Crappie/Striper Report November 5, 2012

by doug

Crappie fishing is hot  on Lanier and Oconee. This is usually a little early but the crappie have already started moving to the winter holding areas. Last week I was out with a customer, Professor Michael Erwin from Ga. Gwinnet College. Michael was doing a study on the crappie population on Lanier. That day we boated 62 good size crappie. All our fish hit tube jigs at 5-15 foot depths. I have also been going to Lake Oconee and having some good action there also. The crappie are quite a bit larger this time of year on Oconee. Last week I fished with Earl Moore and we kept around 60 fish that were all filet size crappie ranging from3/4 to a little over a pound. This action should only get better as water temps. begin to drop down into the 50’s.

The striper action has been fair on Lanier. There are several patterns going for the stripers now. Live bait fished on flatlines are producing best with a few stripers still being caught on the south end downlining bait on 30-40 ft. bottoms. Keep a topwater tied on this time of year as you may see schooling stripers on top. Large Redfins and Zara spooks will produce strikes from surface feeding stripers. Mid lake out over the river channel is where you will find the surfacing stripers this time of year.I will be on the lake this week and will report back soon.
