Lake Seminole Fishing Report April 2011

GON Staff | March 30, 2011

Seminole: Level: 0.5 feet below full pool. Temp: 69 degrees. Clarity: Clearing.

Bass: Good. “The bass are nearing the end of the spawn, but some fish can still be found on beds,” said Matt Baty. “The main-lake sandbars near the dam are good places to look because these will be some of the last places where bass will bed. When you find bedding bass, Big Bite Baits has a new bait out called the Warmouth. It is designed to fish on beds because when rigged Texas-style with a 5/0 Gamakatsu Superline hook, it resembles a bream feeding on the bass eggs. I have been using the bait as a prototype now for about a month, and it is simply amazing how fast the fish will react to it. It should be in stores pretty soon. The other pattern that is emerging is a topwater and crankbait bite near spawning shad. Shad will spawn where topped-out vegetation is present, such as lily pads and hydrilla. A good way to catch bass on spawning shad is to throw a topwater bait such as a Spro Dawg 100 in Old Glory, or a Spro Fat John in Nasty Shad.”
