Bass
The bass fishing has been a little tough the last few days. With the cooler air temps it seems like most of the bigger fish are deep. We have been catching some Spotted Bass on Drop Shot over a 28 to 30 ft bottom close to brush and rock ledges. Try using a small Fluke Jr on a drop shot right working these areas slowly. We have also caught a few fish drop shotting Bass Shinnners.
Walleye
The Walleye should start moving up shallower as the water cools over the next couple weeks. Most of these fish have been hanging out on a 40 to 60 ft bottom and are hard to catch during the summer months. The trolling should start up as the water temps near the 60 deg mark.
Good Luck!

Brown Trout
The trout bite has picked up the last few days. With all the recent rains these fish have been feeding on top when we have cloud cover. We have been casting a Kastmaster spoon for these surfacing fish. Be prepared to hook into some heavy fish! Try letting the spoon sink for a couple of seconds then a slow jerking retrieve back towards the boat. We have also been catching a few Brown Trout free lining Blue Back Herring. Try letting the baits out 60 to 80 ft behind the boat. We like to maintain a speed of .8 to 1mph. This keeps the baits strait and allows them to dive a little. Look for this pattern to continue and the fish to start feeding more hours during the day.

Lake Chatuge Fishing

Lake Chatuge Fishing Guides
The Hybrid Bass bite has been unreal lately on Lake Chatuge. We have been catching these fish over a 30 to 40ft bottom. Spoons have been the ticket lately. Use a fast jig retrieve up and down in the water column. Lake Chatuge located in Hiawasse Ga is absolutely breathtaking if you have never ventured out on it. Come join us for a Lake Chatuge Fishing Excursion!

Lake Lanier Fishing

The South Lake Lanier bite is on fire right now. The Striped Bass are in bigger schools now that the water temps have risen into the mid to upper 80’s. We have caught some really nice Stripes on Parker spoons lately. The Lanier Spotted Bass have been eating the spoon on the surface. We have been using a fast surface type retrieve when catching the Bass.
Good luck!

Bass

The Bass have finally worked into a summer pattern. These fish are hanging in the 20 to 30ft depths. Drop shooting a Robo worm ( morning dawn color) has been very effective for us. Try working grass flats in the backs of creeks. We have also had success working brush with jerk baits off of the main lake channel. An Underspin (White Super Spin) tipped with a albino fluke is always a go to bait this time of year. I like this this bait because we catch bass and trout on these lures. Try throwing the Underspin in the 20ft depths and working it slowly just above the bottom back towards the boat through the 30ft water column.

Yellow Perch
The Perch have congregated in deeper water over the last week or so. These fish are bitting anything dropped to them. We have caught them on Crappie minnows, drop shot rigs with small flukes. Crappie jigs small brass colored spoons etc… The key to catching a message of Yellow Perch is is being able to locate them on the electronics. I spend a significant amount of time scanning the floor of the lake before dropping baits. Keep a Crappie jig or panfish jig handy when scouting for Perch. Start off looking for grass in the 18 to 22ft depths. This is where most of the Perch will be hanging out. The bigger Perch seem to be a little deeper 20 to 30ft. This pattern should continue for the next few weeks.

Good Luck!

Trout
The Brown Trout are numerous this season. Getting these fish to eat has been a little tricky. Crappie minnows has been the most effective way of fishing for the trout so far this summer. We have seen some really big schools but are only catching a few fish out of a school. Hopefully the Brown Trout will fire up as the waters temp reach the low 80’s. The trolling bite should take off soon. These fish will be congregated on the south regions of the lake.
