Line-side fishing is Slow!
The bite on Allatoona this week is the same as last week: nonexistent for numbers. But there are a few big fish being caught.
The lake is looking better but there is still about 80% of the lake that is still muddy or heavily stained. The water temps are in the upper thirties to the low forties and the shad kill has started. Catching numbers of line-sides right now is just not going to happen. But there’s a chance to boat a really big fish right now, if you’re willing to devote the time.
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.
The bigger fish are more out to eat mid-to-large Shad and trout fished on planer boards and free-lines. These bites are very few and far between, but if you stay with it you can catch a trophy fish this time of year.
If you’re wanting to catch a wall hanger, then the time is now. I still have plenty of dates open for February.
Give me a call at 770 827-6282 and let’s go catch the fish of your dreams!
