Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – December 2009
Sinclair: Level: 0.2 feet below full. Temp: 59 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Fishing is fair, according to Eric Perkins. “Look for the crankbait bite to continue on in December,” said Eric. “Small crankbaits like a No. 5 and a No. 7 firetiger Shad Rap are hard to beat. Also the the Rat-L-Trap bite and the Aruku Shad will hold up. I usually keep both a chrome/blue and a chartreuse/black Trap rigged up. I like to go to the lake with a wide variety of small crankbaits mostly in firetiger or gable green or in some hot, bright color and try to cover as much water as possible. I usually never fish much deeper than 8 or 9 feet deep and usually concentrate on 3 to 6 feet of water. However, it will depend on how much cold weather we have. You’ll also need to adjust your retrieve and your depth as it gets colder. The flipping bite has been a little off, but always keep a black/blue Net Boy Baits Flip ’N Jig rigged up, and pitch it to the seawalls and under any docks and walkways. Most of the fish are halfway in and to the backs of the creeks and pockets. I like to concentrate on the Little River arm and anywhere around 441. The rip-rap is always good for a few good fish. Also, fish either on the hot-water side or on the marina side. Any pockets from a mile below Little River Park to a mile or so up are always going to be good because of the released fish. Also, on warmer days, don’t forget the spinnerbait bite slow rolled in the grassbeds. This can be an awesome big-fish tactic.”
