Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report January 2009

GON Staff | January 5, 2009

Tobesofkee: Level: 6 feet below full pool for special draw-down. Temp: 58-60 degrees. Clarity: Muddy.

Bass: Excellent. It is taking more than 20 pounds to win a tournament right now. “It’s unbelievable,” said Clayton Batts. “The pattern is very simple right now. Pick up a crankbait or Rat-L-Trap, and throw it all day, covering as much water as possible. Have a variety of crankbaits tied on to cover a variety of depth ranges. For the very shallow fish, throw a chrome-and-blue Spro Aruku Shad Jr. Throw the bait right on the bank, especially when the sun is out because the bites have been coming on the first three or four cranks. For the middle depth, throw a Spro Little John in firetiger or cell mate, or a Stanford Lures Razor Shad in firetiger. If the fish go a little bit deeper on the steeper banks, throw a No. 5 Fat Free Shad in citrus. The key is to just put the trolling motor down and cover as much water as possible until you find fish, and work that area over a couple of times.”
