Default Allatoona Bank Fishing

I moved to Canton his spring and donít own a boat. Iíve fished Fieldís Landing, Cooperís Branch, Red Top, and several other places on the Allatoona Bank Fishing Map with limited success...a few spots and 1-2 pound largemouths using a variety of plastics, top water, and spinnerbaits... in early summer I used minnows for crappie a few times at Fieldís but had no luck (of course an elderly man hauled them in while I was there). Iím not an inexperienced fisherman, but this is a whole new challenge. From what Iíve read stripers move into shallow water as the weather cools but I havenít had any luck with Spook type lures.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Iíd love to take my grandsons out, too, but I donít want them to lose interest if they get skunked.

Thanks in advance!

I like Stamp Creek where the creek meets the lake. Park on Hwy 20 and walk back down the old dirt road. It's pretty grown up back there now but may be ok in the Winter. It's a nice quiet spot and I always catch a few fish.

Not as much. There is water and there are fish. I've fished it in the winter.

I use to put attractors at Fields Landing, but I stopped. They wouldn't let me use my ATV to haul the trees down there. All the trees have rotted away and the fish haven't held as good in the past. If I could get the permit like in the past I would start back up putting the trees in. Spring is good for crappie on Fields Landing bank and under Good Luck

most of the crappie have moved deep. They are in 15 to 25 feet deep on structure.

I fish WP a lot from the bank with my Granddaughter, she gets bored in the boat.
I fish only in the spots that are close to the river channel and I use live bait exclusively. I also have equipment capable of making long cast. We catch lots of catfish, hybrids, bass and stripes, occasionally adding nice sized shell crackers.
If I were to fish Alatoona, I'd do the same thing.
