  • Lake Sinclair Fishing Report - GA


    Bass are slow to fair in shallow and deep water. Some anglers are still catching fish from shallow water using mainly crank baits and jigs. Most are coming from main river banks that drop quickly into deep water. Some crank baits producing recent success are Rapala DT10, Shad Rap RS #5, Thunder Shad, and Deep Little N. For the jig, try a Stanley 5/16 ounce in black blue with a Zoom Chunk in black blue or green pumpkin. The warm water discharge in Beaver Dam Creek has been producing a few fish during power generation using crank baits. Baits can be cast directly into the current from along side the buoyed cable. Riprap along the roads in Little River is still producing bass using crank baits and jigs. There are now quite a number of main river points and flats that are holding deeper fish. The area from Nancy Branch to Sandy Run Creek on the Oconee River has been best lately. Most fish are holding on the sides of these structures at 15 to 25 feet deep. The best baits are varying daily or even hourly. On some days, an angler may catch only one or two fish per bait. But a good catch is still possible by catching one or more fish on three or four baits. Spoons have probably been the best overall. Some good spoons are a Flex it .6, Bomber Slab spoon, and Hopkins Shorty 45. Chrome, white, and chartreuse have all produced. With the colder water, a short hop of 12 to 18 inches off bottom has been better than a higher jigged spoon. Carolina rigs are working well at times using a very slow retrieve. Little Georgeís and Rocket Shadís can also be good at times. Use a very slow retrieve trying to make the bait slowly slide along bottom or just a few inches off bottom. A drop shot rig should also be tried. Another good bait that is not very popular is a jig head and worm. Use a 1/8 to ľ ounce darter head with a Zoom Finesse worm. Like the drop shot rig, the jig head and worm is more easily fished using spinning tackle with 8 or 10 pound line. This rig should also be slowly slid across the bottom without trying to impart any action on the bait.

    We have another very cold weather front this week. Air temperatures are very cold and the fish will react to the weather by not feeding and relating the heavy structure with the very cold temperatures and high pressure. Any warm water you can find can have active bass. They still have to eat.
