Lake Lanier Fishing Report: Bass seem to be biting best shallow early in the day

Bass fishing has been good for most, but a few anglers are having a hard time really patterning the fish. The good news is that the bass are moving shallower where they are easier to catch. Main lake points and humps as well as docks and shallower cover can all hold big fish right now. My suggestion to most anglers is to pick a method you are good at or have confidence. Stick with it until the fish tell you it’s time to make a change.

If I had only one choice of a lure/technique to fish this week, it would be skipping or casting a ¬-ounce Gamakatsu Alien Head rigged with either a Lanier Baits straight tale worm or a Big Bites Baits five-inch Finesse Worm. There are other lures that are producing well, but the shaky head worm has been catching both numbers as well as big fish.
