All the crappie are holding at 6 ft. depths and shallower hitting light weighted tube jigs. Last Saturday we got into some stripers fishing trout on downrods at […]

Striper action on Lanier is starting to improve.  Its been a tough month for the stripers as the lake is still in the turnover stage. As the water temps drop into the mid 50’s the stripers should get more predictable and move into the main creeks on the upper end of  Lanier. This week I […]

Fishing for stripers is at its peak.

Today was a little tough […]
