Lake Lanier Fishing Report - May 31st was created by FishingMOZ Reports
Current fishing report for Lake Lanier in Georgia

Bass Fishing:
The lake is currently about a half foot over full, and the water temperature has risen back into the mid seventies.
Bass are in the middle of their transition to their summer homes in the twenty-five to thirty-five foot range around structure.

The fishing has been somewhat up and down, with strong bites followed by windows of grinding to catch one (typical for this time of year).

Recommended Baits:
Slick Stick and Jerkshad over deep brush, humps, and long points.
Ima Skimmer for topwater action (scattered and random).
Shakey head with a green pumpkin green Senko.
Check the dock bite in fifteen to twenty feet of water for shade-seeking fish.
Bass tend to bite better with wind, so fish areas where the wind is blowing.

Striper Fishing:
Water temperature is mid to high 70s.
Down lines with bluebacks over a 50’-80’ bottom are working well.
Points and coves near the river channel are great places to start.
Trolling umbrella rigs and lead core become effective once the water temperature reaches 80 degrees.

Crappie Fishing:
Water temperatures are in the low to mid 70s.
Crappie are suspended 10 feet deep under docks.

Remember to wear your life jackets and enjoy your fishing adventure at Lake Lanier!
