Lake Lanier drop-shot striper!?!

Recommended Posts

I went out this morning and started killing the fish in the rain on a drop-shot rig. I was reeling in to re-cast when a fish nailed my worm.  It turns out that it was a tiny Striper!  I never would have guessed that!

Sometimes I make screaming faces in my pictures...I'm not pulling an Ike here.

Ya we hardly ever catch Stripers under three to four lbs though.  And never on a drop shot rig! That was the smallest striper I've ever caught or seen anyone catch.  The fish is actually really far away from my body in the photo and makes it look much bigger.

Oh yes...it is a carrot stix!  I bought a 7'3" bait caster a couple weeks ago and was so impressed that I went out and bought a 6'8" spinning rod yesterday.

I was DSing around some rock piles one day last year and caught a 21 lb carp.  what a fight and what a surprise.  it is kinda fun to catch something different on the DS once in awhile.

I bet that 21 lb. carp made you think you had the lake record! Must have been a crazy battle on DS gear!

Doesn't suprise me at all.  My buddy caught a 13lb striper at Castaic durning a night tournament on a T-rigged 7" power worm.  :)

Hawgcaller...If I can just manage to catch one fish this year, like the ones you've been catching, I'll post a picture of a genuine Ike freak out!
