Lake Lanier Fishing Report March 18 2016 | Weekly report from Captain Mack Farr –
No report this week. I have been very busy putting clients on fish and working with my web guy on a new design for our online shop.
However, I want to share a springtime tip/technique that has been very successful for me year after year. Follow these tips and you can also join in on the fun this spring.
This is a video from a couple of years ago that we shot while crappie fishing. The video is very raw and we decided to film it on the fly. So, I apologize for the quality. I thought you might at least enjoy watching the fight so, grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite beverage) and enjoy!
We were shooting docks for crappie and trolling shiners behind the boat for bass and striper. We landed some real nice stipers and largemouth by simply trolling a shiner under a bobber in 6-10 feet of water (20-30 Feet behind the boat).
In between docks, we would cast our crappie jigs right up onto the bank in an attempt to entice the big striped bass just cruising tight to the shore. You can easily hook into crappie, bass and stripers using this technique, especially in the early morning hours. This is so much fun on very light tackle! Just head back into your favorite creek and hold on!
I’ll be back next week with a full report. Please share any video or pics with us to our Facebook page if you are able to benefit from applying this technique.
