Latest Allatoona Fishing Report
Allatoona November 2014 Fishing Report
Allatoona: Level: 5.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 70 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament angler Matt Driver reports, “November on Allatoona is great. Most are in the woods chasing deer. The cranking bite is fired up. A wide variety of baits and depth are needed to catch bass this month. At the end of October, the fish were still really shallow and will continue that way until the water drops out of the 60s. Square bill and other shallow cranks are key to start the...

Latest Bartletts Ferry Fishing Report
Bartletts Ferry November 2014 Fishing Report
Bartletts Ferry: Level: Full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Tournament angler Dennis Hudson reports that bass fishing is improving some, but it is still not very good. “The cooler water temperature has helped some, but we’re still several weeks away from it getting good. We are starting to see some square-billed crankbait bites on secondary points, creek mouths and along some seawalls, and that’s a good sign, but we need the water temperature to...

Latest Blackshear Fishing Report
Blackshear November 2014 Fishing Report
Blackshear: Level: Full pool. Temp: 69-71 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Crappie: Rusty Parker reports, “The crappie have been on fire here lately. I have been fortunate enough to limit out four or five times in the past three weeks. A couple weeks ago, they were being caught mostly in shallower water, but recently they have moved back into deeper channel ledges. On the Hwy 280 bridge, I have great luck fishing the west-side channel ledge tight-lining minnows and pitching R.A.G....

Bass: Guide Wes Carlton reports, “The spotted bass have been showing up in huge schools over the main-lake points. They are chasing the herring and gorging themselves. We have had fun the past few trips catching these fish on Sammys and Spooks. White crankbaits have...

Latest Carters Fishing Report
Carters November 2014 Fishing Report
Carters: Level: 1 foot below full pool. Temp: 69 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Guide Louie Bartenfield reports, “Fishing remains good and is improving. Fish are scattered in the water column right now, and my guys have been catching fish in shallow, mid-depth and deep levels each day. The majority of spotted bass are in 12 to 18 feet right now. Spotsticker jig heads and drop shots tipped with a Big Bite Shaking Squirrel or shad-pattern soft plastic are my best baits...

Latest Clarks Hill Fishing Report
Clarks Hill November 2014 Fishing Report
Clarks Hill: Level: 5 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid to low 70s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Good. Tournament fisherman William Hooker reports, “Most of the fish we have been catching have been on 3/8-oz. spinnerbaits and jigs in the grass. Both the baits are custom-made at Green Fish Tackle for me. I also fished with O’Neal Robertson during the week, and we smashed the fish on topwater baits. We kept a two-man limit of hybrids in the 3- to 6-lb. range and released the 17...

Latest Eufaula Fishing Report
Eufaula November 2014 Fishing Report
Eufaula: Level: 0.5 feet below 190 full pool. Temp: Low 70s. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: “The fishing on Lake Eufaula is hit or miss right now,” said tournament angler Les Bratcher. “Some fish are being caught both shallow and some deep. Most anglers are making the choice one way or the other and sticking with it. The Eufaula Bass Trail fished Saturday (Oct. 18) with 21.52 pounds taking first place. The bags varied from shallow to deep, but overall it was...

Latest Hartwell Fishing Report
Hartwell November 2014 Fishing Report
Hartwell: Level: 4.2 feet below full pool. Temp: 66-69 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament fisherman Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing is really starting to pick up now, and there is a lot of schooling activity with the cooler water temps. Most of the bass seem to be on the secondary pockets at the creek mouths and along the major pockets. This is one of my favorite times of the year to throw the Zoom Super Fluke because the bass are chasing bait and are very...

Latest Jackson Fishing Report
Jackson November 2014 Fishing Report
Jackson: Level: 0.6 feet above full pool. Temp: 65-69 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Bass: Aaron Batson reports, “Bass fishing is good. Spots are the most consistent bite and are chasing bait in the pockets down the lake. Work a Lucky Craft Pointer 78 in the ditches and flats. Also, try to yo-yo a Fish Head Spin on these places. You can slow down and work a light Carolina rig or split-shot rigged Trixster Money Maker worm for more bites. Add some JJ’s Magic dye to the...

Latest Lanier Fishing Report
Lanier November 2014 Fishing Report
Lanier: Level: 2.8 feet below full pool. Temp: High 60s. Clarity: Lightly stained in the backs of the creeks, and clear on the main lake both north and south.

Spotted Bass: Good. Guide and tournament pro Ryan Coleman reports, “The lake is turning over all throughout the lake. The areas of turnover pretty much changes every day.

Oconee November 2014 Fishing Report
Oconee: Level: 0.3 feet below full pool. Temp: High 60s to low 70s. Clarity: Light stain up the rivers, and clear on the main lake.

Bass: Good. Tournament fisherman Aaron Batson reports, “Fish are feeding up on shad in the very backs of creeks. Try a Rat-L-Trap or square-billed, shallow-running crankbait in the very backs of major creeks. Fish will be found near massive schools of baitfish. Most of these fish will be smaller keepers. Bigger bass are being caught under the...

Latest Russell Fishing Report
Russell November 2014 Fishing Report
Russell: Level: 1.0 feet below full pool. Temp: 65-69 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Bass: Kerry Partain reports, “The bass fishing is sporadic right now with fish in a couple different patterns. You can catch a lot of spots in some of the major creek pockets, especially if there is some scattered timber. Most of the fish seem to be holding in 10 to 20 feet, and you can catch them on a drop shot once you locate them. As you search for shad and bass activity, you can catch...

Latest Saltwater Fishing Report
Saltwater November 2014 Fishing Report
Saltwater: Inshore: Capt. David Newlin reports, “The trout and redfish have been biting. As usual, the October fishing has been hot. I have caught the limit of redfish every trip in October. Last Thursday, Oct. 23, we caught the limit and released around 50 more. The redfish have been hitting almost anything that you throw at them. As always, a live shrimp is the best bait almost always. I have caught a lot on different Gulp baits. A white swimming mullet Gulp under a cork has worked great...

Latest Seminole Fishing Report
Seminole November 2014 Fishing Report
Seminole: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp. Low 70s. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass are on a white frog and a watermelon worm. Carolina rigs are beginning to work on the Chattahoochee, as are deep-diving crankbaits in lavender shad (DD22 14). Fish Nichols spinnerbaits in crystal. I have also have been using 1 1/2-oz. spinnerbaits in 5 and 7 feet of water in scattered hydrilla. I am plowing these heavy spinnerbaits with 20-lb. mono to get the...

Latest Sinclair Fishing Report
Sinclair November 2014 Fishing Report
Sinclair: Level: 1.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 67-70 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.

Bass: Fair. Tournament fisherman Aaron Batson reports, “Fish are being caught on topwaters like Pop-Rs and Sammys. Also work a fluke on a jig head down the center of pockets for huge numbers of keepers. Grass is still holding quality fish, and they are being caught on Senko-type baits, like a Trixster Tamale worm. They are hand-poured baits and are catching lots of bass for us right...

Latest Tobesofkee Fishing Report
Tobesofkee November 2014 Fishing Report
Tobesofkee: Temp: 76 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Tournament pro Clayton Batts reports, “The bass have started making their move back into the pockets following the bait. The bait is already in the backs of the pockets, but the bass haven’t found them yet. Look for fish at the mouths of the pockets in the first week of November and steadily progress toward the backs of the pockets as the month goes on. The key to this bite is following the bait by either seeing bait...

Latest Weiss Fishing Report
Weiss November 2014 Fishing Report
Weiss: Level: 2.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 69-71 degrees. Clarity: Clear to lightly stained.

Bass: Guide Mark Collins reports, “Bass fishing is good. A lot of fish are moving shallow in the bays and coves following the shad. Rat-L-Traps, flat-sided crankbaits and spinnerbaits are producing good right now. Look for a lot more fish to move shallow as the water cools more.”

Crappie: Guide Mark Collins reports, “Crappie fishing is great. They are on...

Latest West Point Fishing Report
West Point November 2014 Fishing Report
West Point: Level: 4.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 65-72 degrees. Clarity: Mostly clear.

Bass: Good. Guide Keith Hudson reports, “As the weather continues to cool down and the lake level continues to drop, expect more fish, especially spotted bass, to stack up on structure such as humps, ledges, roadbeds and brushpiles in 15 to 20 feet of water. Drop-shot worms, jigging spoons or a green-pumpkin 1/2-oz. football head jig are good choices for deeper mixed fish. For...
