Late November Lake Lanier Tournament

Last Sunday 11 members of the Spalding County Sportsman Club fished our November tournament at Lake Lanier. Although the lake was nine feet low, we managed to land 33 bass weighing about 67 pounds. There were only two largemouth weighed in, all the rest were spots. Three fishermen had limits and two did not catch a 14-inch keeper.

Sam Smith won it all with five weighing 12.90 pounds and had a 3.82 pound spot for big fish. George Roberts had a limit weighing 9.37 pounds for second, my four keepers weighing 9.04 pounds was third and Niles Murray came in fourth with five at 8.52 pounds.

I had high hopes the spots would be feeding on wind blown points, and we had lots of wind. The first place I stopped I got a three pound spot on a spinnerbait on a rocky point in the wind, the pattern I thought would be good. Two hours of throwing spinnerbaits later I had not gotten another bite!

In desperation, I went to a clay point with a road bed on it and cast a crankbait across it and caught a spot weighing almost two pounds. There is some brush on the roadbed out on the point and I moved to it and caught a bare keeper on a drop shot worm. Then I got a 13-inch non-keeper on a jig head worm there. Although I fished I hard I did not get another bite.

With only an hour left to fish I went to a point near the weigh-in where there is some deep brush. After about 15 minutes of dragging a jig and pig through the brush I felt a tap and set the hook on another three-pound spot. That was it for the day, five bites and four keepers on four different bait.

After the weigh-in Sam said he caught ten keepers on a spinnerbait, culling down to five for the win. He said it was a special spinnerbait. I guess I did not have the special one!

The size of the spots at Lanier is amazing. We had many three pounders weighed in. I had one weighing a little over three pounds and another one almost exactly the same size. They pull hard and are fun to catch. I would fish Lanier a lot more if there was a way to get to it without fighting all the interstate traffic coming home.

Fishing Report, Lake Guntersville 12/3/16

With me being in-between boats my report is going to be second hand; I expect my 2017
Ranger boat to be ready no later than this Monday. Fishing however is becoming typical
winter type patterns with some big bites, with bites being limited but size being the kicker to
a good day. The fish seem to be in various depths with the bite being deeper early in the day
and shallower as the day warms from the December sun.

Most folks are fishing slowly, with Tight-Line jigs, big Punisher one oz. type spinner baits and
SPRO rattle baits (Aruka Shad) as the shallower bait for up in the warming part of the day.

Depth appears to be in the 15 to 20 feet range early in the day then 6 to 10 feet as the day
progresses and warms. The big females are moving on up in the day as they normally do as
we progress further into winter.

With all the small fish we caught this fall, I really expect 2017 to be much better than last
year; at least it’s shaping up that way. I am booking for 2017 now; I am also selling Christmas
gift certificates. If you’re looking to set up some of your customers with some great
entertainment bass fishing is a great way to do it. Come fish with me no one will treat you
better!

CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 10.7 FEET, 60’S

Bass fishing is fair and the lake is very low. This is the best time to take advantage of the Lowrance down Scan technology and you can count the fish on the bottom. The 1/2 ounce size will catch you an occasional larger fish but not as many. Small Chunk Rock will be the key to fishing these baits. Look for the larger patches along the bank and even around the smaller islands. Herring schools are popping up more and more across the lake along with schools of other bait fish. Continue to hit the channel side banks with Shad Raps and Glass Shad Raps. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. A Minnow Rap swims like the blue back and will reach depths up to eleven feet. X Raps in Olive Green on the points and over the tops of the shallower grass mats are working well also. In Little River spinner baits around the rocky islands and on the rip rap. Change colors and sizes of your baits in search for bigger bass. Pearl colored Wildeye Swim Shad is another excellent swim bait in the four inch size to use when bait fish are present. Don’t overlook that top water bite and watch the birds. Main Lake points with the wind blowing on them is always a good place to start.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 10 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & 60’S

This report brought to you by Jimbo on Lanier 770 542 7764 www.jimboonlanier.com

Bass fishing is good. There are many patterns working out on Lanier right now for the spotted bass. The fish are definitely in transition right now, and with that transition comes many options. There are fish very shallow, mid depth, and deep. We are still seeing schooling fish on some days, but these are often just stripers, with a few spots mixed in at times. The stripers, and the spots in some cases, that are schooling right now seem to be focused on the small threadfin shad. Therefore they will often ignore your typical topwater offerings. Casting a jigging spoon into these fish is one way to imitate the small bait. There are some other options as well, but it just takes some experimentation to figure out what they will eat. Think small and be creative. We are getting some good fish early in the mornings throwing a Spro Crankbait and spinnerbait on windblown rock and clay points in both main lake and creek pockets. When the moving bait bite slows down, switch to a finesse worm on a Picasso Shaky Football Head or a Chattahoochee Jig. The mouths of the major ditches/creek arms are starting to hold fish more consistently. There are also some fish and bait present in the actual ditches. We look for the ditch bite to get very strong in December as we start to see some more seasonable temperatures and conditions. With the warm fall we have had and the slower than normal transition, we look for December to be an outstanding fishing month on Lanier! There are still fish hanging around the brush on the points that lead into the main creek arm channels around the lake and can be caught a number of different ways. A swimbait and a jerkbait have both worked well at times, and we are starting to have good success with both a Chattahoochee Jig and a Shaky Head in the area of the brush as well. We have started to spoon up some fish out of the timber, or near the timber, in creek arms/ditches in 30 to 40 feet. The process is starting to happen. We look for this to strengthen as we continue into fall, and once the bait gets well established in the ditches, look for the SuperSpin bite shallow in the ditches first thing in the morning to be a predominant pattern. A jerkbait in these areas should work well also. We have a great early winter experience in store folks. I am now guiding in a Brand New Xpress Bass Boat – 21’3″ powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO and equipped with the latest Lowrance HDS Gen III units featuring 3D Structure Scan technology. Come take a ride in this beauty! The ditch bite will be here in December. If you are looking to learn this valuable technique, make sure to schedule a day with me this month! Here are the dates I have open in December: 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 14, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30. Give me a call and let’s get out and have some fun! If you have been waiting for the fall bite, it’s here, and it’s time to FISH! Thanks to all and May God Bless.

This Lake Lanier Striper report is from Captain Ken West 404 561 2564. Contact us on our web site. www.bigfishonguide.com

Striper fishing is good. We finally got some cooler temperatures and the fishing has improved. The fishing will only get better with the much needed recent rains. The key is to fish the creeks with the greatest concentration of bait. You may not be able to mark the fish with Lowrance Sonar but if the bait is thick the odds are there are fish in the area. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. We have been fishing half way back in the creeks with the most bait. Free line Herring has been your best bet early giving way to downlines later in the day. Set your free lines back 70 to 100 feet with a Herring or Trout and pull at .5 mile per hour. Try a small split shot on one of your lines and vary your trolling speed to locate your baits at various depths. If you are using planner boards set your bank side outside board at 15 to 20 feet behind your board and the inside boards at 40 to 50 feet behind the boards. Always hang a couple of down rods over the side when you are pulling baits. In addition, put someone on the front deck throwing a Capt. Mack’s buck tail jig; you may pick up an extra fish or two. The water temperature is in the high 50’s. The water is stained in the creeks and clear on the main lake. The lake is 10 feet below full pool.

This Lake Lanier Crappie report is from Dan Saknini, member of the Lanier Crappie Angler’s Club. See our club’s website, www.laniercrappieanglers.net

We’ve been praying for rain, and we finally got some! As of this evening, Lake Lanier is just over 10 feet below full pool. But the creeks will continue to drain into the lake, impacting both the level and the color of the water. This will result in moderate to heavily stained water in the backs of the creeks. The bite may slow a bit as the crappie acclimate to the stain, but should pick back up within a few days. With above average fall temperatures, water temps continue to be in the upper 50’s, with slight variation from creek to creek. Submerged brush piles continue to be my favorite targets. The bait is present in abundance, and with the current water temps, both the bait and the crappie are roaming aggressively. Don’t hesitate to cast far beyond the targeted brush pile and retrieve across or around it. The color of the water should dictate the color of your jig. Use darker jigs in stained water. Crappie minnows are still a good substitution for jigs. The trolling bite continues to be good. Get out on the water between the rains when you can, and go catch some fish. Stay safe on the water wear your life jacket!

LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 7.4 FEET, 60’S & CLEAR

This Lake Allatoona Bass fishing report is from Matt Driver.

Bass fishing is great. You can catch them on just about anything. The jig bite and shaky had been on fire. Numbers are really good right now with 15 to 20 fish not hard to come by. Larger schools of fish have been found in 10 to 15 foot depth range. There has also been a decent spinner bait bought on long point. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. The fish are definitely on the move and feeding up. Hopefully by the end of the month we will see a decrease in water temperatures to fire up the jerk bait bite. Red top to Iron Hill has been very productive.

This Lake Allatoona fishing s report for striper and hybrid has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson First Bite Service 770 827 6282 www.firstbite service.com eidson6260@comcast.net.

Lineside fishing is good. The rain this week has really jump started the bite. The fish and the bait is starting to migrate north. Free lines, planner boards, downlines and spoons are all working. Our best bite has been north of the dam to the S turns. Find the bait on your Lowrance and the fish should be close by. Christmas is almost here and First Bite Gift Certificates are now on sell.

LAKE JACKSON IS DOWN 2.0 FEET, 60’S

Bass fishing is fair. The fish are holding and relating to the wood in the lake while the spots are doing their usual thing and roaming around. Cover a lot of water and use a Rattlin Rapala. This lipless crank bait is an ideal fall bait and will locate and catch a limit of bass each day. With the stained water, use the red crawdad or the red fire crawdad color. This bass will relate to the crawfish colors and attack the bait when it comes across. Work the small rocky banks and cover as much water as possible. Check out the small cuts or bowls in the bank and work to the secondary points back in the coves. Follow up this bait with a RS Shad Rap or Jointed Shad Rap and work the same areas as before on the return back to the ramp. Stay in the river mouths especially if they are pulling water through the dam. Any current will drive the bass into a feeding frenzy and cranking the back sides of points and rip rap will get you a limit in a hurry.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.

Bass fishing is good and Sugar Creek is the hottest area on the lake. Using small crank baits or spinnerbait’s around the shallow water and near the docks or any other structure you may find. As the lake begins to clear the bite will become better all over. Work a buzz baits early or all day if the weather is overcast. Make sure that you work the back corners of the docks and the area where the walkway goes from the shore to the dock. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. Rocks anywhere on the lake will have shad and usually lots of them and bass will make their way to this structure anytime of the day. It’s hard to beat a Shad Rap, shad color on 10 pound test Sufix Elite line. Bump the rocks with the baits by casting parallel to the rocks.

Crappie fishing is good. The fish are holding on brush piles in 10 to 12 foot of water around the lake. Using live bait or casting the jigs over the brush will be your best bet to catch a good number of fish.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 8.3 FEET, CLEAR & 60’S

Bass fishing is really picking up with the water rising and the warm weather. Up Lake Yellow Jacket Creek and coves around Highland are producing some really nice fish on 3/8oz white Chatterbait. Follow up with a ¼ oz Tommy Head shaky Head rigged with a finesse worm in Bama Bug or any of the green colors. Look at 5 to 8 feet deep as still the most productive depths to start hunting those largemouth. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. Mid to down lake fish are biting on drop shots and Carolina Rigged worms. Just fishing the shad balls or brush piles and those should produce some good bites. Creek ledges are producing some good fish on jigging spoons but with the stained water coming in I’m not sure the bite will last. #5 Shad Rap is working around the Rip Rap and long rocky clay points upriver but you just got to cover a lot of water.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.7 FEET, CLEAR 60’S

Bass fishing is good. Not much top water activity right now but any warming trend can change that so keep a top water bait ready. Watch for signs of shad breaking the surface. The pattern for bass fishing is primary and secondary points. Wind blowing in on these points is the one main factor you need to look for this week. Also fish plenty of rock and wood lake wide. Use the #5 jointed Shad Raps and Rapala DT6 in the shad colors. The water is good and clear so stay with the natural colors. By mid day the bass are holding tight to cover and jigs around boat docks and lay downs will catch you several.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.

WEISS LAKE IS AT 6 FEET 4 INCHES BELOW FULL POOL AND CLEAR AND 53 55 DEGREES

PLEASE BE SAFE, BOATING ON WEISS LAKE. The lake is BELOW winter level and VERY DANGEROUS! With the drought conditions Weiss Lake is down below the normal levels for this time of the year. Rain has improved conditions some, and the lake has come up 4 inches in the last 2 days.

Bass fishing is good and most fish are still shallow on the creek ledges, on secondary points, sand bars and humps, and they are being caught on Rat L Traps, shallow running flat side crank baits, spinner baits and jigs. The Spotted Bass are biting great in the upper Little river and Chattooga River.

Crappie fishing is great and most fish are suspended in the main Coosa River, Little River and the Chattooga River channels, suspended 8 to 14 feet deep, over the main river channel and they can be caught, Long line trolling with Jiffy Jigs in 1/24th and 1/16 ounce in colors JJ12, JJ17, JJ20, JJ24, JJ25, www.jiffyjigs.com. Spider rigging with live minnows, fished 6 to 12 feet deep is also producing well, a float and fly technique and minnows under a float is also producing well.
