Line-side fishing: Great!
Fishing this week is the same as last week’s. Change nothing.
Guys, the summer pattern is in full swing right now. That means it is time for Downlines, U-rigs ( Mack Farr), and down-riggers.
Shad are very hard to keep alive right now. So make sure you carry a couple of dozen shiners with you when you head to the water.
The south end of the lake is by far the best bite on the lake right now. Live bait fished off of any main lake point right now will get you bit. Also the humps in the mouth of all the main creeks are holding fish right now.
There is also a good evening bite at the dam.
Trolling: The trolling bite is great right now for big fish. I got some really good fish this week pulling U-rigs near the mouth of Stamp Creek. The trolling bite is a little slower than the live bait bite, but seems to be producing bigger fish for me.
Night Fishing: The striper bite at night is really picking up right now. We offer Hydroglow night trips. Please call for details.
