This time of the spotted variety! If anyone remembers an older post I put of a 5+lb largemouth I caught on Lanier, I caught my PB spotted Bass to match last weekend! She went 5.35lbs and was safely released. She fought HARD on the same little medium light spinning rod and 6lb test line I caught the largemouth on. The bite was pretty good but not insane. Saw schooling fish swimming by and caught plenty of bass, both largemouth and spots all day long at every one of my spots I went to. And what's better, I did it all from the bank! Does anyone else think the largies are making a comeback on Lanier? I catch them big and small pretty regularly lately, at least 2 or 3 every trip but I remember there being 90% spotted Bass most of the time. Now it's about 70% spots, 30% largemouth for me. Can't wait for the fall when I can catch my first Lanier striper and possibly even beat this trophy spot with a 6 or 7lber!
