CLARKS HILL IS DOWN 6.1 FEET, LOW 80’S

Bass fishing is good. The early morning bite is good and it dies off around 10:00 a.m. If the wind is blowing, move to the points and the mouths of the creeks and coves and use top water and crank baits. Fronts are moving through and fishing two days before a front will definitely be the best time to go. Blue bird skies are in the forecast for this weekend and without any wind. This can drive the bass to cover and quick. If this happens, break out the jigs, worms and Shakey Heads and pick the rocks and wood apart. Fish these baits shallow at less than about five feet deep on these sunny days.

LAKE LANIER IS DOWN 6.4 FEET, THE CREEKS ARE STAINED AND THE MAIN LAKE IS CLEAR & 80’S

This report brought to you by Jimbo On Lanier 770 5427764 www.jimboonlanier.com

Bass fishing is fair. The water temperatures and level continue to drop as the nights are getting a cooler and the water is dropping. We are in store for an excellent fall fishing experience as the lake continues to drop and the cooler weather has arrived. Not much has changed in terms of our approach since last week, the fishing has just gotten better. We have still been targeting Largemouth for the first 90 minutes or so of the day. We have been focusing shallow in pockets and on points for these fish. Topwater poppers, a Prop Bait, a swim jig, and a small shallow diving Spro crankbait have all worked in these areas. As you would expect, the fish have been very shallow. After the early morning bite, we have been working humps and points with close access to deep water. Fish are typically around areas with brush, but not always. The topwater and swimbait bite over the brush is really improving and you can expect a response from any active fish within the first few casts. If you get no response on top, switch to a SuperSpin and swim the bait around and over the brush. Also a Picasso Swim Jig and a Spro Jerkbait have been great around the brush when the fish won’t come all the way to the top. Focus on both main lake and creek mouth points and humps, and remember sometimes the fish are relating specifically to the brush, so make sure to work the brush thoroughly as well. Brush in 20 to 30 feet has been most productive this week. The Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology can sweep these areas and show you the schools of bait and the fish close by. The schooling bite down south is really starting to pick up and should only get stronger as we go into October. We look for some great action in the next few weeks, as well as an early ditch bite this year with the water down low. We are fired up for this fall! I am now guiding in a Brand New Xpress Bass Boat 21’3″ powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO. Come take a ride in this beauty! My October dates are filling up fast make sure to reserve your October date TODAY! Here is what I have left open in October: 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 17, 20, 21, 27, 30. Give me a call and let’s get out and have some fun! If you have been waiting for the fall bite, it’s here, and it’s time to FISH! Thanks to all and May God Bless.

Striper fishing has been fair this week. The lake surface temperature remains in the low 80’s. The unusual hot temperatures this summer has stressed the Stripers and the fishermen. If we can get to the mid 70 degree water temperature the Stripers will be free to move out of there summertime refuge and aggressively feed lake wide on the abundance of shallow bait. Until we see the lake temperature drop the pattern will remain the same as it have been over the last couple of weeks. The first 2 hours of the morning is your best shot at boating a few stripers. After that the fishing becomes really tough. The Stripers are up in the water column and are strung out in the 30 to 40 foot range. There continues to be no single technique that works well all the time. Live Blueback Herring on down rods, trolling with lead core and Umbrella rigs and Power reeling with Herring or Ben Parker spoons should be tried before giving up and going hunting. If you can find a school of Stripers vertical in the water column then down rod fishing with Blueback Herring has been working. Trolling with lead core line and umbrella rigs is a good way to cover a lot of water. Set your lead core line 8 to 9 colors back with a 1 ounce buck tail jig and a 50 foot leader. Try tipping your jigs with live Herring, and different color shad bodies. If you have a specific question concerning Stripe Bass fishing on Lake Lanier send us an email and if possible we will address it in a future fishing report. Six Mile Creek, Four Mile Creek, Flowery Branch, Big Creek Shoal Creek, Baldridge Creek and the river channel are all good places to start. The water temperature is in the low 80’s. The water is lightly stained in the creeks and clear on the main lake. The lake is 6.5 feet below full pool.

LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 2.2 FEET, 80’S & CLEAR

This bass fishing port is by Matt Driver.

Bass fishing is good. Our bass feeding up for the winter. We see a good bit of surface activity and schooling. This month the creeks and deeper pockets become productive. Even though the fall has been warm thus far, everything appears to be a normal fall pattern. This month you can catch fish on your favorite method. Get out the swim baits. Use the Triple Trout and the Spro BBZ. Make sure you use a proper rod, reel and line. Paralleling bluff walls is a great technique to use with a swimbait. The soft plastic jerkbait is good. A white or pink 5 inch Big Bite Jerk Minnow fished with a fast, erratic retrieve is working well. The upper lake from Galts to Little River has been the best area. This area should stay good until the water drops a few more feet.

This striper and hybrid report fishing report has been brought to you exclusively by Robert Eidson of First Bite Service, 770 827 6282. www.firstbite service.com eidson6260@gmail.com

Line side fishing is good. The striper and hybrid bite has slowed down some in the last two weeks. The fish are on the move and can be anywhere from the dam to the S turns. The live bait bite is decent, but our better bite has been on the umbrella rigs. We are targeting long flats, humps and brush piles between 18 and 34 feet deep. The white bass fishing is good. Whites are starting to school up and are starting to bust topwater early morning and again in the late afternoon. The flats across from the mouth of Kellogg’s and out in front of Galts are loaded on most days. Popping corks, tiny flukes and spoons are the ticket right now. The key to catching numbers is spooling light and making very long casts. When the fish go down, try bouncing a 1/2 ounce spoon off the bottom

JACKSON LAKE IS DOWN .33 FEET, CLEAR & 80’S

Bass fishing is fair. Bass are starting to move and use the top water baits, crank baits and the plastic worms. Start off the morning up in the rivers or large creeks and try to find moving water. Throw Pop R’s and Zara Spooks into the shallows along the smaller feeder creek areas. The larger coves are producing the better bass and they are still hanging around the docks and wood found in these areas. Use the Shad Raps in fire tiger or silver gold color. Cast these baits alongside the docks and lay downs, especially those near deep water. Work the end of the lay downs with the top water first and follow it up with the RS Shad Rap. Some of the bass are taking the top water but most of the bites are coming on the follow up Shad Rap. Vary the retrieve and find out which one works best. Another good method to use this week is a Texas rig red shad color Zoom U tail worm. Green pumpkin for sure. After fishing the docks with the top water and cranks, pitch or flip this worm under and on both sides of as many docks you can find. More spots are hitting these worms than largemouth.

LAKE OCONEE IS 2 FEET LOW, THE LAKE IS CLEAR, LIGHT STAIN UP THE LAKE INTO THE RIVER TEMPRATURE 80 TO 85

Bass fishing is fair. At first light fish a buzz bait on sea walls and rip rap from the middle of the Coves and creeks out to the main lake. White or white/chartreuse have been the best color. Then switch to a shaky head and fish it under the deep water docks. Some fish are starting to move into the creeks from the 44 bridge south. You can target them with the same shaky head.

Striper report by Captain Mark Smith, Reel Time service. Call 404 803 0741
reeltime@bellsouth.net

Striper fishing is poor. There are some small fish feeding at the dam first thing in the morning. You can catch these fish on spoons. There are also some fish showing up on the pipeline in the afternoons when Georgia Power is pulling low water. The same spoons are working there.

Crappie fishing is good. The fish have moved into their summer locations. Look on the creek ledges as well as in the deeper timber. Use your Lowrance structure scan to locate the timber with the crappie in it. Once you locate the fish you can use a jig or drop a live bait into the school.

The lake is very low watch out for stumps. All ramps are still open just use caution. Fall fishing is starting to pick up and now is the time to book your trip with Reel Time Guide Service at 404 803 0741 or reeltime@bellsouth.net.

September 29, 2016

WEST POINT LAKE IS DOWN 4.4 FEET, CLEAR & 80’S

Bass fishing is fair. The water temperatures will cool down and this will bring the bass shallow moving up into the coves. Use the top water baits like the Zara Spooks and the buzz baits. Look for largemouth and spots on points, roadbeds and back in the coves gravelly areas. Wehadkee Creek is a good area to fish and this lower lake area is clear. This week the mid lake area around Highland Marina up to marker #95 is a great all day area. Be sure to fish any wood on the banks. Wood can hold bait fish and the bass will go after them when there is any wind blowing across them.

LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, CLEAR, 80’S

Bass fishing is good. Top water lures and buzz baits are working every morning. A good approach is to use both a small and large buzz bait. And perhaps a standard Pop R and a large Chug Bug. Try a Mann’s Baby One Minus reeled fast. The bites have come from main river banks to near the back of coves and the seawalls. Docks and boathouses are holding fish that are hitting jigs, soft plastics, and some on crank baits. Primary points and flats along the creek runs and secondary points in coves are beginning to hold fish that are slowly headed farther in. Crank baits or Carolina rigs will usually catch a few of these structure holding groups of fish. Depths of these fish are varying from about 6 to 12 feet deep up the lake to 10 to 20 feet deep down the lake. Rip rap continues to hold a few fish, also. Crank baits, lightweight Texas rigs, and jig head and worm rigs are good.

LAKE GEORGE IS FULL, 80’S

Bass fishing is good. Carolina rigged Zoom finesse worms and Texas rigged Old Monsters are good all day baits on the Texas rig and the Carolina rig. Early each day go to the shallow grass and use the buzz baits, Zoom Horny Toads and Zoom Z Nails. Be sure to peg the sinkers on the Texas rigs so the baits are all one piece rigs. Fish are moving into the coves and can be caught with shad imitation lures like Rat L Traps and Rooster Tails. During the day the bass are moving out deeper and can be caught using crank baits and Carolina rigged worms.

The Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology can sweep these areas and show you the schools of bait and the fish close by. Crank baits, Carolina rigs and jig head and worm rigs are the fair.

LAKE SEMINOLE IS DOWN .9 FEET, CLEAR & 80’S

The bass fishing report is by Matt Bay.

Bass fishing is slow. The bite has gotten somewhat tough on the Lake right now and it is mainly due from fishing pressure and hot weather that just won’t go away. A good way to catch some finicky fish right now is to use a Spro McStick 95 Jerkbait on a spinning rod with 8 pound Sunline FC Sniper fluorocarbon. The McStick 95 floats slowly and 2 good colors are Spooky Shad and Clear Chartreuse. You are sure to get some bites with this technique from all sizes of fish. If you are looking for larger bass, you can flip grass lines on the main lake and Spring Creek. When flipping, just flip the points and the cuts in the grass. Use a 1 1/4 ounce Tungsten Weight, a bobber stopper, and a 5/0 Gamakatsu Super line hook. It is hard to beat a Big Bites Baits Real Deal Craw or Fighting Frog. Early mornings or late evenings fish will bite a spinnerbait pretty good such as a 3/8 Buddha Blade in white.
