Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – January 2010

GON Staff | January 4, 2010

Sinclair: Level: 0.7 feet above full pool. Temp: 51-53 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Fair to tough, said Aaron Batson. He reports, “We have been catching good numbers on 1/4-oz. Net Boy Baits ScrewBall jigheads with junebug or redbug Zoom Finesse worms in 12 to 14 feet of water. Concentrate on any brushpiles you can find. The bites are coming by shaking the worm in the cover. Dipping the worm in clear JJ’s Magic garlic scent will help increase the number of bites, also. Bigger bites are coming on slow-rolled Ol Nelle 1/2-oz. spinnerbaits with one big, gold Colorado blade. Roll this bait through the same brushpiles where you fished the jig-head worm. Also try a 3/4-oz. Rat-L-Trap in the center of pockets. Yo-yo the bait through any shad you can find. Big fish can be caught under the schools. Productive areas have been from the railroad bridge to Twin Bridges in Little River and also inside Crooked Creek.”

Good. Allan Brown reports, “The lake is muddy to stained in most places. Crappie have been good in Beaverdam Creek around the hot-water discharge. Rooty Creek and Nancy Branch have also been good. Trolling jigs in 12 to 15 feet of water has worked well. The best colors are red/black/yellow and pink/white/pink. Both 1/16 and 1/32-oz. jigs work great.”
