Go Deep to find Stripers in the Heat

Capt. Shane Watson

Lake Lanier - Freshwater Fishing Report

Since my last report, the striper fishing has been great on Lake Lanier most mornings and afternoons. Downlined bluebacks fishing 40 to 100 feet deep over a 100 to 120 foot bottom have worked well when the fish have been loaded up on your screen. Leadcore fished 9 colors out at 3 mph with a 1 oz chartreuse blue jig with a curly tail, has also worked very well. Mid-lake and south creeks from the mouths to the middle of the creeks have been good. We are also catching a good many quality stripers on leadcore out over the main river channel.
