Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – May 2007
Sinclair: Level: 1.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 68-69 degrees. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Good: Even though the bass aren’t on the docks like they usually are this time of year, Barry Stokes said he has been catching lots of smaller postspawn fish with spinnerbaits or Trick Worms in the grass. He suggested a 3/8-oz. spinnerbait in chartreuse with a white skirt with gold Colorado blades. Barry also said the fish are biting around the seawalls on a Texas-rigged Trick Worm or a Cold Steel Walking Worm rigged wacky style, in red shad or green pumpkin. Early in the morning, the topwater bite should be on around the grass or seawalls. Pop-Rs, buzzbaits or a frog should catch fish around the grass, seawalls or a shad spawn. Long secondary points that stretch out close to channels can also be productive this time of year for fishing a Carolina-rigged worm in green pumpkin.
Crappie: Good. Allan Brown said the spawn is about done, but the fish are still biting. “They’re hammering them under the docks right now,” he said. Blue and blue/black have been good colors for jigs to flip under the docks. In May, Allan said the fish will begin moving out under some of the deeper docks.
