Default Lake Lanier Fishing Report - 04-27-2011

Striper fishing is good. Not a lot has changed this week. The weather continues to be the key. Storms, high winds and cold fronts continue to make fishing challenging. There is an early morning bite with some quality fish being caught. The numbers of fish being caught is improving and if the weather holds the fishing should "fire up" this week. Flat line herring 80 - 100 feet back with planner boards at 50 feet back continues to be the best bet. After about 9:00am start weighting your lines with split shots and move over deeper water. A large Gizzard on a balloon about 150 feet back is always a good idea. You should also hang a downrod over the side and adjust the depth as needed. With the increase in water temperature, the top water bite should kick in any day. It's time to tie on a Red Fin, Chug Bug or Spook and spend a little time throwing to points. The fish are starting to move out of the backs of the creeks and will start to move up on points from half-way to the mouth of the creeks. The spots are biting and can keep your grandchildren busy during the slow periods. They will also "skin" your herring without you knowing. Keep an eye on your lines and check your baits often. I pulled Umbrella rigs again this week without any success. The fish are scattered lake wide from the mouth of the creeks to half way back. The North end has improved with a few fish being caught in Sardis, Ada and Gainesville creeks. Chestatee Bay, Flat Creek, Balus, Six Mile and Two Mile creeks are also good places to start. Baldridge, Shoal and Flowery Branch have been slow this week.

Time to get the kids fishing!
