Here are the dates I have open in June: 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30.  The fishing on Lake Lanier has been fair this past week. There is no question that the fish are in their post-spawn “funk”.  The stripers have certainly been willing to cooperate several of the past mornings however.  The morning bite for spots and stripers has been good on some days with a variety of baits to include: jerkbait, swimbait, topwater, spinnerbait, and a fluke. The focus with these baits should be fairly shallow on flats and shallower rocky points and humps as well. The fish continue to move deeper each day as they make their way out to the summer brush locations. When the fun stuff bite slows down, switch to a worm on a 3/16 oz Davis Shaky Head and work it slow. A Chattahoochee jig has came on strong this week as well.  Experiment with the different baits to figure out which the fish prefer that day. Focus on main lake rocky points and on secondary points as well.  As we have seen this week and as I noted above, the post spawners are often lethargic and will be for a couple of weeks.  Slow down when the bite is tough and go to the worm or jig as discussed above. A fluke is often a good choice on these less aggressive fish also. Look for the traditional post-spawn topwater bite over the brush to start in the next week to 10 days.  This will be a fantastic bite and not one to be missed.  I only have a few days left in June, so be sure not to miss out on this bite!  Here is what I have open in June: 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 28, 29, 30.  Give me a call and let’s go fishing! Thanks to all and May God Bless.
