Lake Seminole Fishing Report August 2010
Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 86 to 92 degrees. Clarity: Clear. Note: The corps is hammering the grass. “Spring Creek has been the target thus far, with grass nearly gone from Sealy’s up. They are spraying it with some type of chemical on airboats, and it works in just a few days. We went out today and saw one of the airboats heading over to the Hooch. I heard they were killing all of the pad fields. It is definitely changing things on Seminole,” said Matt Baty. GON will have more on the Seminole grass in future issues.
Bass: Poor. Jim Murray Jr. reports, “The summer heat has settled in and the fish have begun to feel the effects of the hot, humid days. This along with an extensive grass-eradication program has all but shut the fish down. The grass in Spring Creek has been severely affected from this program. Topwater early and late has been fair. Lures such as buzzbaits, frogs or a CBT Hawg Popper have been productive. Once the sun gets up, flipping matted vegetation with heavy weights has been producing quality fish as well.” Matt reports, “The fishing has gotten tough over the past couple of weeks. There is still a good early morning topwater bite if you are in the right spot. Grassbeds that are near the river channel on the main lake have seemed to be producing a little better. For topwater, use a Spro Dawg 100 in old glory. When the topwater bite is over, fish the same areas with a Texas-rig. Use a Big Bite Baits 6-inch Kreit Tail Worm in watermelon or tilapia on a 1/4-oz. Tungsten weight, 4/0 Gamakatsu off-set hook, and 20-lb. Sunline flourocarbon.”
