Lake Sinclair Fishing Report May 2014
Sinclair: Level: 1.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 65-70 degrees. Clarity: Lightly stained.
Bass: Very good. Guide and tournament pro Walker Smith reports, “Fishing on Sinclair is excellent lake wide. Anything you wanna throw will catch fish in shallow water. When it’s sunny, use bottom-oriented baits. When it’s cloudy, start using reaction lures. If it looks fishy, it probably has one on it. My clients and I have had some 80- to 100-fish days lately, but anything over 4 pounds is a little tougher to come by. You can target fish in all stages of the spawn right now. Seems like every creek is at a different point.” Tournament angler Aaron Batson reports, “Bass fishing has been good for numbers. The spawn has just about finished up, and fish are hanging around shallow cover guarding fry. Look around docks, seawalls and blowdowns, and work a Texas-rigged lizard or Net Boy Baits 1/4-oz. Flippin Jig. Add JJ’s Magic to soft plastics for more bites. You can also find some bass looking for spawning shad. Fish buzzbaits and spinnerbaits around these places. All-white blades and skirts are good. Later this month, fish will move off the banks and stage in 10 to 12 feet of water. Carolina-rigged Wackem Crazy Baits Pointy Tail worms will load the boat. Use redbug or junebug colors.”
