    LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.36 FEET, STAINED, 80’S


    Bass fishing is fair. A few fish continue to hit top water baits at first light on some mornings. Try baits like a Pop R, Chug Bug, and Tiny Torpedo along Main River and creek banks that drop quickly into deep water. A few more fish are beginning to feed around docks and boat houses, especially those with good depth and brush present. Soft plastics continue to be the best chance for success along with an occasional bite using small to medium crank baits and jigs. Carolina rigs and crank baits are proven choices, but lightweight Texas rigs and jig head and worm rigs are better on some days. A Zoom U Tale worm works great rigged Texas style with a 1/8 to ¼ ounce weight. Also try a finesse worm rigged on a 1/16 to 3/16 ounce jig head like a Spotsticker. For either of these worm rigs, use the lightest weight possible, with wind or current dictating the size. These same rigs are also producing a few fish along rip rap and bridge supports. When fishing rip rap, retrieve either bait slowly along bottom all the way out to where the rip rap ends at 15 or 20 feet deep. For the bridge supports, try 2 different methods with the same rigs. First, cast right beside each support and allow the bait to fall vertically on a slack line to 20 feet deep or more. If the bait suddenly quits falling, set the hook. Also, try slowly swimming the bait horizontally beside each support after first counting it down on each cast.
