PAUL PARSONS GUIDES FOR BASS, STRIPER, HYBRID, CRAPPIE AND BIG CATFISH
Lake Level - Full Pool 635.00 - Today's Level 635.67
LARGEMOUTH BASS / SPOTTED BASS - Good - Some Largemouth Bass up the river
are still going on the beds due to cooler water temps. Fish the backs of pockets that
have feeder creeks and ditches with lizards, flukes and trick worms. Most of the main
lake Largemouth have spawned and are holding in blowdowns and shallow brush
piles. Try Texas-rigged lizards, jig and pigs, buzz baits or spinner baits. Spotted Bass
fishing is also good on the main lake along gravel banks and points with Carolina-
rigged finesse worms.
STRIPERS / HYBRIDS - Excellent - Big Stripers are still running up the river. Fish live
and cut shad along the sandbars and bends in the river channel from Potato Creek
up to Franklin. We're also catching good numbers of Stripers, Hybrids and White
Bass down on the main lake humps and flats on live shad. Book your trip today!
CRAPPIE - Excellent - Crappie fishing is excellent around brush piles with minnows
and trolling with jigs in the major creeks. Be sure to visit our newest bait shop,
Georgia Boy/Girl Outdoors for all your Crappie fishing bait and supplies. They are
located on New Franklin Rd. in LaGrange and the phone number is 706-407-6544.
CATFISH - Excellent - Fishing for Flathead Catfish is great upriver. We have been
catching lot's of nice Flatheads up to 30 pounds. The best bait for Flatheads is live
gizzard shad or bream fished in the deep holes. Channel and Blue Catfish are also
biting good all over the lake. The best bait for Channel and Blue Cats is cut shad.
