GEORGIA: Allatoona – Best Bite has Been on Jigging Spoons

Great.

The bite this week is the same as last week’s but seems to be better for size and numbers.

The lake is in the process of turning over and all the action is on the north end of the lake right now.

We have been catching most of our fish on the bottom ” 8- to 20 “-feet deep on the flats from Little River to Fields Landing, the fish will gradually start moving back downlake. The fish are relating to the bottom.

The best bite has been on jigging spoons dropped to the bottom and then twitched up about 6 inches.

The bite will come as the spoon falls. I like a 3/4- or 1-oz. Flex-It in chrome with either white or chartreuse. Spoons are catching a mixed bag of hybrids, stripers and white bass, and we are even catching a few big catfish in the same area. It’s not uncommon to boat 30 or 40 fish. The fish will also hit live bait, and the gizzards and threadfins are easy to catch in Little River.

You just have to get there before sun-up. Linesides are hitting shad both on downlined and freelines. With the down rods being the better biteā€¦.
