BASS : Good ------Expect the largemouth bite to continue to improve dramatically around rip rap rocks, shallow wood or brush cover or around baitfish schools in the shallows. As the water warms,shallow-water baits such as Jerk Baits ,Chatterbaits, Rat'l traps  and crawfish Shad Raps will work even better.Some big  prespawn females are being caught ,so it is a good time for a trophy. One of the main keys to this type of fishing is to look for the stained water that is just a few degrees warmer. Most creeks seem to be producing....
  --The spotted bass are also starting to turn on as well.
Carolina rigged Finesse worms  or a Tommy Head rigged with a Zoom  Shakey  Head worm are good choices for these somewhat deeper mixed fish. ----Another option this time of year for spot is simply running banks or shoal markers with a small Bandit crankbait. Usually when you catch one ,there are others in the same area.

---The river run nomally cranks up full bore  in late March and into early April.It is usually pretty easy fishing.Anchor out and fish live or cut shad with garlic spray ( or in a pinch chicken livers sometimes work) on bottom.Sections of the Chattahoochee River north of Ringer access around Grayson's Landing are usually a good starting place.Expect a mix of whites,hybrids & stripers(and the occasional surprise big Flathead catfish).As the month goes along you can somewhat  follow the fish on up to Franklin.----Use caution when running the river as the water is still down a good bit.

----Fair numbers of fish are still down on the main lake.
Downlining with shad or bass shiners is  still fairly effective right now.Free lining a live bait will also work at times. The mouths of Yellow Jacket, Wilson & White Water creeks should continue producing some fish.-- Expect the topwater fishing to be best very early and very late or on overcast days.--Gulls & loons help pinpoint their locations,so keep your eyes and ears open. Trolling with mid depth crankbaits and Alabama Rigs has also been producing in these same areas .-


CRAPPIE: EXCELLENT   --The bite really picked up this week.It's time to start filling those freezers with crappie. Wehadkee,Veasey &Yellow Jacket creeks are already producing good fish. Troll early morning near the channels in 10- 15 ft. of water.The fish will move shallower in the afternoons. The float and fly technique really works well to find and catch a limit during this prespawn & spawning time frame-- Try fishing the smallest  minnows you can find or 1/16 oz.  jig under a weighted float around brush piles  or gravel banks in shallow (2-3 ft.) of water. Casting with small Jiffy Jigs (Black /Chartreuse & Blue/White curly or feather tails)is a favorite this time of year. ---Blowdown trees in 10-15 ft of water are also holding some fish. Concentrate on trees that are close to the old creek channels. Lots of nice crappie are already being caught by bank fishermen as well - right now!!!.






      KEITH HUDSON'S Guide Service -- West Point Lake's level is still down about five feet or so. Expect the water level to continue to stay steady unless we have some more big rains. The water conditions are fairly clear over nearly the entire lake. Water temperatures are basically ranging around 55- 65 degrees-------. 
----You can call 706 645 -2929 for the daily lake level and generation schedule.
