Lake Sinclair Fishing Report April 2015

GON Staff | March 25, 2015

Sinclair: Level: 1 foot below low. Temp: 59-63 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Excellent. Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Good baits are 1/4-oz. chartreuse spinnerbaits and 1/4-oz. Rat-L-Traps. Work seawalls and rocky banks. There are some bass spawning now, and they can be caught on Texas-rigged junebug lizards and Senkos. Later in the month, look for the shad spawn to begin and work the seawalls and rip-rap with Pop-Rs, Chug Bugs, Sammys or flukes.”

Allan Brown reports, “Crappie fishing is on. The spawn is in full swing. Trolling jigs in shallow-water flats has been producing good numbers of slabs. Shooting docks will pay off as fish move up to spawn, too. Look for docks with some type of brush or cover close by. Also, attach a small float about a foot above a 1/32-oz. jig. Cast near the bank, and let the float settle. Then pop the rod tip. This noise will attract fish, and they will hit the jig. Watch your cork for the smallest movement to indicate a bite. Black/blue/black or solid black works great for this.”
