Shellcracker time is here!!

Reports are coming in at both Whippoorwill and Ingrams marinas of shellcrackers bedding around the Iron Curtain and Rocky Comfort Creek area.

Scott Haire and family fished Rocky Comfort Creek this past weekend and, along with several other folks from Georgia, took limits using black wigglers and big reds. Oliver Hale and I also had a very productive afternoon along with a couple from Blakely, Ga.

Bluegill bream and river bream are beginning to turn it on and with the full moon this Saturday. Both bream and shellcracker should really be active.

If you like to catch pan fish, now is the time to come on down.

Catfishing remains strong with reports of good numbers being taken using both worms and prepared bait.

What a year for bass! In talking with several bass anglers, all agreed that this spring has been as productive as any they can recall. The 18-inch slot limit has really produced some lunker bass. Crappie fishing also remains strong with slabs being taken in 7 to 10 feet of water.

Charles Pitts from Crochan, Ga. took 25 nice crappie per day this past week trolling a jig in Hammock Creek in 7 to 10 feet of water.

The lake condition is getting better every day and the weather is ideal for a day on Lake Talquin.

If you have a report for me, call me at 850-508-4308. I would love to hear from you. Until next week, tight lines and good fishing.
