Lake Lanier Crappie Fishing Report December 6, 2017

Water temperature is in the mid-fifties and dropping. So
far, we have been enjoying moderate temperatures for
fishing, and as a bonus, this past Sunday we had a
Super Moon.  That means that the moon was 7% larger
and 16% brighter.  A combination of full moon and
above normal water temp resulted in a really strong
bite.  If the water temperature drops significantly with the
approaching cold weather, the bite will slow down until
the fish adjust, after which it will pick back up.  The up
side of cold weather is that the bigger fish tend to move
to docks with structure, which will hopefully bring them
out of hiding.  Submerged stand alone brush piles in
fifteen to twenty five foot depths should continue to be
your main target.  Your downscan will help you find the
brush piles and let you determine the depth of the fish
suspended on the brush. If you want to fish the south
side of the lake, Four Mile Creek should be high on your
list.  If you enjoy trolling, try long lining or tight lining as
they are also effective methods this time of year.

Stay safe on the water and wear your life jacket!
