Shane Watson Guide Service Report for Tuesday 5-27-08. The downline striper bite has been very good the last week both south and up north. Our boats have been out everyday and downline bluebacks fished 20 feet deep over a 25-35 feet slick bottom has produced best. Expect a wide range of sizes from 5-20 pounds being most common. We have also caught and released many very big spotted bass that have been mixed in with the schools of stripers. I have seen a good many busting stripers and spots the past few days, but we were getting great action on the downline so we stayed with it. Memorial weekend was very good inspite of the boat traffic. We ran trips from 6:30 till 10:30 and got off the lake before things got crazy. Overall, the downline bite is very good, but you can still catch a few on a freeline early most days and when its cloudy. The numbers of fish have been very good, please remember that catch and release does work. If you do keep fish, please observe GA. DNR creel limits. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service and Hammond’s Fishing Center. Good Fishing.
