Hybrids and Striper trips – When these fish are feeding on the surface it’s a fly fisherman’s dream come true! I offer casting instruction for novice fly fisherman and in a short time, you can be taught to present the fly. Often, we will start a trip fly fishing, then as the sun comes up switch to light spinning tackle. I also have a 35-gallon Super Saver 2 bait tank for live shad. Versatility is the key to a productive trip and it will give you an opportunity to learn new techniques that will definitely enhance your own fishing skills. All of the trips are based on a combination of what you want out of your trip and knowledge of the current conditions and patterns on the lake.
Crappie trips – Crappie trips are great for kids and family outings. It’s also a very relaxing way to fish. Here on Lake Oconee, the seasons dictate how we go about catching crappie. From November through March, “long lining” and “spider rigging” are popular methods. Long lining is trolling multiple rods behind the boat and spider rigging in the front of boat is fishing a jig under a weight tipped with a minnow. In January and February, spider rigging yields some huge crappie as the move up the lake to flats. In late March early April, the fish spawn and can easily be taken under a boober with a minnow. Fly fishing for crappie during the spawn can be excellent. In the heat of Summer, the fish will congregate on brush piles and a vertical presentation of a minnow will produce consistently. Of course. Crappie are well known as fine table fare.
