Allatoona Crappie Fishing Report – May 24, 2023

GON Staff | May 26, 2023

Lure-maker Robert DeHaas, of Red Rooster Custom Baits, reports, “I fished mid-lake above Victoria, the water temperature was 75.1, and the water clarity was Allatoona green with good visibility. The fish this evening were 8 to 10 feet deep on or around just above the brushpiles. The bite is still slow—you just need to swim the jig slowly to get the fish to bite. Cast a 1/16-oz. jig head beyond the structure and keep the jig just above the brush without hanging up. I have numerous brushpiles in the area to check, and not every pile had active fish that wanted to come out and play. I’m still using BlueGrass color in several baits—Slab Dragon Kic’nChic’n swimbait and Small Fry cut down to 1.5 inches. No real big fish this evening, mostly in the small size, 8 to 9 inches. You need to fish early, be off by 11 a.m. Or the evening bite is definitely picking up. Lord Bless. Get out there and wet a line.”
