Summertime Striper Fishing on Lake Lanier

Report Date: July 1, 2013

Shane Watson Guide Service Fishing Report 7-01-13. The downline striper bite has been very good the last couple of weeks from down south up to River Forks. Our boats have been out everyday and downline bluebacks fished 20-35 feet deep over a 35-60 foot slick bottom have produced best. Expect a wide range of sizes from 5-20 pounds being most common. We have also caught and released many very big spotted bass that have been mixed in with the schools of stripers. I have seen a good many busting stripers and spots the past few mornings, but we were getting great action on the downline so we stayed with it.

Overall, the downline bite is very good, but you can still catch a few on a weighted freeline early most days and when its cloudy.
