Line-side: Better!!

The fish are really starting to bunch up in the river and creek channels.  Mid-lake (Clear Creek to Victory Landing) has been producing the best.

The best part is these fish are willing to eat this week.  We have caught as many as 31 fish on a half-day trip — on all methods: down-lines, free-lines, topwater and trolling.

Topwater has been the overall best producer, with trolling umbrella rigs running a close second.  This is the time of year that you need to be universal and not one-dimensional on techniques.  Any of these methods will catch you fish on any given day:

  • live bait
  • down-lines and free-lines
  • topwater and
  • trolling.

If you are willing to experiment with all these techniques throughout the day you can load the boat.

If this week is any indication of what’s in store for us, this fall is going to be great fishing on Lake Allatoona.

We still have a few days open next week.  Give me a call at 770 827-6282 or book your trip online at First Bite Guide Service.
