Sinclair: Level: 1.7 feet low. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Some stain.
Bass: Tournament angler Mark Denney Jr. reports, “Fishing can be tough in the fall as temperatures continue to drop and the water turns over on Lake Sinclair. Bass are transitioning from their summer patterns and becoming more active as the bait migrates to the backs of pockets and creeks. Although some of your best fishing can often take place during the winter months, unstable weather conditions always seem to put fish in a funk this time of year and can make them difficult to catch. Topwater presentations, such as a frog, Pop-R or a buzzbait, around grass and docks will generate some bites first thing in the mornings as most of the water temperatures are still in the 70s. Before the sun gets up, target rocks with a crankbait to capitalize on the fish that are using these areas to feed on crawfish and other bait. Once the sun begins to position fish under shade, try throwing a Buckeye Lures jig with a Zoom Speed Craw and a Buckeye Lures Spot Remover head paired with a Zoom Finesse worm around docks, blowdowns and other cover. The decreased boat traffic during November allows for good fishing conditions, but don’t forget to wear your life jacket and practice boater safety at all times. Good luck, and God bless.”
