Lake Sinclair Fishing Report December 2012

GON Staff | November 28, 2012

Sinclair: Level: 1.9 feet below full pool. Temp: Upper 50s. Clarity: Light stain.

Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports that the baitfish have really moved offshore as of late. For numbers, fish down near the dam on main-lake points with a drop shot rigged with a Wackem Crazy Baits Little Sissy. He caught 20 keepers doing this the other day. Also, he’ll fish a 1/2-oz. Hopkins silver spoon and pick up a few linesides and crappie. Aaron doesn’t think colors matter too much on these fish, but blue ice and cotton candy have been working. For a bigger bite, he’ll flip docks in 6 feet of water or less with a 1/2-oz. jig and a Wackem Tater Bug. This bite can really get good if we have a few warm, sunny days.

Crappie: Allan Brown reports, “Crappie fishing is good as the water starts to cool off. The lake is clear in most areas, and trolling will only get better as we head into December. Look for crappie in all major creeks, and you can catch them trolling jigs, Triple Ripples, etc. will work. Toward the end of the month as the water gets colder, Beaverdam Creek with the warm-water discharge will produce also.”
