Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report – October 2009
Tobesofkee: Level: Full pool. Temp: 80 to 82 degrees. Clarity: The lake is still surprisingly pretty clear considering all the rain.
Bass: Good. “The bass are starting to move shallow and make their way into the pockets,” said Clayton Batts. “The early morning topwater bite has been exceptional, as well as in the evenings. Throw a Spro Hydropop on 17-lb. Gamma Copolymer around grass that has 2 to 3 feet of water on it and around points that the seawalls make. When the sun comes up, fish around docks that are leading back into the pockets, starting at the front docks and working your way all the way back. Remember how far you are back when you start getting bit and stop getting bit, and run that pattern in the pockets on the rest of the lake. There will be a good crankbait bite around seawalls and secondary points starting about halfway through this month. Try throwing a Spro Little John in citrus or spooky shad colors depending on the water color. If we have a cool October, look for the jig bite to start kicking in at the end of the month. Throw a Spro finesse jig in black/blue around rocky banks and red-clay banks. The main thing to remember when finding fish in October is finding the bait because the bass will not be far.”
