Lake Sinclair Fishing Report February 2014

GON Staff | January 30, 2014

Sinclair: Level: 1.7 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 40s. Clarity: Stained.

Aaron Batson reports, “The month of February is a month to fish slow with the jig—really soaking the bait around cover for long periods of time. Dipping a Wackem Crazy Bait Tater Bug trailer in JJ’s Magic will help increase bites a ton. On the jerkbait bite, increase the length of the pause between jerks on extremely cold days, and then speed up on warm, sunny days. Also, begin to slow-roll a 1/2-oz. Ol’ Nelle Colorado-blade spinnerbait in 8 to 10 feet of water on rock and red-clay banks. This technique will get hot as the big females begin to move shallower.”

Allen Brown reports, “Crappie fishing is good around the warm-water discharge of Beaverdam Creek. Trolling is the preferred method using 1/32- to 1/16-oz. jigs. Later in the month, fish will move toward creek mouths and coves in deep water. After a few warm days, fish will start to move to shallow spawning flats near deep water. These fish can be caught trolling small jigs, grubs, Triple Ripples, etc. Shooting docks will start up too as the water starts warming up.”
