Lake Allatoona Thanksgiving Week Report

This Lake Allatoona Fishing Guides Report Is Bought To You By Robert Eidson Of First Bite Guide Service,; 770 827-6282.

Linesides: Good, and getting better. The Umbrella rig bite is starting to be the best over all bite on the lake. Free-lines and planner boards are working early in the morning and then again right before dust. Between sun up and sun down the umbrella bite is king.

There is a down-rods bite but nothing like the umbrella bite. We caught more fish this week on our U-rigs than live ba. That is about norm for most of the winter. I am targeting the flats from the S-turns all the way up to Clear Creek.

I’m not even looking in the Allatoona arm right now. There’s a ton of fish moving up on flats and points to feed on small threadfin right now. Catch them on jigging spoons or Rooster Tails, if you can get them deep enough. Fish 10 to 12 feet deep. The flats off Gaults have been good, as well as the island at Harbor Town and Bartow-Carver.

Seagulls are starting to show up. I expect in December the fishing will be full blown. Key on birds and topwater. Keep a Super Fluke, Sammy or Zara Spook ready. Pull flatlines and planer boards, and later in the mornings pull a lighter three-arm U-rig.

We still have a few days open for Christmas Break give me a call at 770 827-6282 and lets take the kids fishing.
