25JanFirst Bite Guide Service of Lake Allatoona. Contact Robert at 770-827-6282 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org when you’re ready to catch stripers and hybrids. Line-side fishing is good and live bait is working good on down-lines, free lines, and planer boards. The best times for this are early morning and late afternoon. During mid-day, find a point set up over a 30-40 foot bottom and change over to all down-lines. Mid-lake is the only place to be right now and most of the fish caught this week came between 24-30 feet deep.
