Leadcore Continues as Topwater Begins.

Report Date: October 1, 2010

Shane Watson Guide Service Report. The leadcore striper bite continues to be good on Lake Lanier. We are seeing many 10 to 20 pound fish on chartreuse and blue 1 oz jigs tipped with a chartreuse paddle tail. We have also had some great downline fishing over the last week or so, but leadcore has been best. There are fish out over the main channel and in deeper coves and bays just of the main lake. The mouths of creeks have also been good. We are catching some on top water as they have been a few stripers up busting at times. Look for big schools of surfacing stripers over the next 4 to 6 weeks and cast a Spro Dawg, a Redfin, a Spook, or a small bucktail to these surfacing fish. Freelined bluebacks will also work on these topwater fish. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service, Hammond's Fishing Center, and Carolina Skiff Boats. Good Fishing and We Appreciate your Business.
