Scream N Drag Fishing Charters

Come visit Scream N Drag Fishing Charters for an enjoyable fishing trip on Lake Lanier. The lake is known for some of the best Striper fishing in Georgia. Come along with Joe Hilliard and enjoy a fishing adventure in the beautiful environment.

You will fish from a 23’ Key West bay boat, a spacious boat that can accommodate up to 5 guests. It runs on a 300 HP Suzuki outboard with a maximum cruise speed of 50 MPH and uses quality navigation electronics to take you to the fish quickly and safely. The boat is equipped with a wireless trolling motor and has multiple live wells to keep the live bait fresh.  You will have a fish box to keep your catch if you choose to do so.

Using light tackle you will target Striped Bass by down rodding, free lining, and pitching live bait. We will also be jigging, casting lures, and trolling certain times of the year.

Scream N Drag Fishing Charters will supply you with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. You just need to bring a fishing license, sunscreen (No spray sunscreen please), snacks, and drinks and you will be set to go. We have a cooler and ice on board so please do not bring a cooler on the boat. Leave your cooler in your vehicle if you choose to keep your catch and we will transport the fish to your cooler at the end of the trip.
Come to Lake Lanier and have a lovely experience on the water with Scream N Drag Fishing Charters!
