Ocmulgee PFA Fishing Report – March 2008

GON Staff | February 27, 2008

Ocmulgee PFA: Level: About 5 feet below full. Temp.: 51-53 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Good and getting better, said Mike Neal, who fished Ocmulgee PFA with his tournament partner on Feb. 24. “We found that the fish were holding on structure around points in around 4 to 8 feet of water,” Mike said. “Using a DT6 in the spring-bluegill color and a Lucky Craft in a silver and blue, we caught three fish between 6.2 pounds to 6.5 pounds and a kicker of between 10 and 10.5 pounds. Some other fish were being caught off of shallow wood with a white Trick Worm. Be sure to hit the structure with the crankbait — pause it and be ready. A big F-1 is only a cast away. When the water temp. climbs above 60 degrees, fish a white or bubblegum Trick Worm slowly in the shallow standing timber or brushpiles slowly. Also run a Strike King buzzbait early and late for some great springtime topwater action.”

Fair, according to Mike. “Fish the normal white-and-pink corked jig heads in the deeper timber, or slow troll on the upper end with white-and-black jigs for some action.”
