Team Lanier on Lake Hartwell April 24, 2015


Team Lanier had a great day on Lake Hartwell today fishing with Bill Chasey of Buford GA. We caught and released 22 Hybrid Bass in five hours fishing the Tugalo river almost to Yonah Dam. Among the countless water releases which didn’t stop our trek heading up river to catch these hard hitting fish, we caught a fish about every 13 minutes. We did get a triple but we were only able to get 2 fish actually in the boat as it was like a Chinese fire drill with downrods going down all around the boat.

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.
