Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report – January 2007

GON Staff | January 2, 2007

Bartletts Ferry: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 60 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Fair. Chris Brackett at West Georgia Sportsman in LaGrange said he has heard of two productive patterns lately, and both of them are fairly shallow. First, hit concrete boat ramps with shallow-running crankbaits, like a Shad Rap. Second, work a jig ’n pig around the boat docks and blowdowns. The shallow bite only lasts until about 9:30 in the morning, and then you need to move to a deeper pattern, like jigging spoons.

Hybrids/Stripers: Chris said a jigging spoon is definitely the best bet on Bartletts Ferry right now for linesides — and a wide variety of other fish. Main-lake points and humps with brush or a fast break will all hold fish. He said the island near the dam is a good spot to try. “And up in Halawakee Creek under the powerline are two humps that are good jigging-spoon holes,” he said. “With the winter drawdown, the humps are in about 16 to 25 feet of water.” Chris said that a Flex-it is the most popular spoon on Bartletts. Color isn’t important to the fish, he said, but the most popular color sold in the store is probably white with silver reflective tape or white with chartreuse reflective tape.
