Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report – August 2008
Tobesofkee: Level: Full pool. Clarity: Slight stain. Temp: 86-88.
Bass: Good early and late in the day, but the best bite has been after dark. “There have been several schools of fish schooling in the early morning and late afternoon,” said Clayton Batts. “Some of these fish are hybrids and stripers, but there are some good largemouths mixed in. You can catch some of these fish on topwater such as a Pop-R, but the better largemouths are up under the hybrids. To catch these fish throw a Stanford Lures Razor Shad in the sexy-shad color. The day bite has been slow, but the deeper brushpiles are still producing some fish. You want to throw a Carolina-rigged 6-inch Big Bite Baits finesse worm in plum apple or green pumpkin and move it at a moderate speed until you hit some brush or rock. When you hit the brush or rock, just dead-stick the bait in the brushpile. Another good pattern to try is fishing around Tobesofkee’s numerous docks. Try skipping a 1/16-oz. Big Bite Baits Fintwist jig head under these docks with a 4-inch finesse worm in the same colors. You will get a lot of bites doing this, but most of the fish are small. The night bite has been good all over the lake. Fish brushpiles around docks and on points. Throw dark-colored worms like black with blue flake all around the docks until you hit brush, and then get ready to get bit.”
