Lake Lanier - Oct. 10, 2012 Larry Freeman: Thanks for a great day of fishing. Anthony,Doug and I had a wonderful time Clay, you are very professional, patient and kind and really know where the Fish are down to a specific log or tree at 75 ft. We will be back and I wish you and your family well.

Lake Lanier - August 6, 2010 Mike Stephens - Buford, GA Went out with Capt. Larry on 8-6-10 and had a great time!  Wanted to learn all i could about striper fishing and Larry taught me more than i could of imagined.  I will definitely be a repeat customer come fall/winter when the techniques change to be schooled again.  Thanks for the great time and experience.

Lake Lanier - July 29, 2010 - Tre Spears - Gainesville, GA "Just wanted to tell you thanks for a wonderful day on Lanier!  My son is still wearing the grin on his face and wanted to know when we were going out with you again.  As my son put it, "Dad, Capt. Clay had patience and would answer any question I had.  He even let me net the fish."  He's use to my lack of patience.  Even after our time limit you continued without hesitation and produced five more fish.  I can't thank you enough for a great day!!  I will be scheduling another trip SOON!!!!"

Lake Lanier - June 12, 2010 - Willard & Brenda Perryman - Knoxville, Tennesee "We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the fishing trip. What a great morning on the lake. We really wanted the trip to be special and fun for our 3 grandchildren, and it sure was.  We certainly appreciated all the time, effort and patience you showed toward each one of them in helping them to land the fish.  All of us had a lot of fun. Thanks a lot.....and good fishing!

We hope you consider Catching Not Fishing for your fishing trip on Lake Lanier. There are many Lake Lanier Fishing Guides but we promise no one will work harder than us. Repeat business is the best business. This is what we strive for when we go fishing. Lake Lanier stripers are a hard fighting gamefish and we would like to be there when you or your family member hooks into the trophy striper they have been planning to catch. We hope to see you soon.
