Lake Lanier - Freshwater Fishing Report
October is one of our transition months here on Lake Lanier. One day you might have a great top water bite going on all around you and the next it is back to down lines in 100 feet of water. The fish are on the move and can be found from one end of the lake to the other.
There has been some decent top water activity from Flowery Branch to the dam over the last three weeks which has been a lot of fun. The schools have been coming up for very short periods of time so you have to stay vigilant and watch for any activity and move quickly to get to the school before they go down. These fish are very aggressive and if you get there in time will bite just about any plug that you throw to them. I have been throwing a ½ oz. Capt Mack's Super Jig with a fluke style trailer and letting it sink just a bit before working it back to the boat. Lots of fish have been in deep open water, but there have also been quite a few in 30' or less on points and humps. These fish have very susceptible to a herring pitched on a medium action spinning rod (rigged with 20# Hi Seas Grand Slam or new Quattro braid), top water baits, or by pulling a Capt Mack's U-Rig anywhere from 100' to 130' behind the boat.
