LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, CLEAR, 80'S
Bass fishing is fair. At day break, try a black Zoom Trick Worm around any grass or wood cover in the clearer water down lake. Use a 2/0 Gamakatsu wide gap hook on a one foot leader with a swivel and no weight. Line size should be from 10 to 14 pound test. Cast into the cover and make a couple fast but short jerks and then let the bait settle for a few seconds. Repeat until the bait has cleared the cover. Retrieve and cast again. Some fish are still hitting 1/4 or 3/8 ounce buzz baits and Pop R’s in the central and upper lake. Try rip rap, grass, blow downs and rocky points. After the early bite ends, fish the boat docks or points, humps, flats and creek bends. On the docks, try a 6 inch Zoom Dead Ringer with a 3/16 ounce weight and twitch it near the posts. June bug has been a good color. For structure fishing in open water, look for a rough bottom with wood or rock. During power generation and the first few hours each morning, most fish will be 6 to 10 feet deep. Try a #6 Fat Free Shad, Poe’s 300 or Deep Little N. Chartreuse and shad patterns are both working. With no water movement, most fish will be 8 to 15 feet deep. Use the next larger sizes of the same crank baits or throw Carolina rigged worms. Try a June bug colored Zoom Trick worm on a 3 foot leader and 3/4 ounce weight.
