  • Lake Lanier Fishing Report - GA

    LAKE LANIER IS FULL POOL THE MAIN LAKE AND CREEKS ARE STAINED & 50S


    This report brought to you by: Jimbo Mathley www.jimboonlanier.com 770 542 7764


    Currently the lake stands at .2 feet below full pool, and the surface temps have dropped to 50 degrees with the recent cold snap. The backs of the major creeks and creek arms are still stained in places.


    Bass fishing has been steady. Both shallow and deep remain options given the recent warm weather. The warm weather followed by the intermittent cold fronts reposition the fish regularly, making the establishment of a pattern a challenge. Remain flexible as you search for viable daily patterns. Deep and Shallow are both valid options on any given day. The rock fish we found this week have been shallow on steeper rock areas. The ditches are still holding fish and they are catchable on some days shallow and also deep. Crank baits, jerk baits, under spins, Damiki rigs, jigs, swim baits and shaky heads are all still viable options for both the rock fish and the ditch fish. The message is that there are many different options and bait choices out there to target these fish located in a myriad of places. Stay flexible and versatile in your approach. Look for the presence of bait in the area you are fishing no bait likely equals no fish this time of year.

    Want more detailed information on the bite this week including a detailed breakdown of the fantastic day on the water we had on 1/23/2020? Subscribe to my weekly video fishing reports here: https://jimboonlanier.com/jimbos-wee...shing-reports/ Here are my available January Dates: 27, 28, 30, and 31(AM). January is a great opportunity to learn the deep winter patterns including timber fishing and ditch fishing, and figuring out where they go when they do go shallow! Give me a call and let's fish!


    This Lake Lanier Striper report is by Captain Buck Cannon of Buck Tails Guide Service Buck Tales Guide Service 404 510 1778


    Stripers fishing has been good. Find them in Little River, Laurel Park and Wahoo Creek and you can catch them under the birds. First consistent top water bite in a while. Stripers are growing too. We caught double digits and a lot were 10+ and a few 15ís. Down lines blue backs in the 30 to 35 feet deep. Trolling works but if youíre chasing the birds donít pull up and just rabbit to them. Change baits then and they will hit the bait that you pulled. We have had 4 stripers on at one time. Pull Mini Macs and umbrella rigs when the wind picks up. Mini macs 150 feet and umbrella rigs 120 feet back using the big motor around 3 mph. Remember Buck Tales, 404 510 1778
