Striper/Crappie Report March 20, 2011

by doug

Striper action is heating up on Lanier. Most of the action this past month has been late evening and night with long A bombers and Mcstick jerk baits. Although last week day time action picked up.  For the stripers try flatlining live bluebacks back in the creeks. All the fish will be shallow this time of year.  You need to  drag your baits right up on the banks for best results. This pattern will continue to get better as we get away from the full moon.  You might want to keep a small 1/4 ounce bucktail or a small pearle zoom fluke rigged  on a 1/4 ounce lead head. Cast this bait right up on the bank and swim it back to the boat as your dragging your flatlines.  Besides catching stripers  you will catch some huge spots  casting the jigs this time on year.  You will find stripers and big spots  mixed in the same depth range. Crappie fishing is still fantastic.  I had 2 crappie trips last week and we boated around 100 fish each day with some really nice size slabs.  All the crappie hit small hal flies and tube jigs in 2-3 ft. of water. The water temp. last week was pushing into the high 50’s which will get the crappie loaded up in the backs of the creeks to spawn. We saw water temps as high as 60 degrees late in the afternoons last week. I look for the crappie to spawn on the next new or full moon. the water temps are right. I will be on the lake tomorrow and will report back soon. Don’t miss out on this spring action. Give us a call and Let’s go Fishing!!! 770-945-0797
