Default Walleye!

For those interested in catching walleye . . . check the General Information forum for Dredger's report this week.

Yep the Walleye are moving in. I caught these 2 males friday night in Hartwell up near Yonah dam. 1 1/2 to 2lb. they hit a rapala firetiger minnow crankbait. Had 5 hits, hooked 3 and landed these two. Very tough to land these fish in the swift water. They were letting a lot of water out of Yonah.

...we used to catch Sauger in Hartwell years ago...my cousin, who lived there, took me a few times...they are from the same family as Walleye, I think...I never learned the difference...no matter, because they were fun to catch and better to eat...we used spinning gear and SR-5 Rapalas...yellow perch pattern...

Blessings!

Anyone know how to target these fish in Lanier? I've heard they are in there, but I've never seen one before! Would love to catch one and check that box.

From what I know, and it aint much, they are pretty elusive unless you are a hardcore walleye guy and use those tactics. The spring run up the river is one way to target them. I think the rain screwed that up. Trolling at depths is another method, downriggers, weighted line. I spoke to a guy up at Thompson Bridge ramp a few weeks back and he normally goes up to Fontana rather than spend time on Lanier and he lives in Dahlonega. I am multi species guy and fish Lanier a fair amount, don't hear many people target them specifically. Kinda like a banded duck or tagged fish, really a lucky by catch rather than a targeted species.
But I could be entirely wrong
