Lake Sinclair Fishing Report January 2015

GON Staff | December 23, 2014

Sinclair: Level: 1.8 feet low. Temp: 50-54 degrees. Clarity: Light stained.

Bass: Good. Tournament fisherman Aaron Batson reports, “Look for a bite on deep seawalls with 1/2-oz. ChatterBaits and spinnerbaits. Slow-roll these baits in 4 to 8 feet of water. The key is very slow. Sometimes a yo-yo presentation is best. They can also be caught down near the dam in clearer water on drop-shot worms, like a Wackem Crazy Baits Big Sissy worm or a Trixster Baits Money Maker worm in watermelon or redbug. Numbers can be very good on the drop shot.”

Allan Brown reports, “Crappie fishing has picked up since the water has finally turned over and cooled off. Look for fish schools in all major creeks and coves using your electronics to locate them. The steam plant cove has been producing during times of generating power. Trolling jigs in shallow-water flats here pays off once you locate them. Tightlining minnow rigs over brushpiles has been working, also. Trolling Triple Ripple rigs in deep water near creek-channel ledges up river works, as well. Good colors are acid rain, bubble gum chartreuse and green hornet.”
