Lake Sidney Lanier Striper Fishing Report 05/23/2012
The most up to date Lake Lanier Striper Fishing Report on the web!!
Striper fishing is good. Memorial Day is here, lake traffic has significantly increased and the lake is setting up for the summer time pattern. The fish are on the move and staging on main lake and creek mouth points. Focus on points that are close to high concentrations of
bait and near creek and river channel bends. Down rods at 20 to 30 feet over a 30 to 50 foot bottom has been the ticket this week. You can still find a few fish catchable fish up shallow on points that will eat a buck tail or Red Fin early. Pitching a Herring on a
spinning rod with 10lb test line will keep you busy catching spots and small stripers in the early morning hours. Once the sun comes up go to the down rods and move to deeper water. The Umbrella rig bite has picked up but running and gunning points with down
rods has been the most productive technique. There are fish lake wide in the mouth of the creeks and the river channel. I have been focusing on points from Gainesville Marina to Flat Creek but there are fish being caught in Wahoo, Little River and Six mile creek.
Capt. Mike took a week off and went to TN to have some fun fishing with friends, we got some nice fish!
