July 2012 Lake Lanier Striper Fishing Report

Capt. Ron Mullins
July 15, 2012
Lake Lanier - Freshwater Fishing Report

Lake Lanier water temps are now in the mid 80's and the trolling bite is in full swing. The stripers have moved to the south end of the lake where there is a better mix of water. The fish are spread out around the south end, so be patient and be prepared troll around. Trolling with leadcore has been my best bet. A Captain Mack's 1 oz Chipmunk Jig in chartreuse/blue or white/chartreuse with either a chartreuse or blue U Tail trailer has worked well. If these combos don't work, don't be afraid to change the size of the jig or even change the trailer to a live herring. Once you locate a school of fish then you can drop live herring on downlines to them. If you see the stripers "shopping" your baits you might want to downsize your hook or even your leader. The best bite has been when the sun is up and there are no clouds.
