Stripers and Spots on Top Water this Week.
Report Date: September 14, 2011
Shane Watson Guide Service Report 09-14-11. The surface temps are cooling on Lake Lanier and are now in the 70's. This trend towards fall has brought some good size schools of stripers and big spots busting on the surface this week. We've caught these fish on Spro Dawgs, Mc Sticks, and Spooks. The smaller stripers have been up busting along with spots on humps and points. Leadcore has been up and down. U-rigs and down lined blue backs are producing good numbers of smaller stripers over a 30 to 40 foot bottom. We are seeing our better sized stripers on top water lures when they are busting out over the channel or when you are graphing them down 90 to 120 feet deep on bluebacks. Over the next 60 days you are apt to see some great top water fishing on the stripers and spots both mornings and late afternoons.
