Lake Tobesofkee

Lake Tobesofkee is a small 1,800-acre reservoir located on Tobesofkee Creek in Bibb County just outside of Macon. When the weather warms, Tobesofkee is a busy little lake, and fishing can be frustrating on weekends. Night fishing for bass is very good in the summer months. The lake is owned and operated by the city of Macon. Located three miles from I-475, the Lake Tobesofkee Recreation Area has three public parks named Claystone, Sandy Beach and Arrowhead. Besides facilities for fishing, camping, boating and tennis, the parks have three white sand beaches for swimming or picnicking. Arrowhead Park includes mountain bike trails.

Another good way to catch numbers this time of year is fishing main-lake humps and points in 10 to 12 feet of water. There are not too many areas that they will get out deep on Tobesofkee, but they can be found by idling around with your Lowrance graphs. Most of these areas have been beat up pretty good but will continue to produce fish. Try a drop shot fished very slowly on the bottom or vertically dropped to the fish that you see on the graph, or throw a citrus-colored crankbait when the school is actively feeding. My favorite…
