Bass fishing is good. The mayflies are back on Lake Sinclair this week! We had another big mayfly hatch this week which is turning on the shallow bite again. This is the largest hatch of the year thus far covering both the Little River and the Oconee River arms. Shallow grass beds, overhanging tree limbs, and dock walkways adjacent to the river channel should be your primary targets. Top water baits will produce both early and late each day and can continue throughout the day in overcast conditions. A Spro Bronzeye Popping Frog in the Leopard color will produce many bites around the grass beds and around overhangs. A Bass Hound prop bait in a bream color will also produce in these same areas. A Spro Fat John square bill crank bait will also produce in these same locations early and late when the fish are feeding. The best way to fish this crank bait is to parallel the sea walls or fish it through any shallow wood cover you can find. When the mayflies are present the bass will be positioned right at the base of the sea wall. Fishing the crank bait as close as you can to the sea wall will result in more bites. During the day, fish a Buckeye Mop Jig in a brown or green pumpkin color around dock walkways, sea walls, and around any wood cover that has some shade. This is a great way to catch a big fish. The deep bite is still decent lake wide. Deep diving crank baits, Carolina rigs, and drop shot rigs will all produce on the offshore structure near the river channel. Concentrate your efforts in 18 to 25 feet of water when targeting these deep fish. As always, the deep bite is best when Georgia Power is moving water.
