Good Friday was a great day for fishing and loading up your boat with catch, and many folks took advantage of it. The warming weather and a full moon, what more do you need to have happen before you get out on the water with your fishing pole. Isn’t it customary to eat fish on Good Friday?
Brandon, Jeff and Alex went fishing and it was Alex’s first time
“I would like to thank Brandon and Alex today, I had a blast with these guys,” laughed Jeff Albright of Crappieman Guide Fishing. This wasn’t a guided fishing trip but just some friends having fun fishing. “Today was the first time Alex ever fished and he caught the first fish. We ended up boating 31 fish, a nice bucket of crappie, and they took home 21. They ended up following me home and I cleaned the fish for them.”
“Brandon caught a nice striper, I’d say around eight pounds, lots of fun, on a nine-pound crappie rod using four-pound test. All fish were caught on sliders. The water was stained a little so the darker jigs worked pretty good for us.”
“When we first got there the water was 47 degrees, we did find 54 degrees and caught some nice crappie. When we left the water was getting to 53-55 degrees where it needs to be. Be careful on the north end there are lots of logs floating.”
Nice catch. A great day of fishing Lake Allatoona, and fish fries to come.
