Two boats set out on Saturday targeting stripers at Laurel Park. To say that the water was muddy would be an understatement. Pulling umbrella rigs through hundreds of marked fish was the method chosen yet there was not a bite to be had. Switching to downlined herring at least brought some results with an 18″ striper. The wind picked up quite a bit after that but it was a good day to get the group out.
GO TEAM LANIER
Boat 1: Steve Lelle & Lynn Gregory
Boat 2: Steve Scott & Clayton Nugent
This striper was caught by a Team Lanier no boater Clayton Nugent. This was his first striper. It was caught 135′ behind the boat on an oblong quick release
bobber. A large gizzard shad was used with a stinger and placed 35′ behind the bobber then the bobber was put 100′ behind the boat. The striper fight lasted 15 minutes.
This blog was created by Steve Scott to assist the casual Striper angler. See my Striper reports in the Coastal Angler magazine and the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division blog. To learn more about Striper fishing join a club. There are two Striper clubs on Lake lanier. The Lanier Striper Club meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of each month meeting at Hammond’s Fishing Center in Cumming, Georgia and the Oakwood Striper Club meeting the 2nd Monday of each month in Oakwood, Georgia.
