Look for Stripers Busting on the Surface

Capt. Shane Watson
October 22, 2015
Lake Lanier - Freshwater Fishing Report

Look for busting stripers and spots from Chestatee Bay down to the Dam. We have seen them busting on the surface out on the main lake and in the mouths to the middle of south end creeks. Mornings and afternoons have been about the same. Cast Spro Dawg's, Sebile's, Redfins, Spooks, flukes, bucktails, and Sammie's to these surfacing fish. Expect a mix of stripers and spots on free lines for the rest of the year when the fish are up shallow. If you can't find them on top, you will need to fish down line blue backs 40 to 80 feet deep, on the main lake and in the mouths of creeks. Some days they will be busting on the surface in many places and some days the stripers will be 80 to 90 feet deep, but still catchable on down lines. That's just the nature of it this time of the year. Capt. Mack's u-rigs are also a good choice. There is nothing like seeing half an acre of stripers busting on the surface. We've also caught and released some really big spotted bass that are mixed in with these surfacing stripers.
