This Lake Allatoona striper and hybrid  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]
Line side fishing has been fair this week . The bite this week has been slow. The bait seems to be moving south and so are the fisht. I fished this week from Clear Creek south to Iron Hill. The bait was thick 2/3 of the way back in Clear Creek, Stamp Creek, Coopers Branch and Iron Hill. Now that was the good news.

The bad news is the fish had lock jaw this week. I bet we mark 20 different schools of fish each day I fished. But they just wouldn’t eat. The little success that we did have came on the umbrella rigs. We we fishing our rigs 100 feet behind the boat at speeds of 2.4 – 3.1 miles and hour..

By the end of the month look south of Red Top. Iron Hill Clark Creek and Tanyard Creek along with the Allatoona Creek arm we be where most of the fish will concentrate for the winter.

Come spring the Whites, Hybrids and Stripers with make their run up both rivers Etowah and Little River along with Allatoona Creek. These fish can be caught in great numbers on live and cut shad. Along with Chicken Livers. But if you want a really big fish, this is your time of year.
