Here is what I have remaining open for April: 7, 9,11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 26, 27. The fishing on Lake Lanier remains good. The weather has stabalized a bit this week which has made it easier to pattern the fish in general. A spinnerbait has been our first choice in the mornings. The focus with these baits should be fairly shallow on flats in pockets and in the backs of creeks, as well as shallower rocky points and humps, both in creeks and on the main lake. When the spinnerbait bite slows down, switch to a worm and a Chattahoochee jig in these same places. Toss these around points at the mouths of spawning pockets and on secondary points as well. A drop shot rig with a 4″ worm cast to steep rock banks and points has been productive this past week. Work the rig like a shaky head and watch for light bites. A fluke bite has also emerged this week as expected. Shallow wood such as blowdowns have been the best target for these baits. Work the fluke slowly with a couple of twitches followed by 2-3 second pauses. The dock bite is still there and dependable on most sunny days. Skip a worm or a creepy crawler on a jig head, or a weightless senko, around and under docks in 10-20 feet of water when the sun is up. Docks represent a classic staging area for the fish on Lanier. We have already seen several fish up shallow cruising and hanging around the docks. Shallower, long running flat points are starting to hold fish as well. Often these fish can be found in the 10-15 foot depth ranges on top of these points. Work a Chattahoochee Jig or shaky head worm slowly on these areas. A jerkbait has been productive on these shallower rocky points as well, especially for some bigger fish. Again, other than early morning, wind is important for this bite. The Largemouth are up shallow all around the lake. Look in the backs of creeks and pockets to find these critters. Docks in these areas are a good bet for these fish. A number of lures can work depending on the conditions, but all the normal fare are good choices. Here is what I have remaining open – April: 7, 9,11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 26, 27. The best is yet to come with the bite this spring! Don’t miss out! Give me a call and let’s go fishing! Thanks to all and May God Bless!
