Fish­ing re­ports

Ac­cord­ing to have­fun­fiAc­cord­ing to have­fun­fish­, Lake Oconee is full, clear and be­tween 8489 de­grees.

Start off at deep wa­ter docks and work a shakey head with a Zoom shakey head worm int eh wa­ter­melon color.

You can also fish the deep wa­ter humps when Ge­or­gia Power is mov­ing wa­ter. On these deep humps go to a deep div­ing crank bait.

You can use a Nor­man DD22 in a nat­u­ral shad pat­tern fished off the hump, or use a Carolina rig. Use a short leader of 12-18 inch with a green Zoom U tail worm.

As the wa­ter cools look for the fish to move to shal­lower wa­ter.

Ac­cord­ing to have­fun­fish­, Lake Sin­clair is down 2.78, 81 de­grees and mostly stained.

Bass fish­ing is good but an­glers will need to go through a lot of fish to get to the larger-sized ones.

Many fish have be­gun mov­ing into coves and creeks as wa­ter tem­per­a­tures drop.

The prime depth seems to be four-eight feet, ac­cord­ing to hafe­fun­fish­ing. com, al­though some bass can be deeper int eh same area. Docks, boat houses, brush piles and blow downs are all hold­ing fish. Jigs and soft plas­tics have been the pri­mary baits to try af­ter the early morn­ing.

Top wa­ter and spin­ner baits are also work­ing dur­ing the first hour of the morn­ing. A short leader Carolina rig should be tried along the sides and front of docks. A ¼ to 3/8 ounce jig should also be tried un­der and around the docks.

Feel free to send pic­tures of your lat­est catch, tro­phy or daily bag. fish­, Jack­son Lake is down 2.91 feet, clear and 81 de­grees, and bass fish­ing is good. Use the no. 4 jointed Shad Rap off the points along the main chan­nels. The Shad Rap in the No. 5 in fire tiger and the DT10 in the hot mus­tard are the best col­ors up lake.

Most of the fish be­ing caught are small spots. Pig and jigs in any com­bi­na­tion of brown seem to be work- ing as well. Work these jigs slow around any and all wood in both shal­low and deep wa­ter and don’t for­get to work docks from all sides and an­gles.

The ¼ to 3/8 ounce jigs with small pork trail­ers are your best bet and add gar­lic scent. Carolina rigged worms off the points are catch­ing the ma­jor­ity of spots.

Pump­kin seed, green pumkin and wa­ter­melon seed are all work­ing when us­ing the Carolina rig with 1/4- to ½ ounce weights.
