GEORGIA: Lake Lanier – Leadhead Flukes and Bucktail Jigs are Working

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Since my last report the striper fishing on Lake Lanier hasn’t changed much.

The fish are still surfacing most mornings before the passing of a cold front and you can catch stripers on freelined and planerboard trout, and bluebacks. Leadhead flukes and bucktail jigs are also working on these rolling fish. We have also done well trolling Capt. Mack’s 3 arm u-rigs thru the diving birds and rolling fish.

There has also been a decent spoon bite. There are groups of stripers scattered both north and south, also in the popular mid-lake creeks. We are catching fish around diving seagulls with and without loons. Downlined trout are producing best when the fish are down 30 to 80 feet deep. Overall, the striper fishing remains about the same. It’s been good most days, but with these passing wintertime cold fronts, the stripers might be up on the bank rolling one day and 80 feet deep on a downline the next.

Good Fishing and We Appreciate Your Business.
