Lake Sinclair bass fishing is on fire right now. Most fish have made the transition to the shallows as the water temperature finally broke 60 degrees. It seems like more and more fish are moving up every day. Concentrate your efforts in or around protected spawning pockets for the next month or so. Many of the fish are staging on the primary and secondary points, but they will cruise back in the pockets at random times throughout the day looking for a good place to spawn. A spinnerbait is hard to beat right now for both numbers and quality. A chartreuse Buckeye Lures spinnerbait with double gold Colorado blades will get bites most days. Cover water with your trolling motor, throwing the spinnerbait at any piece of cover you see. These fish will be shallow on the sea walls, backsides of docks, blowdowns, and grass beds. Once you locate a pocket with fish, slow down and fish it again with a soft plastic. A Texas rigged junebug Zoom lizard fished around dock walkways and sea walls will get many quality bites over the next few weeks.
