3-22-11 Lake Lanier Fishing Report

Written by jeffblair on March 22, 2011

Water temps are in the high 50s and the striper fishing has been getting better every day. We have been catching most our fish on freelined bluebacks and little gizzard shad in the backs of the northern creeks. As the water temp rises these fish will start wanting a bigger shad or trout. Right now I can get them to come up to bigger bait but they just will not eat. The night time bomber bite has been in full swing for a couple weeks. Good numbers and quite a few big fish have been caught at night using Long A Bombers, McSticks, X Raps casting them up in shallow water and slowly reeling them back.
Crappie fishing has been great. There are a good number of fish on the docks but this past week the size has went way down. Still catching most of them on Capt Macks 1/32oz Popeye jigs or Hal Flies but you can’t go wrong with a minnow under a cork. The bigger crappie have moved in the backs of the creeks in shallow water. You can catch these by putting a jig a couple feet under a cork and slowly reel it back to the boat. Pages:
