LAKE OCONEE IS FULL, THE LAKE IS CLEAR, TEMPEATURE 86 89

Bass fishing is fair. For the early bite look for mayflies along the banks. Use a Hart Buzz Bait in the white or white/chartreuse color and work around the rocks and where ever you see the flies. Also, use a ¼ ounce chrome and black Rat L Trap in this same area, once the top water bite has slowed. After the morning bite back off to the long points and use a Carolina rigged Zoom finesse or u tail worm. Using 12 pound Trilene line with a 24 to 36 inch leader of 10 pound Trilene line and a ½ ounce weight seem to work best. Fish this bait on the long points 15 to 18 feet deep. The best color worms to use on Oconee are green pumpkin, watermelon, and watermelon candy. The points in the middle of the lake are producing a good number of fish. If the day is overcast don't overlook fishing around the docks in 5 to 7 foot of water using a small crank bait or spinnerbait. Make sure you cast to the back of the walkway and sea walls. The rip rap at Sugar Creek and the Hwy 44 Bridge are holding fish.

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 with Reel Time Service at 404 803 0741 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
