Lake Sinclair Fishing Report August 2014

GON Staff | July 31, 2014

Sinclair: Level: 1 foot below full. Temp: 83-87 degrees. Clarity: Lightly stained up on the north end; clear around the dam.

Bass: Slow. Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Start out with white or black Ol’ Nelle buzzbaits or Pop-Rs in blue-chrome. Go up Little River, and throw to deeper banks with undercuts that provide shade until around 10 or 11 a.m. Then move to deep points, and throw big crankbaits like a DD22 and 6XD in blue/chartreuse and shad colors. Also try a Carolina-rigged green-pumpkin Wackem Crazy Big Sissy or Goliath worm. When it gets near evening, go back to the same lures that produced at dawn.”

Catfish: Good. Guide Chad Smith reports, “The best baits have been cut and live bream and cut and live gizzard shad. Drifting and anchoring have both been good techniques to put fish in the boat. Anchoring in deep holes around the channel has been very productive for big fish lately. This bite should stay good the rest of the summer.”
