Lake Tobesofkee Fishing Report – September 2008
Tobesofkee: Level: Full pool. Temp: 86-89. Clarity: Slight stain.
Bass: Fair. “Bass fishing has been tough due to all the boat traffic and hot August temperatures,” said Clayton Batts. For daytime fishing, Clayton recommends skipping a small jig under docks. “Throw a Big Bite Baits 1/16-oz. Fintwist jig head with a green-pumpkin or red-bug finesse worm as far under the dock as you can get it, and work it back as slow as you can stand.” Also try the light jig fished in brushpiles on rocky main-lake points and humps. “I’ve been getting bites after letting the bait sit in the brush for as long as 30 to 45 seconds, then barely move it and dead stick it again,” Clayton said. First thing in the mornings try topwater plugs like a Spro Hydro Pop or a black Picasso buzzbait around the grassbeds and seawalls, but the best bite is at night. “Throw your darker-colored plastics such as junebug or black. The fish have been moving up a little shallower at night and have been holding on the outside posts and brush around docks. There have also been some fish caught around the few dock lights on a white Stanford Lures Razor Shad. As we move into September, look for the bait to start balling up and the bass to start feeding more. This is the time to break out the crankbaits and start covering water. Look for any bait along points heading from the main lake back into the pockets. When you get one bite, throw back to the same spot because there is probably more than one fish there. September is also a great topwater month. Fish a Spro Hydro Pop around seawalls and grass where bait is present, and also keep a close eye out for schooling fish this month.”
