Hello All....
Moved from GA over 20 yrs ago to TX.
My sister moved from ATL to Lake Sinclair.... she has sent me some
pics of the lake and it has my interest up.

Thinking of dragging my crappie boat over for a vist in May.
Whats the Crappie fishing like there??

Any hints or suggestions to put a few fresh slabs on her
dinner table??

Not asking for your Honey Holes.... just general suggestions.

Thanks, Sniper (Texas Fishing Forum)

I wish I were closer to Sinclair, I would. I have been trying to get the GFF participation up all over the state, but it's a slow uphill climb. I fished the lake twice back in 2008 and really liked it. Lots of boat docks and decent variety of structure. I'm not sure about crappie, but I would bet it is loaded with some big ol slabs! A lot of docks have fishing lights and rod holders on them, and brushpiles! If you go down there, please feel free to give us a report.

I fished it a lot years ago. I think that every dock on that lake had brush piles either under the dock or directly in front. I can't count the number of nice bass I lost under the docks on 4 and 6lb test when I would take the wife crappie fishing. Some of the best crappie fishing in Ga at that time.
Best lures we used were 1/8 oz jig with small red/white tube lures. Best luck when skipped under docks. I had best luck skipping lure even when I had room to cast. Sometimes they would attack it before it sank 6 inches. Hope this helps some and good luck.

Well.... I did go to Sinclair. Towed my boat from TX to check out the lake and the surrounding area.
Had a blow out less than 100mi from home on less than 2 yr old trailer tires. And yes, I had the
correct amout of air (50psi) and wasnt speeding (65mph). So who knows what happened!!!

Ended up buying 2 new tires along the way as my other tire had a bubble in the sidewall.
Dang Chinese POS tires.... Stopped at a maw n paw tire store in nowhere TX...
(ever heard of AKURET brand tires, me either, but I had no choice at the time.) A internet search
revealed only BAD reports on that brand, so I have already replace them with other Chinese
made tires that have a better reputation.

I let the store I bought the AKURET tires from dispose of my blown out tire, as well as the bubble/sidewall
tire only to get home 2 wks later and find the bill of sale and warranty that indicated both were
under warranty for full replacement still (dang, that hurt).

Anyway..... for my 1st time on the lake I caught a few, and scouted several likely areas.
Only 1 issue with the boat- the fuse to the running lights has some surface corrosion on it
and all my lights went out at 11pm. But some quick work with a small piece of emory cloth
resolved that.

I am working with a real estate office now to find a place on the lake to buy. Retirement
back home to Ga is getting closer every day! I am back in TX now- and looking at another
trip this fall to Sinclair around the 1st week of December.

Any hints of how to locate the FALL CRAPPIES????

Tight lines! Sniper

I've got some friends down in Macon that used fish competitively for Crappie and won several tournaments on Sinclair. I will see if I can find them and get you some info. I am from Texas and may end up back there some day. I love north Georgia and the Appalachians so that may be a tough one. I too, am nearing retirement (my plan is set for 4 more years and should have my 401K where I want it). Good luck on the lake house, there are some nice ones down there!
