Lake Lanier Fishing Charter

The last few weeks have been great fishing on Lake Lanier. Look for these fish to start moving up shower over the next week or two. We have seen some topwater action the last couple of days. Look for these fish to start moving up the river Channel over the next couple of weeks has the water temperatures cool towards the low 70s 60s.

Lake Lanier Fishing Guides Report

The Striped Bass bite is still on fire on the south end of Lake Lanier. These fish are biting free lines and down lines. Most of these fish seem to be congregated over the South portions of the lake. Look for fish on the fish finder / heavy Timber try dropping down lines 28 to 35 ft. We have been catching quite a few fish on a captain Max Bucktail jig power reeled up through the timber. Free lines have been very effective some days. Try using a split shot on your free lines. This allows the bait to get down a little deeper but not as deep as a downline. Good luck!

Bass
The bass fishing has been a little tough the last few days. With the cooler air temps it seems like most of the bigger fish are deep. We have been catching some Spotted Bass on Drop Shot over a 28 to 30 ft bottom close to brush and rock ledges. Try using a small Fluke Jr on a drop shot right working these areas slowly. We have also caught a few fish drop shotting Bass Shinnners.
Brown Trout
The trout bite has picked up the last few days. With all the recent rains these fish have been feeding on top when we have cloud cover. We have been casting a Kastmaster spoon for these surfacing fish. Be prepared to hook into some heavy fish! Try letting the spoon sink for a couple of seconds then a slow jerking retrieve back towards the boat. We have also been catching a few Brown Trout free lining Blue Back Herring. Try letting the baits out 60 to 80 ft behind the boat. We like to maintain a speed of .8 to 1mph. This keeps the baits strait and allows them to dive a little. Look for this pattern to continue and the fish to start feeding more hours during the day.
Walleye
The Walleye should start moving up shallower as the water cools over the next couple weeks. Most of these fish have been hanging out on a 40 to 60 ft bottom and are hard to catch during the summer months. The trolling should start up as the water temps near the 60 deg mark.
Good Luck!

Lake Chatuge Fishing

Lake Chatuge Fishing Guides
The Hybrid Bass bite has been unreal lately on Lake Chatuge. We have been catching these fish over a 30 to 40ft bottom. Spoons have been the ticket lately. Use a fast jig retrieve up and down in the water column. Lake Chatuge located in Hiawasse Ga is absolutely breathtaking if you have never ventured out on it. Come join us for a Lake Chatuge Fishing Excursion!

Lake Lanier Fishing

The South Lake Lanier bite is on fire right now. The Striped Bass are in bigger schools now that the water temps have risen into the mid to upper 80’s. We have caught some really nice Stripes on Parker spoons lately. The Lanier Spotted Bass have been eating the spoon on the surface. We have been using a fast surface type retrieve when catching the Bass.
Good luck!
