Lake Seminole Fishing Report August 2011

GON Staff | July 28, 2011

Seminole: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temp: 86 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Good. Matt Baty reports, “The recent rains have added a little stain and current to the lake. The fish are really relating to grass points all over the lake right now. You can target these points early in the morning with a topwater lure such as a buzzbait or a Spro Dawg 100 in Old Glory on Sunline FX2 Braid. After the morning topwater has diminished, you have some other techniques that seem to be working well on the same grass points. The grass points that have seemed to be producing better are the ones that are closer to the river channels. If the wind is blowing, you need to fish the wind-blown points with a Spro Superstar 1/2-oz. spinnerbait in white/chartreuse. If there is no wind, then back off a little and fish a little deeper off of the points with a Texas-rigged 7-inch Big Bite Baits Sugar Cane worm in easy-money color. I like to use a 5/16-oz. Tungsten and a 5/0 Gamakatsu off-set worm hook on this bait. This bait works really well because you can either bump it off the bottom or swim it through the grass. In the upcoming dog days of summer, look for the flipping bite to become a dependable way to catch fish. A Big Bite Fighting Frog is the best flipping bait on Seminole.”
