    The first picture I took back in spring when the water levels were down 3 or 4 feet and the second picture was taken yesterday while fishing with BOC member Klag. This is the lake at 15ft below level. Bother pictures were taken from almost the exact spot on the shore line IM standing at the high water mark when I took the second picture:crazy:

    the one thing you have to take into account is lake lanier's bottom is shaped like a V and for a lake of this size to be down 15 feet is nuts the governor of GA and the Army corps need to come to an agreement fast cause it shant be long now before the pumps that pump our water will be high and dry in lanier:crazy:

    Thanks for sharing the pictures. It's a pretty messed up deal with the politics going on. I hope they figure something out soon!

    Terry, now is a great time to make a record of the bottom of the lake so you know where you want to fish when the water comes back up. Either take a lot of pictures, or use a video camera. When they lowered the lake level like that on a lake near where I used to live, I found out that the branch channel that ran out of a cove to the main creek channel didn't run almost straight, like I always thought it did; it meandered back and forth in large 'S' shapes. Made a big difference in how I fished that cove.
