Here are the dates I have open in November:  25, 26, 28, 29, 30. I am also booking for December, which should be the peak of the ditch bite! The water temperatures have started to drop with the cooler nights and more seasonable high temperatures. The surface temps sit around 65 degrees and falling, and the water level continues to drop as the corp continues to pull water and we get no rain.  We now sit at 9.38 feet down from full pool.  The topwater bite is starting to fade, as expected.  We are still seeing schooling fish on some days, but these are often just stripers, with a few spots mixed in at times.  The stripers, and the spots in some cases, that are schooling right now seem to be focused on the small threadfin shad. Therefore they will often ignore your typical topwater offerings.  Casting a jigging spoon into these fish is one way to imitate the small bait.  There are some other options as well, but it just takes some experimentation to figure out what they will eat. Think small and be creative. We are getting some good fish early in the mornings throwing a spinnerbait on windblown rock and clay points.  I look for the Spro Crankbait bite to pick up soon as well on those same style points.  There are still fish hanging around the brush throughout the lake, and and can be caught a number of different ways.  A swimbait and a jerkbait have both worked well at times this past week, and we are starting to have good success with both a Chattahoochee Jig and a Picasso Shakedown jighead in the area of the brush as well.   With the lake down, I look for a great ditch bite as the water continues to cool, so keep an eye out for the bait making their way into the creek arms. That will be the indication to shift your areas of focus.  We have started to spoon up some fish out of the timber, or near the timber, in creek arms/ditches in 30-40 feet.  The process is starting to happen. I look for this to strengthen as we continue into fall, and once the bait gets well established in the ditches, look for the SuperSpin bite shallow in the ditches first thing in the morning to be a predominant pattern.  A jerkbait in these areas should work well also.  We have a great fall fishing experience in store folks!  I am now guiding in a Brand New Xpress Bass Boat – 21’3″ powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO and equipped with the latest Lowrance HDS Gen III units featuring 3D Structure Scan technology.  Come take a ride in this beauty!   Here are the dates I have open in November:  25, 26, 28, 29, 30. I am also booking for December, which should be the peak of the ditch bite. Give me a call and let’s get out and have some fun! If you have been waiting for the fall bite, its here, and its time to FISH! Thanks to all and May God Bless.
