Linesides: Good, not great, but should get better when the weather stabilizes. The flatline and planer-board bite is starting to pick up but is over with by 9:30 am, then it’s downrods and four-arm U-rigs.
We caught more fish this week on our U-rigs then live bait, and that’s the best bite right now. I am targeting the flats from Victoria all the way up to Clear Creek. I’m not even looking in the Allatoona arm right now. There’s a ton of fish moving up on flats and points to feed on small threadfin right now. Catch them on jigging spoons or Rooster Tails if you can get them deep enough.
Fish 10 to 12 feet deep. The flats off Gaults have been good, as well as the island at Harbor Town and Bartow-Carver. Seagulls are starting to show up. I expect in December the fishing will be full blown. Key on birds and topwater. Keep a Super Fluke, Sammy or Zara Spook ready. Pull flatlines and planer boards, and later in the mornings pull a lighter three-arm U-rig.
