Here are the dates I have left open in June: 21, 22, 28, 29, 30.  Don’t miss Topwater Time on Lake Lanier! Give me a call and let’s get out there! The fishing on Lake Lanier has been good this past week, although I was out of town for the Memorial Day holiday – too many crazies out there to fish!  I made my way back to the Indy 500 over Memorial Day and took all three of my daughters to their first race!!  We had a blast as a family and really enjoyed the 100th running of this historic event.  The Greatest Spectacle in Racing!  I fished last Thursday morning, and then Wednesday through Saturday this week.  The fish are in still in their post-spawn “funk”, but they are starting to recover and getting more active at times. The early morning bite for spots and stripers has been good with a variety of baits to include a swimbait and a topwater such as a sebile, or a chug bug and a gunfish.  We have been working shallow humps and points with access to deep water.  Fish are typically around areas with brush, but not always. The fish continue to move deeper each day as they make their way out to the summer brush locations. We are starting to see a lot of schooling fish in the early mornings over various types of structures, such as humps and road beds, with some of the activity being over deep water.  Catching these fish, which are often big ones, requires a precise cast to the area of activity.  Set up your rigs to make long casts to be ready for these situations. 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 continued to perform well also.  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.  The brush is starting to hold fish all around the lake, and soon they will mainly be found on the man-made brush.  Remember that the post spawners are often lethargic and will be for another few days.  Slow down when the bite is tough and go to the worm, jig, or dropshot as discussed above. A fluke is often a good choice on these less aggressive fish also.  The full blown all day top water bite is just days away. 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 the fun!  Here is what I have open in June: 21,22, 28, 29, 30.  Give me a call and let’s go fishing! Thanks to all and May God Bless.
