This Lake Allatoona lake striper and hybrid report fishing report has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service 770 827-6282 www.firstbiteguideservice.com [email protected].
Line side fishing is Good. The bite this week has been strange. The lake is starting to turn over and the fish are on the move. This week I have caught good numbers Stripers and Hybrids out over the river channel fishing 40 feet deep with live bait, and then again pulling umbrella rigs on a 18 foot bottom. The fish that are out over the river channel seem to be on the bigger size. But the ones that are up shallow are more willing to eat.
Trolling – The umbrella rig bite is probably the best over all bite. But look for these fish to be on the smaller size. This week I have been pulling my rigs 75-80 feet behind the boat on a 16-20 bottom. These fish are on the move. So make sure you cover alot of water. I have caught fish as far north as the S-turns this week all the south to the dam.
Top-Water bite is DEAD…. I have seen very limit top water action this week. And most of it seems to be spotted bass. I look for the top water bite to pick up after the lake finishes turning over.
I still have a few days open for Oct. Give me a call at 770 827-6282 for availability…
