Line-sides Fishing is Fair.
The lake is in full turnover and the overall bite is just tough. The Hybrid bite is decent one day, then tough the next day. This is just the way it is during turnover on Lake Allatoona.
The striper bite remains decent. These fish are coming back down out of the river and will take a big gizzard shad on a planer board and or free-line early morning and then again late afternoon. The north end of the lake has been fishing best for stripers, but there has also been a few good ones caught mid-lake this week.
The Hybrids are schooling up and are easy to find. But getting them to eat is a different story. Hybrids are feeding on very small baits. I believe the crappie guys are catching as many Hybrids as us line-side guys right now. Mid-lake is holding big schools of Hybrids right now. These fish are going to have to eat sooner or later.
I believe a great fall bite is just around the corner. I really expect fishing on Allatoona to break wide open in the next couple of weeks.
Trollers: Keep pulling your u-rigs in the river channels during mid-day. But in the morning try pulling single bucktails in water less than 20 feet deep. This includes shallow humps out in open water.
