The fishing on Lake Lanier this past week has been excellent.

Here is what I have remaining open in April: 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 26, 27. The spots are on fire! Don’t miss out! Give me a call and let’s go fishing!

A wake bait has been our first choice in the mornings. The focus with these baits should be fairly shallow on flats and shallower rocky points and humps as well. When the wake bait bite slows down, switch to a worm on a 1/8 oz Davis Shaky Head in these same areas. Focus on 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 again been productive this past week. Work the rig like a shaky head and watch for light bites. The fluke bite has slowed a bit this week. When it is on, focus on shallow wood such as blowdowns and twitch the bait slowly with 3 second pauses. Shallower, long running flat points are holding fish as well. Often these fish can be found in the 8-10 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. Try a straight retrieve with this bait if the jerk, jerk, pause cadence does not work. 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. Thanks to all and May God Bless.
