Date Fished: 4/14/2012
Water Temperature: 68
Water Clarity: 0

We are at 5.1 feet below full now and holding. Water temps have rebounded from last weeks cold blast and are in the upper 60's on the lower end. It dropped a few degrees last week but rebounded nicely.

It was a strange week last week for the most part. Fishing was decent overall. A good many of the females spawned late last week with the full moon and then moved out deep and suspended. There are a few holing shallow around the banks/docks/points and a few out deep on the summer brush. A good many of the big fish are suspended out deep just recovering and should move back up in the next week or so.

We had some nice fish schooling in the mid lake area early in the mornings last week. There has been a little herring spawn going on but it has not been in full swing. I know there has been a pretty good shad spawn up north this week. Look for that to continue this week. I saw some thread spawning up in the Chestatee early last week but was not up there later in the week so I can't say if its still going on.

For the most part, I fished wake baits and Sammy's early in the days and then working swim baits/fishheads during the big part of the day. We also are still taking it easy at times, working a finesse worm rigged on a SpotSticker around rock from 5-20 feet of water at any part of the day.

There has been a big resurgence of small fish move up over the past few weeks. They are everywhere and you will catch them on everything. I have caught small fish on topwater, jigs, worms, crank baits and dropshots over the past week just about everywhere and at every depth. The drop shot bite has really picked up and we have been doing very well on that for numbers of 1-2 pound fish out on the summer brush. A little early for them to be out there but I have a feeling this entire spring/summer transition is about to happen.. Its great to see all the small fish even though they are in the way at times.

I look for the topwater bite to really pick up this week as will the swimbait bite for the bigger fish. We usually get a good swimbait bite going over the points and humps this time of year and from what we are seeing right now, that should get going this week full swing..

Lots of decent pictures from last week, i will get them up on my report this week. Thanks to all the guys who have been ordering from SpotSticker both in the stores and on my website. I certainly appreciate the orders. I have a full line of the drop shot worms right now as I do jigheads and weights... Thanks again

Good luck out there and drop me a line if you want to get out in May. I still have some days open.
