Lines-side fishing is Good!!

The lake is still out of its banks, but is going down.  If we don’t have any more rain this week, I think the loading docks will be usable by the end of next week.

The debris is almost gone.  The strong winds we had earlier this week blew most of it to the banks.  There is still some on the main lake from the dam to Little River.  So, be careful if you’re heading to the lake this weekend.

The bite up the river has returned and there are some very good numbers of Hybrids being caught up the Etowah.  These fish are feeding best on live shad fished on the bottom.

The main lake bite is also very good.  My clients have caught very good numbers aboard our boats this week fishing main lake creek mouths as far north as Little River and as far south as Clark’s Creek.

Our best bite has been on Thread Fin Shad fished on down-lines and free-lines.  Main lake points and humps are also holding some decent schools of Hybrids.

Trolling has been very good for me this week.  I have been pulling Mack Farr U-Rigs 50 – 70 feet behind the boat and have had as many as five on at a time.  The trolling bite is really starting to heat up and will only get better as we enter summer.

The overall bite is really good.  We still have plenty of openings aboard our boats.  Let’s go fishing!
