Lake Sinclair Fishing Report March 2019

GON Staff | February 26, 2019

Sinclair: Level:0.5 feet low. Temp: Mid 50s. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Tournament angler Mark Denney Jr.reports, “March is a great time to be on the water as fish become more predictable for traditional springtime patterns and start to relate to visible cover in shallower depths. With warming temperature trends, look for bass to start spawning in shallow coves and pockets across the lake. A Texas-rigged Lake Fork Trophy Lures Hyper Lizard paired with a 3/16-oz. tungsten weight is perfect for fancasting to target bedding fish in these areas. Spawning fish are notorious for biting a lure and spitting it out, so don’t be afraid to make multiple casts to the same spot if you find yourself getting bit but failing to connect on the hookset. Slow rolling a spinnerbait around grass edges can be a solid pattern first thing in the morning, and I usually switch to a shallow-running crankbait, such as a Blademaster Lures Suddeth Big Boss Hawg, as the fish transition to deeper water once the sun gets up. When fishing docks, I love skipping a Lake Fork Whack N Worm on spinning tackle to reach the back posts of docks as these hard-to-reach places typically hold bedding fish this time of year. Lake Fork Trophy Lures has many wacky-rig terminal tackle accessories to help increase your efficiency, such as wacky hooks and ring weights to help those light soft plastics sink to the bottom a little faster. Cover water until you find a productive area, but keep in mind that once you get a few bites, it is important to slow down and milk that section of the lake to catch any fish you may have missed on the initial pass.”
