Hybrid Stripers are still very active. We caught 12 nice Hybrids along with Stripers, White Perch & Spotted Bass. Fish are feeding between 30-40ft and still striking Alabama Rigs. Hot locations are Mile Marker 7 & 13 running in the river channels. All fish were catch and release. Happy Fishing.
I tried to explain to people that it was going to rain this morning at the coast, but not where I was going to go fishing. Oh no, it's going to rain and I don't want to fish in the rain. Ok, BoBo and I got in the truck and we went fishing by ourselves. And thankfully, I was right..... It never rained the whole time BoBo and I were fishing....
Can anyone tell me what times of the year are best for fishing at Lake Jordan. I have fished mostly spring and gotten cats, crappie and bass. Just wondered what kind of fishing there is in other seasons. I don't have a boat so mainly fish from the shore or pier. Thanks for the info.
It was about 11:45 Saturday morning when I cut the belly out of a large gizzard shad. It took about fifteen minutes until he bit the bait. I missed the first time but got him a minute later and was up against the fight of my life. It lasted about five minutes and he didn't surface till about the last two minutes. We had him up against the dock and got The Fish Grip on him. He weighed 46 pounds....
The striper fishery on LKN may not be all the way back, but it's on its way. The new hybrids are doing great, with good topwater action many days. They can be caught deep on live bait or artificials when tehy are not near the surface. The stripers that remain are good size, for LKN, with 10-13 lb'ers mixed in with the 5-8 lb. fish. Though the hybrids are reaching legal length, please practice....
This is a 17 lb 10 oz Blue we caught today out of High Rock. He was caught in the main river channel on the bottom. He bit a 6 inch whole shad. I have fished for years in High Rock and this is only the second one we've ever caught. The other one was 5 lb and we caught him on a jug. We caught 15 cats today from 3:30 pm to 8 pm. A few channels but mostly flatheads ranging from 5 pounds to 25.8....
Winter fishing is going very well at both Norman & James. On Norman, spotted bass, stripers, hybrids & cats are feeding aggressively on large schools of small shad & herring midway to the backs of major creeks in 20-50 ft of water. Match the hatch with live shad, herring or shiners fished throughout the water column as needed. Numerous artificials are effective - jigs, Alabama rigs,....
Grabbed a few and lost a few...And was able to talk my Daughter into going today and we had a blast...with everyone in the water we didn't have a video man but still took a few pictures before we released them back. Guessing 1 was around 30 and other was about 20ish
On My days off I've been Cat-fishing for some R&R (Rod&Reel)relaxation and recently caught my personal 2nd Best with this 48 Pound stud!!! My scales were acting funny being a 50 pound scale but after several readings between 46 and Error I split the difference and called him 48 Pounds. I caught a 54 Pound Flathead in 2011 from this pier and hundreds of pounds of 20s and 30s and all were....
Went out with a good friend and Fly fishing guide Justin Anderson of Fontana Guide service and learned to Euro-Nymph, and was catching fish literally within minutes after not having casted a fly in 8-10 years - 2 men - 20+ fish in a couple of hours - great time on the river
Got the chance to take a little break from chasing gobblers and do a little fishing on Lake James. I've not been having great luck this turkey season so it was nice to have a good evening catching fish. We caught about 20 crappie and I caught a pretty nice bass. The crappie have been biting pretty good at night, but most are small. It was nice to spend some time on the water doing what I love.
Had the opportunity to crappie fish Lake James with a good fishing buddy,and of course I jumped at the chance since I've been wanting to go for a while. We caught 40 crappie. We could have probably caught a lot more but the minnows ran out. I kept enough of the larger ones for supper and we released the rest. It was a great night fishing. I can't wait to do it again soon.
