Catching Not Fishing
Lake Lanier Fishing Report

Lanier Report – Thanksgiving Outlook

It comes as a surprise to most of our customers that the day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day of the year. All of the wives are out shopping and the men go fishing. Therefore, a common question for us is the outlook for the fishing of Thanksgiving week. Traditionally, Thanksgiving week is very good for us. The topwater bite that can be unpredictable gives way to the fish getting deeper and more reliable on the downline using rainbow trout for bait. This year is shaping up to be the same. Most of our fish are already coming on the downline with a few big fish early on freelines and planer boards. We hope to see you guys this week. If any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We plan to fish all hours except for the day of Thanksgiving. If you want to go the day after Thanksgiving, be sure to give us a call as soon as possible.
