Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – June 2010
Sinclair: Level: 0.1 feet above full pool. Temp: Mid to high 70s. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Good. Mike Stalnaker said he’d be fishing the shallow grassy pockets early with a black buzzbait for the big bite. If they don’t want a buzzbait, try a topwater jerkbait. Once the topwater bite is over, it’ll be time to fish docks. Mike likes the last five docks in the backs of the pockets, and he’ll work his way out. For a big fish, flip a 3/8-oz. jig in black and blue for muddy water and a crawfish pattern for clear water. If you’re just trying to fill a limit, fish a 1/8- or 1/4-oz. shaky head jig with a red-shad or junebug finesse worm. If he can’t get them to bite off those back docks, Mike will skip the middle docks and head out to docks on the points and throw those same baits. “Don’t count out the cranking bite,” Mike said. He likes to ride the points checking his graph for isolated stumps in 10 to 14 feet of water. Once he marks one, he’ll back off of it and bounce a Deep Fat Free Shad in citrus color off of it. Also, the rip-rap at Little River can produce some good action early on a suspending jerkbait in shad colors.
