Lake Burton Fishing

Lake Burton ranks #15 in the Southeast for Bass fishing

Guided fishing trips on Lake Burton are filled with beautiful views and Spotted Bass. 

Lake Burton is one of the most beautiful lakes in North Georgia and currently holds the Georgia state record for Spotted Bass (8 lbs. 2 oz.). Not only does Lake Burton have big Spotted Bass, it also produces some massive Largemouth Bass.

Lake Burton is 2,775 acres and has 62 miles of shoreline, with its massive homes and huge wooden fixed boat houses. Most of these homes are owned by some well known people including; Alabama Head Football Coach Nick Saben, Country Music Artist Alan Jackson and multiple professional athletes.

Target Areas and Techniques:

Some of the best areas to fish Lake Burton is around docks, points and main lake bluffs. The lures of my choice are swim baits, jigs, dropshot, shaky head, crankbaits and jerk baits.
