Art Redding has been fishing since he was able to walk. Fishing is definitely in his blood. He has been guiding at Live Oak Plantation for about 3 years and has loved every minute of it. When you visit out here, you will understand why. He usually starts his morning around 6:00-6:30. He arrives at the lodge to pick up his clients that he is taking out. They launch the boat in the water and put the trolling motor down and begin to hunt for the big ones and try not to stop until they have one or 50 in the boat. Some days are tough, that's just fishing.

“I like to start out using ultra vibe speed worms, suspended jerk bait, rattletrap, crankbait, Pop R and a whopper plopper,” said Art. “These baits seem to work well out here and the bass love them. If you're not from Georgia and you come to visit, you will surely be impressed by some of the best southern hospitality and food.”

They look forward to lunchtime! “I do this because fishing is a passion of mine, but also meeting new people from all over who enjoy doing the same thing as me is very rewarding. I love when people have a good time and catch fish. Afterall, that's what it's all about,” said Art.
