Lake Lanier Guide Honored with Hall of Fame Designation

On January 12, 2010, Lake Lanier fishing guide Shane Watson was inducted into The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame for the year 2010 as a Legendary Guide.

This is a prestigious honor as only 56 people have been recognized as a Legendary Guide since 1992. There are only 2 to 3 people inducted each year worldwide. I

Inductees are selected by a national committee of peers including Legendary Fisherman Forrest Wood. Inductees are selected for their contribution, dedication, and service to the fresh water sport fishing industry.

A statement from The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame reads, by induction to the Hall, Shane Watson’s pioneering spirit will always be remembered. The Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame is located in Hayward Wisconsin.
