Bass fishing is fair. You can catch a lot of fish just on the small side with worms under docks. Use a dark worm Texas rigged for best results. The buzz bait bite at first light has been picking up all week. Look along any sea wall from the middle of the creeks and coves to the back. You can also use a silver black or shad pattern shad rap. Some fish are starting to move onto the deep water humps late in the day and you can catch them with a Carolina rig green worm. Also large crank baits fished off of the south end humps will produce. Use your Lowrance to locate the humps with fish on them then target the hump with the Carolina rig or the crank bait.

Striper fishing is good. Use your Lowrance to locate the schools of fish in the mouths of the coves and on the humps on the south end of the lake. Live bait (shad) have been the best over the past week. You can also pick up some fish on the pipeline with a spoon when Georgia Power is pulling water. Early morning the spoon bite at the dam has started.

Crappie fishing is very good. The fish are moving into the timber on a early summer pattern. Long lining jigs over timber from 8 to 15 feet deep have been the best producers over the past week. Match your color to the color of the water.

Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs. You can also book your crappie and striper trips as well as on the water Lowrance classes, with Reel Time Service at 404 803 0741 or reeltime@bellsouth.net
