The bite this week has been the best I have seen all year. Our boats have been on a roll all summer, but the past two weeks of fishing has been insane. Our average on most half-day trips has been 25-50 fish. On some days we will go through a 100 plus baits in less than three hours.
Down-lining shad is still the ticket to catching big numbers. Down-lines fished in the mouth of any creek, creek channel or river channel will get you bit. The water temperature is rising and the dissolved oxygen levels are falling. Bait isn’t living very long on a hook fished deeper than 24 feet. So, make sure you carry plenty of bait with you, and be sure to change them often. The better bite is within sight of the dam south to Clark Creek. This is pretty normal for the summertime.
Trolling is Good!! The U-Rig bite is finally getting good. We are starting to see multiple hook-ups on our trips. I am fishing my rigs 120-150 feet behind the boat at speeds of 2.4-3.3 MPH.
The rig bite should be on fire by the end of next week. As I said, our boats are catching very good numbers right now on our half-day trips.
Fishing just doesn’t get any better than it is right now. Give us a call and book your family outing today. 770 827-6282.
