LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 2.5 FEET, STAINED & MID 70’S
This Lake Allatoona bass fishing report is from Matt Driver, www.proanglerradio.com 404 456 6094
Bass fishing is good and on the upswing with cooler weather and rain. The crank bait bite is getting better. The Spro Little John and Fat John are producing. The creeks are getting better and the main lake is not as fired up as it was. Target blow down and secondary points and look for shad and find the bass. The jig bite has been holding strong for the past 2 weeks. The Kacys Kustom bold gill and the K2 Dock Monkey jigs in green pumpkin are hot right now. Fishing will only get better between now and November.
Lines side fishing is fair to good. The fish are starting to move up on the flats and points. Our better bite has been north of Clear Creek all the way up to the delta. The recent rains and dropping water temperatures has gotten the bigger hybrids and stripers eating again. Live bait is working best, with our best luck coming on big thread fin shad fished on down lines off of any main lake point, humps or flats. After 9 am switch over to the umbrella rigs. This is the time of year that you need to be universal and not one dimensional on techniques. Any of these method's can work from live bait, down lines, free lines, top water, spooning and trolling will all catch you fish on any given day.
