Fontana lake fishing is really starting to heat up. Smallmouth, walleye and white bass are being caught in good numbers on just about all our fishing charters.

4-9-15 Had a really good fishing trip yesterday with James and Mike, started out a little slow but wasn’t surprised with the bright moon we had. Fished up the Tuckasegee river near Bryson City and just picked up a fish here and there, some small spots and a couple of whites all the way into the running water. Finally headed downlake to point 5 just to see if the smallies were on yet. We caught a few nice fish with spots and smallies coming on the jigs. Wind picked up considerably so headed towards point 9 and found a ton of nice fish on the bluffs in the area. Capt. Frank Askew had told me that was one of his go-to places but I have hardly ever fished them. They are either there or not and they were Thursday. We had a really good last hour with nice smallies and spots catching our best fish of the day and losing several really good ones. If the wind is howling that is going to be one of my new go-to place from now on. Water finally into the 60’s in places so should start to be real good from here on out.
Later, Capt. James
