LAKE ALLATOONA IS FULL, STAINED & 80’S BY MATT DRIVER
Bass fishing is slow and most anglers are fishing at night due to the heat. In the evening, you can fish small top water baits such as a Rico or Jackall SK Pop Grande. Be sure to use shad colors. Fish these baits on main lake points or around the shady places on the steep rock walls. As the evening progresses, switch to a big crank bait like a Spro Little John DD or a Norman DD 22. A good color choice is Nasty Shad. Fish this crank bait on the steeper points. The best option for catching fish right now is to fish any brush or cover 15 to 25 feet deep with a 6 inch Robo Worm. Good colors seem to be Red Crawler and Martin’s Madness. You can also cast a Jig in these same areas. Fish a smaller jig such a Bass Patrol or the locally made Spanky’s jig.
Line side fishing is excellent. 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. There are two bites going on right now. The first one is from the dam to Holiday Marina. The other one is from the mouth of Kellogg's to Bartow Carver. Trolling is good also. The umbrella rig bite is finally taking off. We are starting to see multiple hook ups on our trips. We are fishing my rigs 120 to 150 feet behind the boat at speeds of 2.4 to 3.3 MPH. The rig bite should be on fire by the end of next week. 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.
