Line-sides Fishing is  Good right now. The bite this week is the same as last week change nothing… Striper fishing has really change in the past week. The water Temp. Finally hit the magic number of 55 degrees and with that the top water action has taken off. Flat-lines and Planner Boards are working GREAT right at sun up Threadfin and Gizzard shad are working good. By mid-day change over to down-lines . But Trout seems to be out fishing shad 3 to 1 right now.

Mid-lake is still the place to be. There are tons of fish between Kellogg Creek and Stamp Creek right now. This is the only part of the lake I have needed to fish in the past 3 weeks. There may be some fish up in Allatoona Creek I just haven’t been that far south in weeks.

Trolling has been by far the best bite on the water after the sun comes up..Dec and Jan are 2 of the only months of the year that trolling will out product live bait fishing sometimes as much as 7 to 1 in a full day trip. This is the time of the year you have to be universal when it comes to striper fishing. I prefer live bait fishing over trolling but there are just sometimes of the year that trolling just can’t be beat.

Top water The top water bite is really starting to heat up. So keep a spook or a Sammy ready for these busting beast……
