Trolling Cranks In Ga. Today

Recommended Posts

My wife and I got out this afternoon to cruise the creek with the dog and do a little crankbait trolling. We have a house in Bald Ridge creek on Lake Lanier and we just throw a couple deep divers out the back about 150 feet with light tackle and cruise from our house to the mouth of the creek and back. Today we caught 11, 8 of which were dinks and 3 that were halfway decent dinks. All spots today, caught in pockets off the main creek channel. I think all the boat traffic pushed them back into the pockets. Marked plenty of bait in the pockets with the bass, and most of our fish were scraped off a 20-25 bottom around brush. The cranks we were using today were running about 21-23 deep at 2-2.5 mph. Water temps were around 58-60. Here's a couple of pour quality pics.

They might be dinks, but they sure have some nice colors.

Where abouts is Bald Ridge creek and nice catches 

Thanks! Bald Ridge is on the south end of Lanier, straight west from the dam.
