Line side fishing is great this week for numbers and we have been catching most of our fish on down lines. “Just last week, I had two boats working and boated 84 fish in a half day between the two of us. The hybrids we caught this week where deep. And I mean real deep and they are 42 to 50 feet deep. We have not seen fish this deep on Allatoona in June. They are deep like they are on Lanier. The low levels last year changed the dynamics of the lake. Usually they’re 18 to 24 feet deep. If you see them deep, go get them. Most of the fish are in the mid-lake section to the south, from Galt’s Ferry to the 75 bridge, and I have been catching a lot of fish within sight of the dam. The mouth of Stamp Creek has been good, Coopers Branch is good at sunup, the Allatoona Creek arm and Tanyard Creek are good. You can flat line at sunup, but you’re better off throwing a Sammy and a Fluke because it’s only a 15-minute window to catch them on top, then it’s time for down rods. After the sun gets up good, go to U-rig from right in front of the dam to Stamp Creek. The key is a loaded Mack Farr U-rig with nine ½ ounce jigs. We’re dragging the umbrella rigs and catching six to 12 doing that to wrap up my trips. For lots of action for small white bass, go to the Harbortown Marina area in the evenings and throw a Rooster Tail. I still have some days open for July. I even have July 4 open as of right now. Call me and let’s take the kids fishing. 770 827-6282
