Shane Watson Guide Service Report, 7-07-10 thru 7-20-10. The striper fishing remains strong most days on Lake Lanier. Our boats have been out everyday on both morning and afternoon trips. Freshly changed, quality live bluebacks on a downline are working best. Fish your bluebacks 30 to 40 feet deep over a 35 to 80 foot bottom in the mouths of creeks and just off the main channel. There are fish starting to show up in decent numbers out over the main river channel, but we are a couple of weeks or so away from this pattern. Leadcore is producing a few daily. We are seeing some great top water fishing on a Spro Dawg and on a Spook on points and humps after the sun gets up high. I haven’t seen this good a late morning, summertime top water bite since years 2001 – 2002. Overall, the striper fishing is strong on Lake Lanier if you are on active fish.

We’ve caught stripers up to 35 pounds on downlined bluebacks fished 25 to 40 feet deep over a 35 to 70 foot bottom just off points and humps. Some of our boats are still catching a few fish early on a freeline, on a Spro Dawg, a Super Spook, and on a Redfin and then switching over to a downline.

Jerk Baits for Big Stripers

The stripers have been on fire the last couple of days. Our boats have caught stripers up to 30 pounds this week on Spro McStick Jerk Baits in spooky shad pattern and on freelined bluebacks. Fish points in the middle to the rear of just about any creek. The north and southend are equal right now. The water temps that I saw today were 50-53 degrees. The store is getting in a shipment of the spooky shad McSticks in the morning. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service www.lakelanierstripers.com and Hammond’s Fishing Center.

February 2010 Fishing Report

The stripers have been up boiling on the surface most every morning since my last report. We’ve caught all of our fish on freelined medium shiners, white Fat Albert grubs on a leadhead, and on white bucktails with a white hyper striper tail. These fish have been boiling on the surface and sub-surface about a foot under the water. Sometimes you will see a big visible swirl, sometimes it will be a slight boil as the fish are not always making it to the top. They are feeding on small shad, that are trying to come to the surface before dieing. Slick calm pockets in the middle to the rear of creeks are where we are seeing most of these fish. The seagulls are more of a distraction right now than anything else, as they are picking up random shad kill. You will see them everywhere picking up single baits and flying on. You want to see them pounding the water, hovering, and staying in a tight group. This is when they have fish under them. Most of the single boiling fish that we are catching have no birds with them. The store got in a big load of medium shiners this morning and they also have all the jigs and white grubs that you will need for casting.

We’ve had some great jig fishing at times. We’ve also had some great freelining when the fish have been active and up in the water column. These patterns have worked best early morning and late afternoon before the passing of a cold front. After a front passes or if the fish are down, shad body umbrella rigs are your best bet. There a lot of birds mid-lake and south, some on the main lake and some in the creeks. Keep moving until you find some active fish or active seagulls with and without loons for better numbers. If you can’t find any active fish or birds, pull your freelines around the bank and cast a white leadhead fluke or a white 3/8 or 1/2 oz bucktail, to as many points, banks, and boat docks as you can. Don’t be afraid to cast up into a foot or two of water. There are some big, loner stripers to be caught on a jig right now that are up cruising the bank. Use a white fluke trailer, a white hyper striper tail, or a white Fat Albert grub on your bucktail for best results. Most of the time, you won’t see these big fish rolling, you want even know they are there until they slam your jig.
