Tennessee and North Carolina Fishing Charters to Fontana Lake

May 5th / water temp 63 rising to 67 / air temp 35 rising to 66 / no wind / sunny / day after biggest cold front of the season

Fished with Bryce, Dan, and Mark from Atlanta today. Started by railroad near Almond boat ramp with no bites. Had one walleye bite on train bridge in about 30 foot on Rapalla swim jig. With severe cold front that moved through figured the bass were going to be a bit finicky today. Found fish positioned on major secondary points near spawning areas. Started catching a few fish on drop-shot, Strike King series 3 crank baits, and zoom bush hogs. Several nice smallmouth mixed in. Started to narrow down that transitions with large flat rocks and pea gravel were holding bass with the combination of the two producing great. Managed a dozen or so. Fish seemed to be focusing on craw patters well today and managed the biggest fish on a jig.
