. Tom and Sue Ellen added a state of the art 5 stand skeet facility, Continental (tower) Pheasant course, a 4 bedroom guest house and other amenities during their ownership. The Lanier’s now operate an exceptional, first-class, commercial hunting and fishing property that offers an extraordinary hunting and fishing experience to its guests.
Shenandoah’s address is 1193 Wildlife Trail, Union Springs, Alabama. Wildlife Trail is located on US HWY 82 about 6 miles West of Union Springs, Alabama between mile markers 192 and 193.
