Need A Starting Spot Near Buford, Georgia

Recommended Posts

My son recently moved to Buford, Georgia and has finally got settled in enough to start thinking about going carp fishing again.  He is clueless about where to start trying. 

Any thoughts?

Buford, Georgia => Google Maps => plenty of blue around, Lake Lanier looks impressive!

Lake Lanier carp => Google search => carp are there, 30 pounders reported, bow fishing is a pain (but then it is all over southern states).

Took me a whole 5 minutes to come up with the following suggestion: go at a camp site on the shore of lake Lanier. Throw a good deal of corn. Set up your rods. Wait from the comfort of your tent. Chat with people. If they bow-fish, try hard to stay polite. If it doesn't work, try the next camp site! Enjoy.

PS. there are plenty of carp anglers in GA, either CAG members or former CAG members. A quick search on this forum will give you plenty of names.

Thanks Jerome.

The wheels of exploration, via Google, are in motion.

If someone asks what you are doing, hopefully that will be the time you get a run. Let them reel in the carp (hope it's a carp, buff not bad) with you netting it. Place it on the mat, explaining why you have a fin-friendly net and mat. Use the weighing sling, if you have one, and show them the weight. Then challenge them to hang around and try for a new PB! Welcome to GA for your son. Used to live there.

Ken and son, you should contact Barry Shildneck (e.g. on Facebook). He's the state chair for GA. And I believe he lives in the area you're referring to, or close. Very nice guy, always eager to help new carp anglers.
