LAKE ALLATOONA IS FULL, STAINED & LOW 80’S
This Lake Allatoona bass fishing report is from Mat Driver, www.proanglerradio.com 404 456 6094
Bass fishing is fair. There are still tons of tiny bait around and tons of tiny bass feeding on them. Lots of 9 to 13 inch fish. If you’re just going to fun fish thing aren't all that bad. But if you are your looking for big tournament winning stringers, you will have your work cut out for you. Small bait is the key to getting bit right now. Tiny flukes and the new 3 1/2 jointed Big Bite jerk minnow are good choices fished on the drop shot. Whether fish vertically on sonar or thrown at schoolers this is my number 1 choice for bites right now. The top water bite is decent at day break and sundown. Small walking style bait and poppers are the best choice. The crank bait bite is very slow. At night the jig head tipped with a trick stick in green pumpkin and a jig are the best option around boat docks and lit areas.
Line side fishing is good. Fishing has slowed down some compared to the last few weeks, but we where expecting it with the super moon we had on Sunday. That is behind us now and fishing should return to normal. Most of the fish we are catching right now are close to the dam and out over open water. The live bait bite is still our strongest bite. Thread fin, small gizzard shad and shiners fish on down lines any where from 18 to 30 feet deep has been our best bite. There is also a bite going on mid lake in the afternoon from Galt's ferry to the S Turns. That bite has been hit or miss, but worth looking into if you launch on that end of the lake. The white bass are coming up all over the lake right now both at sun up and again at sun down. These little fish can be fun to catch on light spinning gear.
