Line-sides Fishing Good but should be better. The lake right now is two feet above full pool and there is trash everywhere. The water temps have also down do to the rain we had earlier in the week. I look for the action to really heat up ( especially )  in the river in the next couple of weeks

 Before the rains last Friday There where fish schooling all over the lake.. The top water bite was the best I have seen in months. Stripes, Hybrids and spots  where busting all over the lake . The south end of the lake is the place to be for numbers. But if you want a big fish you would be better off fishing mid-lake to the north-end ( Again Especially the river )…. Numbers can also be found mid-lake as well.  I really look for this bite to return in the next couple of weeks.

Finding the fish.

This is one of the only times of the year you don’t need your fish finder. These fish are up in the water column and are hard to mark on your fish finder. Just ride the lake in til you see busting fish.. All you need to see is one fish. We stop at one single boil the other day and caught 15 fish… Guys spring is here and so are the fish. Weather you hire me or have your own boat please get the kids and get on the lake. Lake Allatoona is on fire go get them…


Crappie – POOR- The bite we had two weeks ago is gone. The rising water and the drop in temperatures has given these fish lock jar…I have talked to plenty of crappie anglers this week and none of them fair well this week. I think the spring bite is just about over for crappie. And they should be setting up on a summer pattern in the next month. And as far as I am concern it is my favorite way to crappie fish. At night under the Hydro Glow…Starting in May we will start running night trips for crappie, white bass, hybrids ans stripers. We will also offer night  party boat trips as well. More details to come in the up coming weeks.
