(beside Hammond's Bait & Tackle)
Meetings are held on 1st Tuesday of each month
On the afternoon of our May meeting, Pat Snellings and Chris Looney, biologists from the
Georgia Department of Natural Resources (who are responsible for managing Lake Lanier’s
fishery) asked if they could attend our meeting and address questions and concerns from
our members. Pat and Chris said that they have stocked just under 300,000 White Bass
fingerlings and fry. They also said that Lanier should receive about 380,000 Striped Bass
fry. Both Pat and Chris promised a return visit after the fry have been released.
A May 11 update from DNR reports that 200,000 White Bass Fry and 210,000 White
Bass Fingerlings were stocked in Lake Lanier!!!!
Without question, our May meeting was a huge success! Our speaker, USCG Captain Ron Mullin
got in the “groove” with our members and guests with an outstanding session of questions and
answers. Undoubtedly, it was a huge benefit to have someone like Captain Ron, who has over
two decades of experience on Lanier, to address questions related to fishing patterns, terminal
tackle, and fishing equipment. We had a “packed house”!
The Officers conducted an informal survey of the members at the May meeting and it was
decided that we will serve fried chicken and all the trimmings at the June meeting. Yes, of
course, we will have an ample supply of Lipitor available to those who may need some. LOL!!!
Also, we may have a homemade “surprise” dessert – time permitting. In sharing June 2015
fishing records from our members and officers, we find that Umbrella Rig fishing was
extremely successful. Accordingly, we will hold an Umbrella Rig Clinic prior to the
meeting – time to be determined later. Speaker to be announced soon.
Officers of the Lanier Striper Club
A huge “Thank You” to Alex Vasquez, Tom Becker, Terry Cramer, Tom Tait,
and John Mantovani!!!!!!!!!!!!!
