LAKE SINCLAIR IS FULL, 69 73 DEGREES, RIVERS AND CREEKS ARE STAINED, LOWER LAKE IS CLEAR, BY MATT HENRY, CALL 478 451 0167 ext 1215 (SINCLAIR MARINA)
Bass fishing is great. The majority of the bass seem to be spawning but some pre spawn and post spawn fish can be found. Soft plastic baits fished slowly in the spawning pockets have been most consistent. We have been catching a lot of good fish off of stumps, grass, and dock walkways in 3 to 5 feet in the back half of the spawning pockets. Texas rigged Zoom lizards and weightless Zoom trick worms have been best when targeting spawning fish around the stumps. Dark colors will work best as the water is still really stained in most areas of the lake. Pre-spawn and post-spawn fish can still be caught in these same spawning pockets by covering a lot of water with a chartreuse Buckeye Lures spinnerbait with Colorado blades or by flipping a Buckeye Lures mop jig around the dock posts on the sides of the pockets. A black buzz bait or Zoom horny toad will fool a few big ones early and late targeting wood or grass in the pockets.
April is one of the best months to catch a fish of a lifetime! Give us a call to book your guide trip today so you don’t miss out on the fun. Make sure to stop by our new boat showroom and see our 2014 and 2015 inventory of new Tracker, Sun Tracker, Nitro, Tahoe, Regency and Mako boats. For more information, swing by the marina.
