    LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 7.6 FEET, 60’S, CLEAR


    Bass fishing is fair to good. This month bass are moving out deeper and continuing to follow migrating shad patterns. Look for the Lowrance to show the suspended bass. The Float n Fly and jerk bait bites are getting good. As water temps drop into the low 50’s and sometimes into the high 40’s by the end of the month, fish activity tends to slow, but the bite is still good. We target main lake bluff walls and secondary points near channel swings. This time of year, the bite can be hit or miss, especially after a strong cold front where we have bluebird’s skies. Many times when the bite gets tough rely on the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology along with the world’s best sonar and fish a drop shot. We use 6 pound test Sunline Sniper Fluorocarbon with a 3/16 or ½ ounce weight with a Gamakatsu drop shot hook and a Big Bite Limit Maker in silver and blue. The bite can be light, so be on guard. Fish from Stamp Creek north to Little River.

    Line side fishing is good and getting better. The fall bite is starting to heat up. The north end of the lake is still producing some nice stripers, along with good numbers of white bass. The bigger stripers are eating gizzard shad fished on planer boards and free lines right at sunup and again at sundown. Look for these fish from Little River up to Fields Landing and as far south as Kellogg’s. The hybrids and white bass are really starting to school and blowing up all over the lake right now. We have seen some big schools breaking the surface from the dam to the S turns. These busting fish will eat almost anything you throw at them. When these fish go down, they will still bite threadfins and small gizzards fished on downlines, as well as spoons. Bait is starting to get really hard to net, so be sure to take some with you. Striper Soup has plenty of fresh shad of all sizes in stock. The seagulls are starting to show up and will make finding the fish a little easier for us over the upcoming holiday break. Remember, Allatoona has very few loons. If you see birds diving on Allatoona, this normally means there are lineside nearby. If you troll, keep pulling your Mack Farr u rigs 60 to 120 feet behind the boat at speeds between 2.4 3.1 mph.
