Lake Sinclair Fishing Report April 2011

GON Staff | March 30, 2011

Sinclair: Level: Full pool. Temp: Mid 60s. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Good. Fish will be in postspawn patterns. Begin to look for them to move back toward deeper patterns just after leaving bedding areas. A light Carolina-rigged lizard in 4 to 8 feet of water will catch them well. Deeper crankbaits like a 300 Bandit would also be a good search bait to locate schools of fish. There will be a topwater bite late on most afternoons. Spooks and Sammys will draw a big bite in the right areas.”

Good, according to Allan Brown. “The crappie spawn is in full swing, and fish can be caught in shallow water in all major creeks by trolling small jigs. Fish are also being caught shooting docks,” Allan said. “Look for flats in the backs of creeks and coves in 5 to 6 feet of water, and troll 1/48- or 1/32-oz. jigs in blue, black and green. Also, any rocky bank can produce by throwing a cork and jig up next to the bank and popping it back to attract fish.”
