GEORGIA: Seeing Some Great Top Water at Times

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

The fishing on Lake Lanier has been very good overall, since my last report.

Our boats have done well on freelined bluebacks out over the channel and on points and humps. We are seeing some great top water at times and a Spro Mc Stick and a freelined blueback are working well on these surfacing fish. We’ve also caught a few on top using a Redfin and a Spook. Mid-lake and south have been best on my boat. There are some nice stripers in the very backs of creeks, but we’ve mostly been further on out on the main lake. We’ve also been catching and releasing some super magnum spots that are out swimming with the stripers. Check out our Twitter page to see a 7 pound spot that we weighed and released. The crappie fishing has also been very good. Our crappie guide has been doing well on minnows and jigs around brush. We will be open for morning and afternoon trips daily during spring great.

The fishing has been very good and it’s a great time of the year to bring a kid or elderly person out for some warm weather fun.

CALIFORNIA: East Delta – Top Water & Frog Bite has Started to Explode

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

EAST DELTA
(Stockton) With the surface temperature on the San Joaquin River rising rapidly with the recent heat wave, the top water and frog bite has started to explode.

Randy Pringle, the Fishing Instructor, reported a staggered top water bite, meaning anglers will have to throw a variety of top water plugs, frogs, or buzzbaits to find the feeding fish.

On Thursday, June 23, he found good action with Furbet the Frog in the bluegill pattern for largemouths to 5 pounds working the runways- the strip between weeds and rocks. As the surface temperatures have risen to 71 degrees in the main river, the best action has been on the outside weed lines on the high tides and in the deeper holes on the low tide.

The overall temperature has started to stabilize which has allowed the fish to settle. Pringle has been focusing on rocks or weeds with the bass holding tight to the structure. There is a tremendous amount of small fry in the water, and male bass are protecting the fry with females also holding nearby.
The newly developed Persudaer Imaged Spoon, Berkeley Power Worm on a Zappu head, the Timber Tiger DC2 crankbait or the Crazy Leg Chigger Craw in black/red are all good alternatives to topwater lures.

Captain Mike Gravert of Intimidator Sportfishing has been drifting bluegill or jumbo minnows for stripers to 25 pounds in the past week in the northeast Delta.

There have been few trolling reports in the San Joaquin, but Captain Stan Koenigsberger of Quetzal Adventures has been picking up striped bass to 25 inches with regularity on fresh shad in the deeper water of the San Joaquin River.
