Lake Allatoona Fishing Report For April 29

This Lake Allatoona fishing guides report has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Guide Service, 770 827-6282 Lake Allatoona, Georgia email: [email protected].


Linesides: Excellent. Yhe lineside bite is on fire right now. The white-bass bite is dying off, but both the Little River and Etowah River runs are good for hybrids and stripers. Cut shad seems to be working best, but live shad and chicken liver will also work well. If you want to stay out and catch deeper fish, the Allatoona arm is producing very good numbers of stripers and hybrids.Tanyard, Clark Creek, Iron Hill and from the 75 bridge to the spillway are all good places to look. Every hump and point should have some fish on them. I am having my best luck pulling hand-sized gizzard shad on flatlines and planer boards early, and then he’s switching to downlines once that bite slows. After about 10 a.m., start pulling a U-rig. Chartreuse has been the best color for bucktails on the U-rig, I am having my best luck pulling them 120 feet behind the boat at 3.1 mph. With the way they’re biting at Allatoona right now, even bank fishermen can catch fish. The spillway where Lake Acworth flows into the main lake is full of Crappie. Bream, Hybrids and White bass  that can be caught from the bank right now. Also, Little River Landing is good. Cut shad and chicken liver are good baits. Night fishing under Hydro Glows has been good from Bethany Bridge to Park Marina. Shad or shiners fished down to about 18 feet should be good for the night bite.

We still have a few open day for May Give me a call at 770 827-6282 for availability….
