LAKE SINCLAIR IS FULL, 86 DEGREES, STAINED UP RIVER, MAIN LAKE CLEAR, BY MATT HENRY, CALL 478 451 0167 ext 1215 (SINCLAIR MARINA)
Bass fishing is great. The recent heavy rains and cool nights have cooled the water temperature down making for a great shallow water bite all day long. Along with cooler water temps, we also have had some good mayfly hatches this week that have helped the shallow bite as well. Top water, square bill crank baits and jigs will be the most productive baits for these shallow fish. A popping style bait or a prop bait will be best when looking for a top water bite. A Spro popping frog and a Bass Hound prop bait in bream imitating colors will get the job done when fishing around the mayflies. When the top water bite slows, parallel the sea walls with chartreuse Spro Fat John square bill crank bait. Make sure to fish the crank bait as close to the sea walls as possible. During the middle of the day, flip a brown Buckeye Mop Jig paired with a Zoom Super Chunk trailer around dock walkways and under overhanging trees that have mayflies nearby. Early last week before the water temps cooled, there was a really strong deep bite. A Buckeye football jig and a Carolina rigged Zoom Ol’ Monster fished on humps and points in 17 to 22 feet of water were very productive. There has also been a good drop shot bite in 24 to feet of water around the creek and river channels. These schools have been easy to find on the Lowrance HDS 12 graph by using the structure scan feature. When you find a school, you can catch a lot of fish in a hurry.
I have some guide trips available next week. Give me a call to reserve your trip today.
