The Striper Experience

The Striper Experience is a professional guide service that operates in Lake Lanier, Georgia. Captain Ron Mullins runs the charter and will be happy to set up a trip that’s tailored to your individual needs. With more than 30 years of fishing experience, he can show you all sorts of tips and tricks he’s had the fortune to pick up over the years.

You will be cruising Lake Lanier in Captain Ron’s 25’ Key West bay boat, which is equipped with a 350 HP Suzuki engine that can have it speeding up to an impressive 40 knots. Apart from all the necessary safety gear, the boat also has the latest in navigation equipment, including Humminbird Lakemaster GPS and Solix fishfinder. A Minn Kota wireless trolling motor is also present to make sure you don’t spook any fish.

As you probably saw from the photos, Bass fishing is the name of the game on Lake Lanier. Captain Ron has been fishing the lake since 1994, and it’s safe to say he’s a bonafide expert when it comes to fishing Striped Bass. Apart from Striped Bass, the lake is also home to Spotted Bass, and Catfish can make an appearance from time to time.

The price includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, plus live and artificial bait. Any anglers over the age of 16 will need to bring a valid fishing license, these can be found and bought online as well. Make sure to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as snacks if you like, and get ready for some real Bass action.

My earliest memories are of me fishing on the lake that I grew up on in Miami. We moved to Palm Beach Gardens, FL when I was twelve and I began fishing the Intracoastal Waterway and started commercial fishing Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper out of Jupiter inlet when I was 17. After moving to the Atlanta, GA area in 1994, I began fishing for striped bass on Lake Lanier. In November 2008 I had the opportunity to make my passion for fishing my occupation and have been a full-time guide since.
