LAKE ALLATOONA IS DOWN 4.2 FEET, STAINED & LOW 70’S
This Lake Allatoona bass fishing report is from Matt Driver, www.proanglerradio.com 404 456 6094
Bass fishing is good. We're still covering water with square bill cranks like the cell mate Spro fat john. The spinnerbait and Chatter bait are good as well. It's a safe bet when the square bill is working so is the Chatter bait. Fish are roaming now and not really holding to any one piece of cover. The shaky head bite is a good plan for numbers as well. We are mixing up between the 3.5 Big Bite fighting frog and a bite 6 inch finesse worm on a 3/16 jig head.
Lines side fishing is fair. The fishing has slowed down a little this week, but should rebound quickly as soon as our over night temperatures stabilizes. 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 temps has gotten the bigger hybrids and stripers eating again. Live bait is working best, with our best luck coming on big Thread fins 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 methods from live bait, to down lines and free lines as well as top water, spooning and trolling will all catch you fish on any given day.
