Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report February 2013
Tobesofkee: Level: 4 feet below full pool. Temp: 58 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Tournament angler and guide Clayton Batts reports, “Tobesofkee will be down for the first few weeks of February. Fish fast when the lake is down, targeting 1 to 6 feet of water for the bigger fish, and slow down on humps and points out deep to catch keeper fish. My favorite baits to throw shallow are a 3/8- and 1/2-oz. Spro Aruku Shad in chrome-blue, Spro Little John in spring-craw, Stanford Lures Patriot Shad in summer shad and a Stanford Lures Razor Shad in chartreuse-Tennessee. Throw a 3/8-oz. Picasso jig or a hematoma Fighting Frog teamed up with a 3/8-oz. Fish Catchin Fool tungsten weight around any dock post or brush that you come by. Look for the bite to slow down some when the lake returns to full pool, but it will heat up again very soon with a bunch of fish beginning to move shallow to feed up to spawn by the end of February. The Aruku Shad bite will be back on at this time as well as a good spinnerbait bite. Throw a 3/8-oz. chartreuse/white Picasso spinnerbait around the dead grass and docks that are around spawning pockets, and throw the Aruku Shad in the middle of the pockets to target the fish that are out in the middle chasing bait around. The other option is targeting the fish that are still out on the main lake and haven’t began to move in yet. Fish main-lake points and humps with a green-pumpkin Picasso football jig and a green-pumpkin Carolina-rigged Big Bite Baits finesse worm teamed up with a 3/4-oz. Fish Catchin Fool tungsten weight.” See page 66 for a feature on Tobesofkee with Clayton Batts.
