Bass fishing is fair. The water temperature has dropped significantly over the last couple of weeks but has stabilized in the recent days. There continue to be many options from which to choose out there right now. You can catch fish from 2 to 50 feet deep and you can also catch them in a number of different places. There are still fish on some of the brush (particularly near the creek channels), and there are fish on rock, on points, and they are starting to show up more in the creek arm ditches and the backs of creeks as well. Here is a list of some of the baits we have been using over the last week to catch good fish: crank baits, Davis Shaky Head, Chattahoochee jig, along with a fish head spin. In the last few days, we have been starting fairly shallow, and then experimenting from there. Some days we fish deep, and others we stay shallow. It just depends on the day and conditions. As always, it is important to stay flexible, as the fish on Lanier change daily. Keep an open mind about where and how to fish. This is a great time to learn how to fish the late fall/winter transition period on Lake Lanier and remain successful. The best thing about taking a trip this time of year is learning and understanding how to make productive decisions in the face of changing conditions and fish attitude. I have the following dates open next week: 10, 11, 12, and 13. Give me a call and reserve your date NOW! For fishing reports on other Georgia lakes, please visit: www.southernfishing.com
This Striper report is from Captain Ken West and Captain Mike Maddalena of Big Fish On Service 404 561 2564. www.bigfishon .com
Striper fishing is good. The lake has cooled to the high 50's and the Stripers are aggressively feeding. Locating large concentrations of bait and working birds has been the ticket. When you see birds diving on bait being pushed to the surface by feeding fish, resist the temptation to go roaring over with the big motor you will just spook the fish. Instead move in with your trolling motor while casting a 3/8 to 1/2 ounce buck tail jig with a small fluke trailer. Another approach is to put a medium shiner on a line with a #4 hook and a weighted bobber and cast to the feeding fish. You can also pitch a Herring with a number 1 or 1/0 hook.
