The line-side bite this week has been decent.
The bite is starting to get better, now that the full moon phase is behind us. The line-sides are finally starting to feed.
There are two different bites going on right now. The primary bite — most are viewing it as the main bite — is up north. There is a very good bite from the Boys Club all the way north to Sweetwater.
The hybrids and white bass are busting topwater and will eat almost anything when they are up and in this kind of feeding freezing. My bait of choice is a popping cork, along with a white fluke, followed by a Rooster Tail.
The secondary bite is from Kellogg’s Creek to Clear Creek. These fish are about 90 percent hybrids and are being caught right over the river channel. Live bait is working best. Small trout has provided the better bite on my boats. Look for these fish in the bends of the river channel.
The seagulls are starting to show up. December is a challenging month for finding the right techniques. However, it is also one of those months when you can catch a trophy and a cooler full of smaller fish.
Trolling has been hit and miss, but should be in full swing by mid-December. I pull nothing but a Mack Farr four-arm umbrella.
