Lake Sinclair Fishing Report June 2014

GON Staff | May 28, 2014

Sinclair: Level: 1.0 feet below full pool. Temp: 70-74 degrees. Clarity: Lightly stained to clear at the dam.

Bass: Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Fish are scattered from 3 to 25 feet. Early in the day, work a buzzbait or topwater plug around seawalls and grass for a few bites. This won’t last long as the sun pushes fish out deeper quickly. Look in 15 to 25 feet of water, and work a Carolina rig, drop-shot worm or a 3/4-oz. Net Boy Baits Football Jig. Look for hard-bottom points and humps. Brushpiles can also produce some bites.”

Guide Chad Smith reports, “Over the last few weeks the catfish bite on Lake Sinclair has been good. We are catching quite a few 25- to 30-lb. blue cats. The best technique has been drifting over big flats in 10 to 15 feet of water using big cut chunks of bluegill. Over the next few weeks look for the blue cats to go shallow preparing for the spawn. Start fishing baits close to blowdowns, brushpiles and clay banks around the lake. These fish will be in water less then 10 feet. The best way to fish these areas will be to anchor and cast baits around the structure.”
