My record on Lake Guntersville is solid. I’ve had a number of high finishes there that included some 25-plus pound stringers, and I’ve caught them in a variety of ways.
The one thing that factored into nearly all those catches was vegetation.
At nearly 40,000 surface acres, Lake Lanier is spacious and welcoming. Its beautifully sculpted shorelines feature countless points, pockets and coves — all comprised of rock, sand or clay.
The main body of the lake is deep and clear but to the north, the rivers feeding Lanier flow with a chalky stain.
