If you’re up for a freshwater adventure in Georgia, visit Cumming and join Chase In Fins! Captain Bruno Mingione has been fishing on Lake Lanier for 19 years, and he’ll be happy to show you all the best spots and techniques when it comes to lake fishing.

His 23’ Carolina Skiff center console boat is perfect for exploring these productive waters. The boat can accommodate up to 4 people who can all fish at the same time. It features a wireless trolling motor, so you can target those fearful fish without spooking them. There’s up-to-date navigational equipment on board, as well as an icebox and a cooler.

Capt. Bruno will have Shimano, Okuma, and Daiwa rods and reels for you to use, and you’ll be fishing with live bait prepared in advance. Be sure to bring your fishing license, which you can get online before the trip.

Lake Lanier is home to different species of Bass, so you’ll target Striped, Spotted, and Hybrid Striped Bass on all trips. If you want to take your catch home and have it for dinner, you are free to do so. Keep in mind that there are no cleaning stations in the area, so you’ll have to take care of cleaning and filleting the fish.

Spend some quality time with your family in nature, and make some lifelong memories with your kids. Capt. Bruno loves fishing with kids and seeing the excitement on their faces after they reel in their first fish! Life jackets will be provided for them, so you can relax and enjoy your day.

Make sure to dress weather-appropriately, and bring some food and drinks to stay refreshed throughout the trip.

Pack your things, book Chase In Fins, and get ready for a freshwater fishing adventure like no other!

Half day trip with Captain Bruno

VERIFIED   5 Hour Trip (PM) on April 7, 2021
Fun trip despite only catching a couple of fish. Guess that’s why they call it fishing instead of catching! The lack of fish...
