Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – October 2006

GON Staff | September 25, 2006

Sinclair: Level: 0.9 feet low. Temp: 83-84 degrees. Clarity: Fairly stained.

Good. In October Aaron Batson likes banging dock posts with a chartreuse/blue-backed Bandit 200 crankbait. “It’s a wood thing,” said Aaron. “Fish move back to the secondary points and get on blowdowns and docks.” Look for a grass bite early. Aaron will throw a buzzbait and a Pop-R, but he also likes to work a Texas-rigged Dead-Ringer worm in junebug.

Crappie: Good. During the first part of October fish minnows in 10- to 20-foot brush. Robert Sellers will “pushes” minnows into brush using a spider-rig technique. Shooting docks will also work. Later in October expect the trolling bite to pick up as fish scatter from the brush and begin relating to shad in the backs of the coves and creeks. Turn to page 88 for more info.
