Here's where to catch the best crappie action in Georgia this February.

Let's take a look at the options available for February Crappie Fishing in Georgia.

Whether your passion is floating a fly down a mountain trout stream, cruising the beaches with an eye peeled for tripletail, or bass fishing on one of Georgia's many reservoirs, the Peach State can meet your needs.  Let's take a month-by-month look at what Georgia has to offer.

Here's a sample of some great destinations to help you plan your next fishing trip and be sure to check out the solunar fishing calendar on In-Fisherman!


Stripers and Hybrids:

Lake Allatoona

Lake Allatoona anglers can enjoy some of the best fishing of the year for stripers and hybrids in the dead of winter.   Mixed schools of stripers pushing 20 pounds and scads of hybrids in the 5-pound range can make for fast and furious fishing when the bite is on.  The fish are congregated around offshore structure enjoying the cool water temperatures and gorging on schooled up bait.

Tips: Start your search around main lake points and humps.  The Galts Ferry area of the lake is a good choice.  Use your electronics to find offshore structure holding bait and hopefully stripers and hybrids too.  Fish frisky gizzard shad on down lines or free lines and hold on tight.  Always keep an eye on what the birds are doing.  Diving gulls almost certainly mean bait is being pushed to the surface by big fish below.  When the action starts it can be fast and furious.

Other Options:

Lake Sinclair anglers find this month to be good fishing for slab crappie.  Early on, troll small jigs offshore then follow the fish to the staging areas as the spawn nears.

Lake Seminole is one of the best bass lakes in Georgia, and its southern locale means the bass are way ahead of schedule.  Now is the time of year to catch a wall hanger.
