Fishing is good on Allatoona. There are fish mid-lake and at the Allatoona creek arm. In the early morning we have seen some top water. We are catching a few with shad imitation jerk baits when they are on top. Flat- lines and down lines are working depending on the depth of the fish. We have seen some huge schools of hybrids. When these fish pass underneath the boat doubles have been a common occurrence. This week has been great for big stripers as well. Fishing on Allatoona will only improve into April. As the water temp increases. This is my favorite time to be on Allatoona, the hybrids are fattening up and feeding well for the spawn. Here are some pictures of fish caught this weekend with some of my favorite ladies. Visit my site www.gettinluckyfishing.com Call me at 678- 634-3408 to get hooked up. We have a couple open dates in March. We are offering morning and afternoon trips. See you on the water.

"March 11, 2011 LAKE ALLATOONA IS 11.8 FEET, 50 DEGREES AND CLEAR This Lake Allatoona bass fishing guide report has been brought to you exclusively by Matt Driver from www.proanglerradio.com Bass fishing is fair to good even with the cooler weather and the heavy rains this week. The river is very stained and water level have come up. The same patterns still exist and use the shallow crank baits like the Spro Fat John in the oranges and greens. Around Red Top Mountain State Park the water is clearer. We are using the ""nasty shad"" color in the same Spro Fat John. Shallow rocks, brush piles are the best pattern and the jerk bait bite with the Spro McStick is getting better. Fish the on long points and use a slow retrieve. The jig and jig head bite will be picking real soon. “The Southern Fishing Report” By Ken Sturdivant 106 Hickory Ridge 770 889 2654 Cumming, Georgia 30040 http://www.havefunfishing.com/"

"LAKE ALLATOONA IS 11.8 FEET, 50 DEGREES AND CLEAR This Lake Allatoona bass fishing guide report has been brought to you exclusively by Matt Driver from www.proanglerradio.com Bass fishing on Lake Allatoona is great. The crank bait bite is firing up with water temps in the high 50's and low 60s. The river is stained and lake levels are slowly rising so the fish are moving to shallow around wood a chunk rock. The afternoon bite is the best on muddy sun beat banks. Use the Spro Fat John crank bait in the spring craw color. In the clearer water down the lake the jerk bait bit is good for number. The McStick 95 needs to be in the ghost color.

Allatoona Lake Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Very out numbered by spots but can be found in back of coves during the dog days and on points when baitfish move.
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 41 degrees. If you have a chance to get out on the water, you are going to have to fish deep and slow. Jig fishing and Plastic baits may be your best bet this time of year for largemouth bass. You may also try fishing some sinking jerk baits.

Allatoona Lake Smallmouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- not cold enough for small mouth
Smallmouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
With Allatoona Lake at 41 degree water temperature this is a great time to get out on the water and try hitting some deeper primary and secondary points. Smallmouth bass will be feeding at this water temperature but will be much harder to catch. On Sunny warm afternoons its a great time to throw a crank bait, jigs or slow roll a spinnerbait at 5-10 foot on sunny points and drops off of sunny flats. Smallmouth Bass will move into warm water on warm sunny days.

Allatoona Lake Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie fishing is sometimes at its best with the water temperature down this low. Crappie will be in large schools and follow the large shad schools around in extremely deep water. Find the deepest parts of your lake in old river channels and scan your graph for schooling shad. When you find the school, drop your plastics or live bait down to the bottom of the shad and get ready. Many crappie fishermen will be catching awesome numbers and size of fish this time of year. If you are brave enough to get out on the water this time when the water temperature is this cold, it can really pay off. Be careful out there, remember to boat safely. Never take any chances at these temperatures.

Allatoona Lake Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
- Keep bait at the bottom near Boat docks

Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they aren’t going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
