Early in life it was mostly crappie and bream from the bank but once able to drive he was able to head to the lake at all times. After receiving his Bachelor's Degree from North Georgia College & State University. Captain Clay decided to pursue his dream as a guide on Lake Lanier. Now over twelve years later, Captain Clay is glad to be able to fish on Lake Lanier over 250 days a year for stripers. Capt. Clay is one of the few guides that are actively U.S.C.G. licensed.  When not fishing, Clay enjoys spending time with his wife Carmen and two kids Cydney and Carter.

Brian Nyswaner

Lake Lanier Guide BrianBrian Nyswaner has been fishing on Lake Lanier over the last two decades and has been guiding on Lake Lanier most of the last decade. Some of you will recognize him from working out of some of the old bait shops on the west side of the lake. If you see a yellow Triton bay boat with no stickers on it catching fish away from all the other boats you have found him. Brian graduated from the University of Georgia so you may not want to wear orange or a few other known colors.
