Lake Allatoona fishing report for November 14, 2019
Friends, it's cold outside! The good news is, it's just the right amount of cold for fantastic Striper and Hybrid fishing here on Lake Allatoona. Current Lake levels are holding around 831' with surface temperatures between 53-55° lake-wide. The sights and sounds of nature are simply exquisite this time of year. Soaring eagles, turkeys gobbling and deer and fox playing on the ridges are just a few of our God given treats.
The fish have been active for the majority of the morning and afternoon this past week. We have a good concentration of bait and fish loaded up in the main channel from Little River down to Victoria and holding outside of Kellogg Creek and Galts Ferry. There are plenty of hybrids, stripers, white bass and spotted bass to provide hours of entertainment on your excursion.
Every technique we have used is triggering strikes, from working small Flexi spoons as well as larger flutter spoons through the schools, trolling A rigs and U rigs through the strike zone, to live bait presentations of all size shad on the down lines and free lines.
While the 'Allatoona specials' are out in force, there are bigger fish mixed in with these schools as well as some of the larger fish hunting 2-3 in a pack. If you want to tie into one, you'll have to get your mind right and brave a little nip to the air.
If you'd like to ease into a day of fishing with a full service guide on any day during the week, we're here for you with arms wide open. You work hard all week. Your fishing adventure should be joyful and full of fun. Stepping onto a boat that has everything you need, including fish-producing honey holes, may be just what the doctor ordered (or you should self-prescribe)! From first-timer to pro, we have your Adventure covered here at Heron Outdoors. Oh, and we are still adding an extra hour to all Adventures in November :)
