Carters Lake Fishing Report February 2019

GON Staff | January 25, 2019

Carters: Level: 4.9 feet below full pool. Temp: 47-49 degrees. Clarity: About 8 feet of visibility.

Linesides: Guide Robert Eidson, of First Bite Guide Service, reports, “Lineside fishing is good at Carters Lake. Just like Lake Allatoona, Carters has been producing well for us. All the major creeks are holding good schools of stripers and monster hybrids. Live bait is a must right now, but keep a rod ready for topwater. My last three trips to Carters we have caught fish busting topwater. A white fluke has been working best for me, but that’s a secondary bite and isn’t nearly as consistent as the live bait bite. Shad, trout and shiners are all working equally well fish on freelines, planer boards and downlines. This time of year I always run a full spread. I have been starting in the very backs of the creeks in the early a.m. Then I’m working my way out to mid creek by lunch time. Fishing is good right now on Carters. We are even catching a few walleye right now. Watch the weather, and get out there when you can.”
