Line-side fishing is Slow!
Last week it was the rain. This week it’s an arctic blast with record lows. The fish are just shell shocked right now. Hopefully the weather will stable out in the next few days as well as the bite.
The key to catching fish right now is to find clear water. There is clear to lightly stained water from Allatoona Landing to Redtop. This is the best water on the lake right now. This section of the lake is holding fish, but getting them to eat is challenging. Our better bite has been coming on spoons and U-rigs. The bigger fish are more out to eat Shad and trout fished on planer boards and free lines. But the bites are very few and far between.
The bite has been so slow that I have been and will be moving all of my Allatoona trips to Carters Lake. Lake Allatoona just doesn’t have a bite I am willing to put the Firstbite name to right now. Hopefully the bite will pick up soon.
Carters Lake Special Weekly Report
The bite this month has been decent for numbers, but the size of the fish we are catching makes up for the lack of numbers.
Down-lining trout has been producing well for us early morning. Most of the fish we are catching early are in the back half of the creeks. There was also a good bite up the river earlier this month. But the recent rains have slowed the river bite down. Once the sun comes up the fish are moving out of the backs of the creeks. They can be caught on the main lake pulling U-rigs. Color really doesn’t seem to matter but speed does. I am pulling my rigs at 2.9 – 3.1 MPH.
We have open dates for January. Give us a call 770-827-6282 and book your trophy trip.
