Line side fishing is Great. Fishing this week is the same as last week and maybe a little bit better, change nothing, but the lake is still 6+ feet above full pool but the lake looks good. There is very little debris and the water is clear on the south end and the little line sides are schooling on top earlier morning and then again right before dark. I expected it to take a few more days or even weeks for the fishing to pick back up, but it is better now then it was before all the rain.
The top water bite is off the charts and these fish will eat almost any thing you throw at them. Use a white Rooster Tail or a Jr Spook. Mid day down lining live bait mid lake is also working well. The trolling bite is also good, but be sure to keep your main line free of pine straw. There are more and more ramps opening daily. I look for all ramps to be open by next week.
