I would have to recommend this place. It is absolutely unreal. It's a good treat to get away from "Public" waters for a place like this. http://www.dreamlakelodge.com/

I've been out with Capt Fred Duncan many times on Allatoona. His price is reasonable and we've always caught fish. Twice, in 4 hour trips, we caught over 120 lbs of stripes and hybrids. In another, we hooked into 4 fish over 15, landing a 16 and a 20. A picture of that one is on his website: http://www.allatoonastripers.com/

Default Lake Walter F. George (aka Eufaula)

Captain Sam Williams, of Eufaula, AL, and Billy Darby, of Fort Gaines, GA, are two good 'uns for that spot.

I have to add my 2 cents in here as well,

I have used Captain Mack Farr on Lanier for 5 years, he has been guiding on the lake since he was 18 years old and he knows his stuff. He is a huge UGA fan, has a great personality, will teach you anything you want to know and is very reasonable. You can check him out at www.outdoorenterprises.com or call him at 770-271-0851.


For Hartwell I use a guide by the name of Steve Crenshaw, he is on the South Carolina side. I have used Steve now for 3 years and everytime he has put us on the Stripers and Hybrids. Steve is also good about telling you wether he is on them or weather you should re-schedule because he is just not catching them. You can reach Steve @ 864-261-6319. I promise you will not be disappointed.

I know this is an older generated post but it is fishing time again. Seriously, if you want to go on a guided trip you won't ever forget for bass on lake Lanier check this website out. www.lanierspots.com This is Ryan Coleman's website. He is a professional guide for lake Lanier and knows how to catch big fish as well as numbers of fish. Check his website out and give him a call. Tell him Haven told you to call him and he will take you out on a trip of a lifetime. I think he has 3 days left in april. All booked this month if I'm not mistaken. Awesome guy though.

Jerry Hester on Lanier for stripers, spots, or crappie.

I've been fishing with him 4 times over 4 years, and have caught fish 4 times!

2004 we caught lots of spots plus 2 8+ lb stripers.

2005 I landed this 36 inch, 18+ lb striper:

Thumbs up First Bite Guide Service

I took my boys on our first guided trip last week on Lanier with Robert Edison of First Bite Guide Service. He also fishes Allatoona and Carter's. I had heard lots of good things about Robert and he was as good as advertised. Honestly I can't imagine anyone being better with kids. Not only did we catch fish, the kids had a blast with Robert, who admittedly is kind of a big kid himself. Robert's one of those guys who makes you feel comfortable right off the bat and doesn't mind letting you get involved in everything going on. It's been a week and my kids are still talking about it. We're already planning a trip with him for next year. Here's a good spot my 8 year old Austin caught. Think he's happy?

I would agree, my son (T3), my brother and father-in-law had a great time with Robert. He definitely loves what he does and know how to do it!!!!

I will be going with Joey Mines over at West Point in a couple of weeks. Have never been fishing with a guide before but am looking forward to it. Some of my co-workers went 2 weeks ago and had a blast!

Default another Robert Eidson reccomendation

My brother, sister-in-law and I went out with Robert on consecutive mornings (Lanier one day, Allatoona the next). He loves what he does (Harold Nash - are you listening?). He spent significant time on the phone planning our time. His flexibility allowed us to cast for spots, while slow trolling live bait for stripers and/or hybrids.
He consistently put us on fish and we managed a 15 lb striper and many spots and hybrids.

He mixes a sense of humor with a great confidence in himself, which is contagious and encouraging to those of us that like to chuck n' wind all day.

Contact him via www.firstbiteguideservice.com or 770-827-6282

I have fished with Randall Kirkpatrick on the small lakes in the Atlanta area (Smith, Sweetwater Creek SP, Varner, etc) and he is great for information and large bass.

Matt Driver at mattdriverfishing.com is also an excellent choice for lakes like Allatoona, Logan Martin and West Point. Matt specializes in finesse fishing and will help put several fish in the boat on most trips.

Going to use a guide on Lanier in August (I know not optimum time for Stripers) but was wondering if there are any guides that do both Stripers and if you are not on them than other types of Bass. Has anyone ever used Shane Watson.

For you fly fisherman or those wanting to learn, Kent Edmonds guides at Calloway Gardens, the Flint, and the lower Hooch for a variety of warm water fish. He is an excellent teacher and is super with novices. If you've been interested in learning to fly fish or you've been fly fishing for a while, but never caught a striper or hybrid on one, Kent would be a great choice.
