Line-side fishing is Good.
The full-moon phase we had last week really slowed the bite. It is starting to rebound and hopefully it will be back to normal by this weekend.
The fish are scattered in the water column anywhere from 13 feet to 40 feet deep, between Bartow Carver and Clarks Creek.
Shad, shiners and bream are all working, but Threadfins and Gizzard shad are hard to beat.
Make sure you catch your bream on hook and line, and be sure to carry plenty of bait and change it often. Frisky bait is the key to putting more fish in the boat.
Trolling is working very good right now. For me, there is nothing better than the Mack Farr u-rig. I have had some really good days here lately pulling these rigs. Also single buck-tails fished about 150 feet behind the boat at 2.4 MPH will get you bit.
Topwater is good early in the morning and late in the afternoon. A white rooster tail is hard to beat. It is working well on Hybrids, Stripers and schooling spots.
Call me and we’ll catch you some fish!
