Lake Sinclair Fishing Report December 2011
Sinclair: Level: 1.6 feet below full pool. Temp: Low 60s. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Eric Perkins said, “I like a wide variety of brightly colored shallow-diving crankbaits for fishing Sinclair in December — Shad Raps, Gulps, chrome/blue Rat-L-Traps and Deep Wee-Rs. Fish can be caught shallow all month long. I like the Little River arm, and I stay fairly close to Little River Marina. The rip-rap at both sides of 441 is hard to beat this time of year. I also like to crank the docks, and I’m fishing shallow docks and looking for the ones with brush out front or under them to be the best. A Net Boy Baits Flipp’N Jig in black/blue with a black/blue chunk is also hard to beat. I’m skipping it more than flipping, but if the sun isn’t out, they might be anywhere rather than under the docks. You just have to have confidence that those fish won’t all be out deep. There will always be plenty of release fish around Little River Marina, so that’s a hard area to beat.”
Crappie: Allan Brown reports, “The water is really cooling off, and fishing will only get better. Trolling in all major creeks and secondary coves is producing now. Fish will move up shallow when warm days raise the water temp a few degrees. Acid rain and bubble gum are two excellent colors to try.”
