Line side fishing: Very Good.

The summer bite is really starting to take off.  All the major creeks are producing good numbers of fish right now.  The down-line bite is the best bite going.

These fish are scattered in the water column from anywhere from 12-50 feet deep right now.  Trust your electronics.  If you are marking fish at 50 feet, go get them.

The south end of the lake is now keeping pace with the north end.  Fish can be caught in almost any major creek right now.

Trolling is working great with the Mack Farr umbrella rig.  The key to trolling right now is not starting too early.  The rig bite is better after the sun comes up and may be your best bet for getting bit midday.

Top water action is good early in the morning and late in the afternoon.  Use a Sammy 110 and catch the hybrids, stripers and schooling spots.

The fishing is great right now.  This is the best time of the year to introduce the kids to fishing.  Give me a call at 770-827-6282 and book your family trip today.
