Default Lake Lanier Striper fishing

Taking the Dorado to Lake Lanier for vacation starting around July 4th. Would love some advice about catching striped bass....if it is season for them. Caught plenty of them as a kid on the Chesapeake but thought it would be a fun way to spend some time on the lake.

Any tips, tricks, locations, what bottom to look for, etc would be appreciated. Or, if you have gear and the know how and want to fish on my $$$ on my boat, that could be worked out as well.

Not sure what’s working now, but a couple weeks ago we casted live herring on 1/0 circles around the boat in flat creek, and just hung out til a line would take off. Hooked 3-4 in a couple hours then went to a Fish Tales for tacos

Yeah, most of the bait shops around the lake will have them. We typically use Oakwood bait and tackle

Also try Hammonds Crossing at the intersection of hwys 306 and 369. They generally will have what ever live bait is available.
