Hybrids / Stripers – Fishing in June is productive both early morning and in the afternoon. It’s best to start your morning trip at first light. It’s a wonderful experience to be on the lake and watch the sunrise with hardly any other boats on the water.
We will start the trip looking for hybrids and stripers feeding on the surface. If you like to fish spinning rods, we will be throwing popping corks, sassy shads, and even small spoons. If you are a fly fisherman, we use a wiggle minnow for topwater bites and a Cowen’s “Somthin Else” fly for sub surface fish. Nothing beats the rush of catching a hybrid or striper on the surface!
For an afternoon trip, we break out the umbrella rig and fish humps near the dam. Spoons work great at this time as well and is such an easy way to catch these strong fighting fish.
If it is hot, Georgia Power will likely be pulling water. Moving water really gets the fish biting!
Here are some pics from an afternoon late May last year:
Crappie – Long line trolling for crappie over submerged timber is producing good numbers early in the day. As we move closer to June, brush pile fishing is the ticket. We look for submerged timber in fairly deep water. Once we find the structure, we use the spot lock and “jog” feature on the Minn Kota Ulterra trolling motor to position us near (but not over) the brush pile. Then just drop minnows down to catch those slabs.
Book your trip early and enjoy the great fishing on Lake Oconee!
