Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report October 2012

GON Staff | September 26, 2012

Tobesofkee: Clayton Batts reports, “The water temperature is beginning to cool down, and the fish are spreading out. This makes the fishing a little tougher during this transition time but should get better by mid October. The key to finding fish this time of year, regardless the depth, is baitfish. Look for bait in the mouths of the pockets at the beginning of October and continue to move farther back as the month goes on. There has been a good topwater bite on a Pop-R or buzzbait around seawalls and grass leading into the pockets, and this pattern should hold strong to mid October or longer depending on the weather. Crankbaits and spinnerbaits should begin to turn on by mid October. Fish a Stanford Lures Patriot Shad in any shad color or a white Picasso spinnerbait around the pockets where bait is present. I also like to throw a Spro Aruku Shad or a Fish Head Spin in the middle of the pockets if there is active bait. If you catch a few fish in the pocket, it’s always good to slow down and flip any available cover with a black/blue Strikezone Lures jig with a Big Bite Baits green-pumpkin trailer.”
