Default Lake Lanier Fishing Report - 04-13-2011

Striper fishing is good. Not much has changed this week. The weather has been the key all week. We get on some good fish and a cold front will come through and mess up the fishing for a couple of days. There is an early morning bite on free line herring and planner boards pulled across points and flats. After about 9:00am start weighting your lines with split shots and move over deeper water. You should also hang a downrod over the side and adjust the depth as need. Without a well defined pattern the key is to "cover water" with herring on free lines and boards. The spots are biting and if you can catch them on a 1/2 oz. Captain's Macks bucktail. The spots will also "skin" your herring without you knowing. Keep an eye on your lines and check your baits often. The fish are scattered lake wide from the mouth of the creeks to all the way in the back. Some fish have even been caught over open water in front of Brown's Bridge and over deep water in the mouth of Flat. Mid lake seems to be best. Chestatee Bay, Flat Creek and Balus are good places to start. The mouth of Shoal, the Dam area and Baldridge are holding some fish. The North end creeks and the Rivers continue to be slow but should be catching fire any day.
