Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – November 2006
Sinclair: Level: 1.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 70 degrees. Clarity: Fairly clear, light stain up the Little River.
Bass: Great. Aaron Batson got on a great bite last month, and it should still be going on. He’s cranking a new plug from Stanford Lures called a Pug. It’s a square-billed, shallow-running crankbait. “You’ve got shad moving shallow this time of year, and that plug must mimic those shad perfectly,” said Aaron. “The color is blue-shad; you have to order it online.” Aaron has been running blowdowns with his new bait. “We’ve been fishing the ends of the blowdowns in six to eight feet of water, and they’ve been killing it.” Aaron said a shallow wood pattern — blowdowns, stumps and dock posts — will hold until the water hits about 60 degrees, which could come around Thanksgiving. At this time work points with a Carolina-rigged green-pumpkin finesse worm or a Spot Remover. Fish will begin to key on rocks as they look for heat. Deeper docks with jigs will continue to be good.
