Fishing has really awakened on Lake Lanier the past few days for stripers. The stripers are feeding in fairly large packs and eating almost solely on herring. The water temperature has heated up to about 58 degrees, the weather has turned incredible, the lake is full, and life is good. Overall for this time of year we can not hope for it to be any better than it is right now. Some days can still be tough but most days the fishing has been very good. We are pulling freelines and planer boards with the trolling motor.
The crappie fishing on the other hand has been more difficult than expected with the rise in water temperature. ANy day now the fish should really make the move shallow but from what we have been hearing it has just not happened yet. Over the coming week, the crappie should really make the move shallow and be the best fishing of the year to catch them with the kids with bobbers and minnows up in shallow brush. Hope to see you out on the water,
