Lake Sinclair Fishing Report March 2012

GON Staff | February 29, 2012

Sinclair: Level: Full pool. Temp: 52-58 degrees. Clarity: Muddy up the rivers, stained in the mid-lake and clear near the dam.

Bass: Aaron Batson reports, “This month all fish will be shallow or moving quickly that way. Look for them to get on wood and grass. Seawalls and docks will produce well. Target these fish with Net Boy Baits jigs and Texas-rigged Zoom plastics. Grass fish can be caught by burning a 1/4-oz., all-white Ol’ Nelle spinnerbait over the tops of grassbeds and around the edges also. Late in the month some fish will be on beds. A 5-inch Senko or lizard dipped in JJ’s Magic will catch them.” Small crankbaits like Shad Raps and Little Earls will produce bass that are in ditches heading toward spawning flats. With stained water, chartreuse plugs will work best.

Good. “Crappie fishing is turning on,“ said Allan Brown. “Fish have moved into shallow water in all major creeks and coves. Troll 1/32-oz. jigs over flats close to deep water and around any structure you can find. Fish can also be caught shooting docks as well with 1/32-oz. jigs. Look for them under docks with 6 to 8 feet of water. Best colors are black/blue/black, red/green/yellow and black/pink/green.”
