Professional fishing guides Jeff Blair and Stephen Knight shared their fishing skills at the
January meeting. Attendance was “through the roof”! From knot tying, hook size and style,
main line on a reel, bait preference, use of a stinger hook and many other related matters,
everyone who attended departed with a wealth of new knowledge. We want to sincerely thank
Jeff and Stephen for their excellent presentation. Maybe, just maybe, they will return in
June to discuss some of their techniques for Down Line Fishing.
Club management will always try to present the “best of the best” for our monthly meetings.
So, on February 3, our favorite professional fisherman, Brett Wendel, will make a
presentation on “Improving your Fishing with Mapping and Charting Skills”. Please plan to
bring your copy of the map of Lake Lanier, which will be helpful in identifying points,
underwater humps, etc.
CLUB’S BOOK: By the Book
A huge Thank You to the members who participated in writing the Club’s book! The book
contains chapters on trolling, bait and bait maintenance, using planer boards, flat lines, etc.
The good news is that it is FREE to all members. If you are considering joining our Club,
our book would represent one more additional reason to sign up.
While the Lanier Striper Club offers many benefits to its members (and in many cases
to the entire Lanier Striped Bass Community), one benefit that seems to rise above others
is a periodic Fishing Report, a compilation of input from members covering fishing conditions
for the previous day. The Fishing Report is short and to the point and directs our members
to very specific Lake locations, preferred bait and fishing techniques, time of day for
best results, and proven choices for terminal tackle. Of course, before you head to the
Lake you can always access and peruse your Lanier Striper Club Fishing Book to
prepare yourself for a day of Catching!
