"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):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 80 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Lake Sinclair Crappie Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Your lake crappie will be much more lethargic in the water temperature. They will be in deeper and cooler water. Crappie will be feeding; however they will not be feeding aggressively unless the other fishing factors are at prime levels. Find some moving water that is clear and you should find some more aggressive fishing.

Lake Sinclair Catfish Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Catfish Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Unlike most North American fish species, blue catfish, flathead and channel catfish are comfortable when the water temperature is this high. They will be feeding and moving in typical patterns. You will start having a little better luck if you can get to some moving water that is adding a little more oxygen for the baitfish and the catfish will be there also.

Current Lunar Fishing Tip:

The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be a new moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
