Lanier Bass Fishing Report – April 2, 2024

Ronnie Garrison | April 2, 2024

Steven Dockery had big fish on Lanier during a tournament the final weekend of March, this 6.47-lb. largemouth.

Scott Barnes reports that is took 20.95 pounds to win the Ameris Bank Mortgage/Hammonds bass tournament over the weekend. The winners were Cole Cloud and Justin Padgett. It took 19.02 pounds to get in the money, and eight places were paid.

Many teams fished from the mouths of the pockets to the very backs in shallow water. Moving baits that produced fish were Keitech swimbaits on 3/16-oz. heads and jerkbaits. The wind helped the bite. Also, several draggers caught good bags with a 1/4-oz. jig and a shaky head in the 10- to 15-foot range. Lots of male fish are up, and you have to weed through them to get a bigger bite.

A few teams did sight fish and brought in 16 to 17 pounds of largemouth. Two bags had all largemouth by sight fishing. Overall the bass fishing is very good at Lake Lanier.

The next Hammonds tournament will be April 7.
