Lake Oconee Fishing Report January 2011

GON Staff | January 3, 2011

Oconee: Level: Full pool. Temp: 52 to 54 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Aaron Batson reports, “The best bite has been on deeper fish. Look for schools of fish on the graph, and drop a 3/4-oz. War Eagle jigging spoon or a drop-shot Zoom Meathead worm. Look for these fish in clearer water down near the dam. The best depths have been in the 18- to 28-foot range. The key is finding bait on or very near the bottom. Expect a mixed bag of fish in these areas. Up the lake in stained water, a slow rolled 1/2-oz. chartreuse single Colorado blade Ol Nelle spinnerbait has been working in 4 to 6 feet of water for largemouths. The key is to stay slow with the spinnerbait; barely keep it moving. Also, some dock fish are being caught on 1/4-oz. Net Boy Baits Flipp’N Jigs. All black has been a great color with a full size Zoom Chunk. Dipping the jig in clear J.J.’s Magic will help a great deal with increased bites.”
