Lake Sinclair Fishing Report October 2016
Sinclair: Level: 1.2 feet low Temp: 83-88 degrees. Clarity: 2-3 foot visibility.
Bass: Tournament angler Mark Denney Jr. reports, “October is a great month to fish on Lake Sinclair as the bass begin to move shallow with the cooling water temperatures. As a majority of the fish begin to move away from their summer depths, targeting staging areas between the bank and main lake is always a good way to catch some fish during their fall transitions. A medium-diving crankbait or a Carolina rig are both good choices to catch fish that are now ready to actively feed following the dog days of summer. Look for fish to position themselves near seawalls and grass first thing in the morning in order to eat on shad and other baitfish. A white Pop-R or buzzbait are both good choices around these areas. If the bass are not willing to chase a topwater presentation, try slow-rolling a ChatterBait or spinnerbait around these same locations in order to pick off a few. The dock bite should continue to get better and better as fish are seeking out the cooler water temperatures up shallow. A shaky-head worm, Texas rig and jig are all good ways to catch a limit of fish when running this pattern once the sun has gotten up and positioned the fish under shade.”
