Paradise PFA Fishing Report – June 2009

GON Staff | May 27, 2009

Paradise PFA: Levels: All lakes are full. Temp: 74 degrees. Clarity: Lightly stained.

Bass: Slow. Bass fishing is slower than usual this time of year, but decent catches have recently come from lakes Bobben and Patrick. There are a few reports of bass hitting buzzbaits and topwater lures in the early morning. Concentrate on shallows and along weed lines.

Catfish: Slow. Lakes Horseshoe 1, Horseshoe 2 and Tacklebuster have given up a few catfish, although fishing has been somewhat slow. Most anglers are using liver and mullet gut. Late June has been good in the past using the big catawba worms for bait. Check the catalpa trees along the entrance road for worms, and please only take what you need.

Good. Bream fishing has been very good the last couple weeks. Bluegills have been biting on all the lakes, with the best quality fish coming from lakes Horseshoe 3 and 4 and Lake Tacklebuster. Crickets have taken most of the bluegills, while worms have worked best for shellcrackers. Lake Patrick has been the best destination for shellcrackers. Expect good-sized shellcrackers to be caught off beds in early June.

Note: The annual Tifton Kiwanis Kids Fishing Event will be held on June 13. Fishing starts at 7:30 a.m. Contact the Paradise PFA office at (229) 533-4792 for more information.
