Lake Seminole Fishing Report August 2014

GON Staff | July 31, 2014

Seminole: Level: 0.7 feet below full pool. Temp: Upper 80s. Clarity: Clearing.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Late evening and early morning seem to be the best for bass right now. A father and son went fishing the other evening and got five bass each. They ranged in size from 2 to 6 pounds. They were using a 3/8-oz. white spinnerbait with double willow blades and a watermelon-seed Skinny Dipper worm with a 1/4-oz. weight. With the full moon, night fishing will be better. Black buzzbaits, Jitterbugs and a black-and-yellow Devil Horse should do the trick. I will also be fishing black or purple worms at night. I prefer the 10 1/2-inch or larger Texas-rigged worms with a worm rattle inserted in the body between the head of the worm and the hook point. The work on Spring Creek Park ramp is behind schedule and may not be complete until August. Trails End, Cummings, Cypress Pond, Sealy’s and Seminole State Park are open. The grass is still in good shape. It is at least a month behind in growth, so it is easier to fish. Mayfly hatches continue, and this makes for some very good fly-rod fishing. I saw a fly-rod fisherman with three bass. The largest was just over 5 pounds.”

Panfish: “We caught a good mess of redbreasts, crappie and warmouth on a green-and-black H&H Cajun Spin. The biggest warmouth was 1-lb., 1-oz.,” Aaron said. “Kevin Mooris had a good catch of speckled perch. He caught them on minnows fishing 10 feet down in 22 feet of water. They were 1 to 2 pounds each.”
