Line-side fishing: Good right now.

The river bite is on hold for now, but it will pick back up as the water starts to clear.

Right now your best chance to load the boat is mid-lake.  There are big schools of fish showing up from Kellogg’s Creek to the S-Turns.  There is also a good bite in the Allatoona Creek arm from Iron Hill to Clark Creek, and another one from Little River all the way up to Fields Landing.

All of your major creeks have fish in them right now.  If you find the baitfish, you’ll find stripers and hybrids nearby.

Flat-lines in the morning and afternoon and down-lines mid-day is the way to go.

The topwater bite this week has been some of the best I have seen since last spring.  These schools are big and are willing to eat.  We caught both Hybrids and White bass on topwater this week using rooster tails, Flukes, Popping Corks, Jerk baits and free-lining shad.

Trolling is working really well right now.  The Mack Farr 3-arm umbrella rig has been producing best for me right now.  Color doesn’t seem to matter, but speed is a factor.  The best speed for me this week has been between 3.3–3.5 miles per hour.
