LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, HIGH 80’S DEGREES

Bass fishing is fair. The lake is full, temperature is 84/88 degrees. Stained up the rivers, clear on the south end. There is an early morning top water bite on sea walls and docks or wood structure. A buzz bait has been out producing other top water baits over the past week. After this bite ends move to the deep water docks and use a football jig under the docks. Shaky heads will also work under the same docks. There is also a deep crank bait bite on the south end deep humps and points.   Line side fishing report by Mark Smith of Reel Time guide service. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Striper/Hybrid fishing is fair. When Georgia Power is pulling water the fishing can be good. The pipe line area of the lake (mid lake) are holding good number of fish. The umbrella rig fished 100 feet behind the boat at 3 mph. There is also a top water bite on points from the dam to above the 44 bridge for the first 2 hours of the day. These are smaller fish but a lot of fun on light tackle.   Crappie fishing is good. The crappie are staging in the timber from 10 to 20 ft. deep. Your Lowrance is critical in locating the school in the timber. If you do not see the fish on your Lowrance keep moving until they show up on the screen. When you see the fish drop a live minnow down to the school.  

Make sure you stop by Sugar Creek Marina and pick up your spoons and all your tackle needs.
