Lake Lanier Crappie Fishing Report December 5, 2018
This Lake Lanier Crappie report is from Dan Saknini, member of the Lanier Crappie Angler’s Club.
Water temperature was in the mid-fifties earlier this week.  
With the cold days and nights, expect the water temps to be
50 degrees or below.  Currently, fishing is good, but with the
change in water temps, I expect the bite will slow and the fish
will go deeper.  Once they adjust, the bite should pick up.  
With last week’s rain, the backs of creeks are still
moderately stained.  If you are fishing in stained water, using
darker colored jigs works better.  To have a successful day,
we are having to cover a lot of water until you find the right
spot with schooling fish on submerged brush piles.  Channel
docks are also holding fish, and the water is not nearly as
stained as the backs of creeks.  Bobby Garland’s Mr.
Crappie, and the Panfish Assassins, combined with 1/24 oz
Davis jig heads are a good choice.  If you prefer it, our “go
to” hair jig continues to be a Jiffy Jig.  Because the bite has
slowed, you may want to consider a change to 2 lb test line,
if you are not already using it.  We are catching quality fish,
but 2 lb test allows you to feel the action better and should
still be sufficient for the size fish.  My advice for fishing in
cold weather is to always fish with a friend.  Accidents can
happen, and the best defense is to watch out for one
another.

Be safe!  Wear your life jacket - it can save your life!
