Cooler Weather and Late Summer Striper Fishing on Lanier.

Report Date: September 14, 2010

Shane Watson Guide Service Report (09-14-10). The late summer striper bite continues on Lake Lanier. I saw some 79 degree surface temps at daylight this morning. Since my last report the striper fishing has been strong most days. The last 2 days have been exceptional on leadcore and on downline bluebacks. The boat traffic has been low and the fishing pressure has been lower. The fish have been bunched up and biting well. We are still catching many fish out over the main channel and as you can see on my graph from today, we are getting on some nice schools over a 50 to 60 foot bottom. Many of you have e-mailed and called wanting to see what jig set up I am using, so here is photo of the chartreuse one. The other setup is a white jig with a Shadalicious paddle tail. We have also got on a few schools of busting stripers and caught them on Spro Dawgs. We expect a great topwater bite over the next 2 months as the surface temps continue to drop. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service, Hammond's Fishing Center, and Carolina Skiff Boats. Good Fishing.
