Line-side fishing is: Good right now.
The water temperature is heating up fast and the bite is really starting to get good. The river bite finally started. The white bass have moved up and are being caught on white rooster tails and crappie jigs. I expect we are just days away before the Hybrids and Stripers move up as well.
Right now I am spending most of my time in the creeks. There are decent schools of fish in all the major creeks right now. Kellogg’s, Stamp, Clark, Tanyard and Iron Hill have all produced for my boats in the last 10 days.
There is also another bite going on from Little River all the way up to Fields Landing. If you find the baitfish, you’ll find stripers and hybrids nearby. These fish are feeding up for the upcoming spawn run.
Flat-lines in the morning and afternoon and down-lines midday is the way to go.
The topwater bite this week has been slow compared to last week’s. If you are lucky enough to come across breaking fish, Rooster tails, Flukes, Popping Corks, Jerk baits and free-lining shad will all catch you fish right now.
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 MPH.
Remember, the month April is one of the best months for line-side fishing. We still have a few days open this month and we’re offering family trips starting at $250.00.
