Line-side fishing is fair.
The fish are still scattered up and down in the water column out over the river channel. They are starting to bust topwater along with the white bass. Unlike the white bass which will stay up for 5 to 10 minutes at a time, hybrids and stripers are only staying up for seconds.
Down-lining live bait is working fair off of any main lake point down south. Carry a lot of bait with you. When down-lining, change your bait frequently, if you are not getting bit.
Trolling is your best bet if you want to catch numbers. Most of the fish we caught this week came on Mack Farr umbrella rigs. Pull these rigs at 3-4 MPH about 125 feet behind the boat and have an umbrella rig retriever on board.
White bass fishing is still the best bite on the lake. These fish are schooling on top from sunup to sundown. Just ride until you find them.
Call me and we’ll catch you some fish.
