Water Temp – 85 degrees
Water Level – .9 feet above full pool (and rising!)
Hey gang – its great to be back from vacation and back on Lanier. Things are really changing now with all the recent rain and much more to come as of the current forecast. The lake is rising and currently sits at .9 feet over full pool with surface temps around 85 degrees. I am sure we are in for some stained to muddy water conditions in the creeks and rivers with all the precipitation.
What is happening out there…
The bite since my return on Monday of this week has been interesting. We have had some very good periods of activity, along with some much slower periods as well. Best overall for us this week has been the drop shot. We have been drop shotting fruity worms as well as other roboworm selections in the 30 feet range on humps and points for the best results. We have had some big fish as well during this period – make sure to follow me at Jimbo On Lanier on FB for all the latest results and pictures. The Spybait bite has been on and off for us, but remains viable as always. If you see the fish suspended up in the water column, the spybait should be the ticket. I am also still running some bait trips – we have been able to find the spottails at times, and we are also having success with the large minnows from Hammonds as well.

What color spy baits should I be spending money on. I don’t want a bunch to choose from. I am learning crank bait and really don’t want to spend a lot of money till I get the hang of using them.
Hi Ray – thanks for your question. As far as spy baits, i would recommend the duo realis gfix 80 or 90, and I would get them in a sexy shad pattern for cloudy days, and some kind of blueish/clearish color for when the sun is up – something that is more translucent when the sun is out, and something with more solid colors for cloudy or low light conditions, and that’s really all you need. I hope that helps and thanks!
