Lake Lanier fishing report: Bass fishing ‘hit or miss’ so far in August

Bass fishing has been hit or miss, but the fish are biting fairly well for August. We have had slightly cooler air and lake temperatures over the past couple of weeks than in years past, and this has made a difference to the fish. Use your Lowrance maps and sonar to find the most active locations.

Start your day around main lake points and humps that have brush in 20 to 35 feet. Cast a top-water plug like a big Chug Bug or a Gunfish. If the fish are actively eating on the surface, you will know pretty soon. Don’t camp on any one spot, but be willing to move to find active fish.
