Line-sides fishing is Fair and getting better!!
The fall bite is starting to show signs of life. The north end of the lake is still producing some nice stripers, along with good numbers of white bass. The bigger stripers are eating gizzard shad fished on planer boards and free lines both right at sunup and again at sundown. Look for these fish from Little River up to Fields Landing and as far south as Kelloggs.
The hybrids and white bass are really starting to school. They’re blowing up all over the lake right now. We have had reports of big schools breaking the surface from the Dam to the S-turns. These busting fish will eat almost anything you throw at them. The bass guys have been killing them on jerk baits. When these fish go down they will still bite thread fins and small gizzards fished on down lines as well as spoons.
Bait is starting to get really hard to net. The water temp was 58 degrees on 11/20/13 early morning and the lights are bringing them in to the boat like weeks passed. So be sure to take some with you. Striper Soup has plenty of fresh shad of all sizes and the Dugout has plenty of trout. As well as Bart’s up on Carters.
The sea gulls are starting to show up and will make finding the fish a little easier for us over the upcoming holiday break. Remember, Allatoona has very few loons. If you see birds diving on Allatoona this normally means there are line sides nearby.
Trollers keep pulling your Mack farr u-rigs 60-120 feet behind the boat at speeds between 2.4 – 3.1 MPH.
We have some days open next week. Please give us a call at 770 827-6282 if you would like to book a trip.
