I recently moved from Mississippi where I focused mostly on catching crappie in the shallow lakes year round. I know Allatoona has a decent crappie spawn but tough to catch em all year. I am mostly interested in learning the lake for spots and largemouth. Have had some decent success on texas rigged worms and mini lizards along the rocky banks and man laid riprap but no great numbers yet with any tactic. I come out of sixes creek across the main channel from sweet water creek. That end of the lake is where I tend to focus my attention. Any tips or advice for summer bass fishing on Allatoona would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and tight lines to all!
Southern Mississippi Transplant myself. I take it your from Northern end since you like to crappie fish year round (aka Sardis, Enid, Arkabutla). If you want the best crappie fishing in our area Weiss is where it's at. Fishes fairly similar to those Northern Miss Lakes. Lots of differences between the northern Miss lakes and here in GA, clear water being one and almost zero largemouth (90% spotted bass). The big standby baits here are dropshot and jig head worms. Those really catch fish pretty much year round. The thing with areas is they change daily. There is no to very little cover to keep fish in a area very long so they are constantly traveling trying to keep up with the bait fish. But points and bluffs always hold fish anything near deep water will be high percentage areas. We use alot of small diameter flourocarbon for our slow moving baits and on sissy rods and reels. That will put a decent dent in your learning curve.
