"LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, 61 DEGREES, MOSTLY STAINED. Bass fishing is fair and the weather will soon stabilize and the bass will start biting better. With the stable weather the bass will head to the shallows to spawn. Focus your efforts in major creeks like Rooty and Crooked creeks and fish from the bank out to 4 or 6 feet. Texas rig plastic continues to be your best option with tubes and crawfish type baits producing the best. Green pumpkin, June bug, blueberry and redbug have been producing well, as color options. Shallow docks are holding some of the larger fish that have spawned and can be caught on a beaver or creature bait in junebug or other darker color patterns. If the front of the dock has more than five feet of water, don't waste your time fishing it. Move on to a shallower dock. The best news of all is that a decent top water bite has started in the last couple of days on shallow flats. Fish a Pop R or other type chugger bait slowly with long pauses, or try a Zoom horny toad over the grass beds moving it as slowly as possible. “The Southern Fishing Report” By Ken Sturdivant 106 Hickory Ridge 770 889 2654 Cumming, Georgia 30040 http://www.havefunfishing.com/"

"March 4, 2011 LAKE SINCLAIR IS DOWN 1.3 FEET, 58 DEGREES, MOSTLY STAINED. Bass fishing is fair and the stable weather will have the fish ready for the shallow spawning activity. Use the Zoom Flukes, lipless rattling crank baits like the Rat L Traps, Rattlin’ Raps and the Berkeley Frenzy, Sassy Shad, and the 3/8 Rooster Tails. Bass are on and around flats, long points and also creek channels and docks in the creeks. Some fish are extremely shallow now and are roaming in water 5 feet deep or less. Zoom trick worms and Senko’s will work on the docks down lake. Also the Strike King spinner baits and Chatter baits are starting to work. Bright colors are important as the water is stained. Use these baits with loud colors and bright blades. Small 6a Bombers in fire tiger have been working after mid day. Early in the day, McStick jerk baits can be worked with a slow jerking motion and this will attract a hungry curious bass. “The Southern Fishing Report” By Ken Sturdivant 106 Hickory Ridge 770 889 2654 Cumming, Georgia 30040 http://www.havefunfishing.com"

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
At 56 degree water temperature largemouth bass fishing is in pre-spawn now. It's time to get fishing. Female bass are going to be moving up to the spawning beds. Male largemouth bass will be starting to build the spawning nests in protected coves. Bass prefer to spawn in weedy and woody cover deep in coves that will be protected from the wind and other elements. This is the best time to catch the lake record bass. The female bass will be feeding until they reach the beds and start the spawn. The smaller male bass will be attacking lures also. It is on like donkey kong!!! Hit the water NOW, we can?t believe you are reading this and not fishing right now. GET OUT!!

Lake Sinclair Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Crappie should be getting ready to spawn. Stay out in deeper water and look for schools. Schooling shad will be harder to find with this water temperature so when you find it, stay on it. Crappie schools will be breaking up quite a bit getting ready for the spawn. Also try fishing shallower with small crank baits and spinners on the warm banks with direct sunlight. This is a great time to be on the water.

Lake Sinclair Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
The catfish family comprises of blue catfish, flathead catfish and channel catfish. Since catfish are warm water fish, they aren’t going to be very active in this water temperature. They will still be feeding, but catfish will only be found very deep and feeding very slowly. Your best bet is give some of the more active fish species in your lake a shot until the cats are active again.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

New Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at the same time of day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The new moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, its always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today?s solar/lunar peaks. Have a great day!
