LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 16.1 FEET, STAINED & LOW 50’S
This Lake Allatoona bass fishing guides report is from Matt Driver, www.proanglerradio.com
Bass fishing is fair. In the morning there is a good crank bait bite that can last throughout the day. Cast a Bandit 200 or 300 in Copper Craw or a Natural colored Shad Rap to main lake points. After you finish fishing the crank bait, back off of the points and make long casts with a Paca Bug Jig or Bass Patrol jig in root beer green or browns. Both of these jigs are football style jigs. Fish the bait very slowly and watch your line for any slight movement. The bites can be very subtle. Fishing the steep rock banks right now is a good way to catch fish. Use a Shaky Head in 3/16 ounce sine and add a 6” Robo Worm in SXE Shad which is working. There are still reports of a good drop shot bite. Fish the mouths of the creeks with a Skinny Bear Shad or any Shad style bait. Use your Lowrance sonar to help locate bait fish. When you find the bait, drop the worm and shake it to produce a bite. Using a heavier than normal weight works well because the bait is moving fairly quickly. Use a ½ ounce round bullet weight brand drop shot weight.
