Due to popular demand, we are now offering fishing charters on Lake Allatoona, Hartwell, Carters, and of course Lake Lanier. You will receive the same great fishing experience and great customer service that you have grown accustomed to from us on Lake Lanier, on all of the lakes we fish. Nothing is changing on Lake Lanier, it is business as usual and our regular boats will be running here daily.

At Shane Watson Guide Service, we primarily target stripers while on your trip. We do sometimes catch spotted bass, largemouth bass, catfish, walleye, and an occasional trout, while striper fishing. If one of these other species are biting well while on your trip and you want to catch them instead, just let your guide know and we will be glad to accommodate. Don’t get me wrong, we love to catch big stripers, but we also know that some folks just like to catch fish… any kind of fish…. as long as they are biting well. (Ga. DNR creel limits apply on all species kept.)

Our goal is for you to have a fun and successful fishing trip and to come back again. We value your repeat business and your word of mouth advertising. Thank you for choosing Shane Watson Guide Service. We Appreciate Your Business.
