Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – May 2009
Sinclair: Level: 1.1 feet below full. Temp: 65-71 degrees. Clarity: The lower end is stained, but the upper ends are still heavily stained.
Bass: Mike Cleveland said a few bass are still on the bed, and the shad spawn has kicked off in the mid-lake area. The Little River arm has yet to see any flickering shad at daylight due to cooler water temperatures. For the first few hours of a May morning Mike will throw a white/chartreuse buzzbait or spinnerbait. He likes double willowleaf blades to match the shad. Look on any rock or seawall for activity. When the sun gets up, Mike pitches jigs on docks in 2 to 6 feet of water. He’ll focus on the backs of the pockets all the way out to the mouths, working a 3/8-oz. black/blue jig. He’ll also pitch an Ol Monster worm pegged with a 3/16- or 1/4-oz. weight. Black grape is his preferred color.
