Fishing is great right now! Catching limits of Sandies, with a lot of Crappie, Hybrids, Black Bass, Blue and Channel Cats, Yellow Bass, Gar and Drum mixed in. They’re “ROUGHLY” in the same spot(s) every day. Some days they want live shad. Some days they hit lures better. Some days they want heavy in-line spinners. Some days they want crank baits. Some days they can’t stay off the jig and bobber. (1/16th w/ tiny fluke) When you get there, you just have to experiment and find out what they want to bite the best, and where the main school of fish is hanging. It varies a little bit every day, but as stated above, they’re in the same general area. You can catch fish, just about ANYWHERE on the river right now, but you HAVE to do some trial and error, and bounce around, if you want to catch numbers. If you just walk up and stand in one spot, you’re probably not going to limit, or it’s going to take FOREVER to get a limit. If you move around, and study the water, you should be able to locate the fish no problem, and have no issues catching them. THEY’RE HUNGRY! If you don’t get bit within 5-10 minutes. MOVE. The fish don’t sit in one spot. They’ll move in, work one area, get the shad spooked and scattered, and then move off to the next spot, and so on… If you’re not catching fish, you’re doing something wrong. Plain and simple. Biggest mistake I see out here right now, is guys throwing 1/16-1/2oz lures, on 15-20+lb line. That line is way too freaking heavy. The lighter your line, the quicker/easier it sinks in the current. If you’re using heavier line, the slower it falls, and you’re drifting right over the top of the fish. 4-8lb line is ALL YOU NEED. I personally use 4lb fluorocarbon. (Seagaur or Vanish) My client-rods, I start out with 4lb line, and if they are having trouble with break-offs, I jump up to 6 or 8lb line, just to help rip the fish out of that strong current. I have had no issues catching EVERYTHING out there on 4lb line. Just set your drag correctly, and play the fish. Saturday, I caught a 12+lb drum on a light action rod, with 4lb line. I refuse to go any higher. Best time is the last 45 minutes-hour before dark. The fish start boiling, and shad are flying out the water until dark, and it usually gets pretty tough once it’s completely dark. If you are still having trouble figuring them out, give us a shout, and we will get you on some fish, and teach you all you need to know to get out there, and wear these fish out on your own, time and time again. What we teach you, you’ll be able to do every time, and produce numbers.

Yesterday was on fire. Nick and I got to the river about 6:00pm. Started out fishing lures, and we were catching them, fairly steady. Started seeing a few fish busting shad out of the water, so we threw our net, and loaded up on some fresh live threadfins, and it was a fish almost as soon as it hit the water, until we left at dark. We each had our limit of Sandies in about 30 minutes. It was a blast!

Another day, same results. Today you had to have shad. NOBODY caught today except for us. Fish are definitely still hungry! Give us a shout!
