Lake Sidney Lanier Striper Fishing Report 06/13/2012
The most up to date Lake Lanier Striper Fishing Report on the web!!
Striper fishing is good. The fish continue move and are a challenge to find. There does not seem to be a pattern in terms of location. They are on points, humps, flats and pockets but you seldom find them in the same place two days in a row. The only consistency is the fish
are shallow and you should focus on less than 40 foot bottoms and areas where there is a lot of bait. Do not put your free lines up. This week I caught more fish on weighted free lines 65 to 100 feet back. than down rods. However, I do not expect that to last. The Umbrella rig bite has picked up. I am using a 4 arm 3oz rig with nine 1oz. Captain Mack bucktail jigs with 4 inch white and chartreuse shad bodies. Pull between 3.3 and 3.8 mph
with rigs 70 to 100 feet behind the boat depending on target depth. The north end of the Lake continues to be the most productive. Start at Browns bridge and work your way North.
