It’s our time of year! Recreational boaters are all but gone, it is cooler, and the bite will just get better through the fall and winter. Come on out for stripers, hybrids, or crappie fishing! All trips $300.00 half day! E-mail the dates you want to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 404-317-9556.
Crappie – The long line bite has finally taken off. However, right now they are in submerged timber. I use Curtis Hobbs jigs with lite wire hooks so the hook will easily bend off when you get hung up on a tree. This is a great trip for 3 anglers and an easy way to fish. Trolling 8 rods out of the back of the boat, clients can just relax and reel in the crappie! As we move into November and beyond, I’ll be pushing jigs out of the front of the boat. This is a great trip for 2 anglers, and you have the opportunity to catch some very large crappie. I push 8 14-foot rods on millennium rod holders and two very comfortable millennium seats. All the angler has to do is lift the rod and put the crappie on ice!
Hybrids and Stripers / Spin Fishing – As of this writing the temperature is finally beginning to drop and as we move into late fall and winter hybrid / striper fishing will pick up significantly. This is the time of year when we can long line live shiners and crank baits for larger fish. There is also often a topwater bite and throwing white rooster tales or sassy shad jigs to the rising fish is a blast!
Hybrids and Stripers / Fly Fishing – In late October, if we are blessed with water being is pumped up from Lake Sinclair early in the morning, fly fishing will be good. In November when the gulls show up, I will be chasing the birds and throwing a Cowen’s “Somethin Else” fly on sink tip. In December, there are times when the fly rod will out produce other methods of fishing.
Book your trip early and enjoy the great fall and winter fishing on Lake Oconee!
