Lake Allatoona Fishing Report July 2006
<P>Linesides are still king! Catching both hybrids and a limited number of stripers early in the morning on live shad, bream, spottail minnows. Look for breaking fish by Red Top and Dam area, on into Stamp, down to Galts Ferry. Have a small Pop'R ready to fling. But as always, live bait puts-em in the cooler-fast... Focus on reef marker poles very close to deep water.
Greenfish are mean, hungry and on the prowl! Allatoona spot fishing right now is on FIRE! Early morning topwater, mid morning on, shallow cranks and soft plastics fished in 40 ft near brush. I've got a few floating rapala's with missing paint from spots blasting them.
Bream & Crappie fishing is very good. I've recently had a stong desire to be a kid myself real soon. That means breaking out the B&N 11 ft crappie rods, some crickets and fishing some marina tires for bream with a old time bobber and all that good stuff. Now thats fishing! And to think how many times I've been pressed to use them as bait lineside fishing..... I want to get back to some basics, thats the best way I know how.
Catfish are on fire! We caught one this morning 12 lbs. Thats a good size channel right there. Fought hard, thought it was a stripe.
