LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.4 FEET, LAKE SINCLAIR IS FULL, 75 DEGREES, LIGHT STAIN UP RIVER, MAIN LAKE CLEAR, BY MATT HENRY, CALL 478 451 0167 ext 1215 (SINCLAIR MARINA)

Bass fishing is fair to good. Some areas of the lake seem to be turning over right now which makes the bite extremely tough in that area. The areas that are turning over have a really dark tannic colored water that is deceivingly clearer than it appears. Purple colored algae blooms are also present in these same areas. If you see this colored water, you are better off relocating to the greenish colored clear water on the lower end of the lake or in the creeks. The back halves of the major creeks have been most consistent for catching numbers of fish. The shad are migrating towards the back flats of these creeks and the bass are following. Use your Lowrance electronics to find what areas of the creek have the most bait and fish everything that looks good in the area. Fishing fast and covering water with your trolling motor tends to help you put more fish in the boat this time of the year as the fish get scattered. Shad imitating baits such as Buckeye Lures spinner baits, Spro Aruku Shad lipless crank baits, walking top water baits like a Zara Spook Jr. and Zoom Super Flukes will work best. White or flashy silver colored baits will get the most bites. Many areas of the lake have super clear water right now so long casts are extremely important. On tougher post front blue bird days, a Buckeye Lures shaky head with a green pumpkin Zoom Trick Worm will be your best friend for getting fish in the boat. Skip this shaky head under docks and toss it out in 6 8ft deep brush piles.
