Line-side fishing is Good!!!! The bite is really starting to heat up.
We have started catching some bigger fish. The north end of Lake Allatoona is fishing best for stripers. Most of the fish that went up the river this summer are back in the main lake and are starting to eat.
Gizzard shad and trout fished behind planer boards and free lines are working best right at sunrise and again at sundown. Midday we are catching fish on down-lines right over the river channel. Remember, the river channel up north is only 24-28 feet deep. Drop your baits to the bottom and then reel up a half a turn.
Mid-lake is starting to heat up with hybrid action. Kellogg’s to Bartow Carver is holding some nice schools of hybrids right now. These fish are still holding right on the edge of the river and creek channels. Thread-fin shad and medium-size shiners fished on down-lines at 24-34 feet deep are working best. These schools are huge and are willing to eat almost anything right now.
If live bait isn’t your thing, be sure to carry a 1 oz. white Flex-it spoon with you.
Topwater: We are finally starting to see a little topwater action on the north end of the lake. It has been hit or miss, but there are some really good schools coming up right before dark between Little River and Fields Landing. A white Roster-tail is hard to beat fishing line-side for these schooling fish.
We still have a couple of days open next week. Give me a call at 770 827-6282 for availability at First Bite Guide Service. You may also reach Robert at his brand-new e-mail address: email@example.com.
