Line side fishing is Good.

The river run is coming to an end.  The stripers and hybrids are really starting to school up on the main lake points, Flats and humps.

This week my clients have caught very good numbers of both stripers and hybrids on a half-day trip.  Free-lining and down-lining shad has been the ticket for us this week.

The fish are scattered all over the lake right now and can be caught almost anywhere.  We have caught good numbers of fish in the mouths of Clark Creek and Tanyard Creek and Iron Hill this week.  We have also done very well mid-lake this week from the S-turns to Bartow Carver beach.

The key to catching these fish is to be on the water with lines out at or before sun up.  Your best bite is going to come in the first hour of daybreak.  These fish are on the move and are starting to school on top.  So keep your eyes open and have a White Zoom Super Fluke Jr ready.

Trolling is really starting to pick up and is working best mid-day.  The umbrella rigs are working best right now over a 30-foot bottom.

We still have a few days open for May.  Don’t miss the action!  Come catch some fish with First Bite Guide Service.  Give us a call at 770-827-6282.
