Today was the last tournament of the year for ABA Division 125 Tour out lake Allatoona's Gatewood ramp. I spent the previous two days fishing different areas of the lake to locate active fish without much success. I set out fishing around the damn area boating several short fish on shakeyheads and trick worms. I moved up into the Allatoona pass area boating several more short fish on the shakeyhead setup. I decided to up size my baits and change presentation as the wind had picked up putting a heavy chop on the water. After moving back to the Gatewood area I concentrated on wind blown banks with chunk rock. I cast on the break line of mudd and clear water. On the third cast I was rewarded with a keeper fish weighing about 2lbs. I finished the last hour of the tournament working this area as I could see shad moving against the bank. I alternated between the larger fish head spin with swim bait trailer to a Gann's 3/4 oz. spinner bait. Although I did not boat any more keepers I felt I was in the right area doing the thing.
