ABOUT US


Welcome to Lanier Guide Service (LGS). I’m Brian Nyswaner and I have lived and fished on this beautiful lake for over twenty-five years. As a professional guide, I invest 300+ days on the lake each year. By doing this I maintain constant, valuable insight into the ever changing lake and fishing conditions. I am a University of Georgia graduate with a degree in environmental science. After graduation I worked in the corporate world managing a successful cellular operation. But the lure of the Lake and my passion for fishing directed me to pursue a career as a professional guide. I began striper fishing in the early 1990’s before it became the popular sport it is today. I had the good fortune of learning from a local legend, Don Roberson. He was among the early pioneers that brought striper fishing on Lake Lanier to the forefront. I maintain a productive relationship with several veteran guides here on the lake. We work closely as a team exchanging information on current patterns and techniques improving our catch rates and the customers’ experience. I operate two high performance fishing machines: a Sportsman 247 and a Triton 240LTS. The Sportsman is new while the Triton has 10 years of fishing experience and runs great. Both boats are equipped with the latest in equipment and technology designed to provide customers a safe, pleasurable day on the lake.

Fleet


Lanier Guide Service (LGS) operates two fully equipped large bay boats: a 2017 Sportsman 247 and a 2007 Triton 240LTS. Both are rigged with market leading electronics and periphery equipment. The Sportsman is my primary boat and I prefer it for Standard group trips due to its size and a layout that easily accommodates 6 guests. Its state of the art cockpit and T-Top provides protection and comfort for those hot Georgia days. The Sportsman also boasts the newest in electronics and periphery equipment, ideally suited for summer time striper and spotted bass. The Triton is useful for specialty trips up the head waters in the spring time in search of goliath spring time striper, white bass and crappie. It is also set up for trips where the main focus is large mouth and spotted bass fishing utilizing primarily artificial lures.
