Lake Sinclair Fishing Report – September 2006
Sinclair: Level: 1.3 feet low. Temp: 88 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.
Bass: Fair. Aaron Batson said he hasn’t been on the water in a few weeks, but last September he got on a great bite fishing shallow grass edges. “I like a buzzbait early and late around these areas,” said Aaron. “Last year I was throwing a chartreuse buzzbait with chartreuse blades. Then I like a 3/16-oz. Texas rig with a six-inch junebug-colored Dead Ringer. Throw the bait in the grass, work it out and the bite should come on the edge in four and five feet of water.” Aaron’s best September grass bite was up the Little River between Boy Scout Island and Twin Bridges. Also, try up the Oconee River around Crooked Creek. Barry Stokes, who just won the Bobby’s Sinclair Series tournament, said last September he was on a pretty good spinnerbait bite. “I was actually getting bit on a double-willowleaf blade, even in muddy water,” said Barry. “Everyone else was catching some fish on double Colorados, but it’s almost like for the fish that were a little finicky they’d eat a bait with less thump.” Barry said he’s going to start expecting to see fish pull onto dock posts as they start pulling into pockets and creeks. “Besides the spinnerbait I like plastics — big worms, jigs and tubes,” said Barry. “Green pumpkin and black emerald are good colors. There’s also a good bite on rocks in the morning, almost like a shad-spawn pattern. Buzzbaits and spinnerbaits are good there.”
