Lake Allatoona Lineside Fishing Report – Jan. 15, 2020

GON Staff | January 15, 2020

Allatoona: Level: 14 feet below summer full pool. Temp: 52 degrees. Clarity: Stained to muddy.

Stripers and Hybrids: Guide Robert Eidson, of First Bite Guide Service, reports, “The lineside bite is good! The bite remains good even after the heavy rains. The north end of the lake is a mud pit. Mid-lake is stained and will probably get worse by the weekend. The fish are moving south searching for cleaner water. Right now a better bite is coming from Bartow Carver to Stamp Creek. This may change, and probably will, as the mud line moves south. The good news is the fish are still biting. Downlining live bait is still very good. Most of the bait is out over the river channel, and so are the fish. Even though our live bait bite remains strong, trolling is as equally as good right now. Both full size umbrella rigs and the Mini Mack’s are fishing great right now. The spoon bite is also good right now, but fishing a spoon works better on schooling fish on the bottom. Suspended fish are tough to catch on a spoon right now.”

The lineside bite has also been good on Carters Lake. These stripers were caught at Carters on Thursday, Jan. 9, part of 225 pounds of fish brought to a First Bite Guide Service boat.
