Lake Seminole Fishing Report – August 2023

Bass: Guide Paul Tyre reports, “The bass fishing on Lake Seminole has been very good through the months of June and July! The August forecast looks promising. If planning a trip to Lake Seminole in August, be sure to have some topwater lures, like buzzbaits, walking baits and hollow-belly frogs in your tackle box. Walking baits like a Heddon Zara Spook is an excellent choice for finding productive grasslines on the lake. One of my favorites is a Heddon Super Spook in a bone color. It has very sharp hooks and a sound that gets the attention of the big bass. For line, I prefer 30-lb. Cortland Master Braid. It has great cast-ability and is strong enough to get the big bass out of the grass. A high-speed reel at 7.3:1 is a must, and my go-to rod for this technique is a Temple Fork Outfitters 7-4 MH Tactical Bass series. It has moderate action and a soft tip but a backbone to get a great hook set. The hollow-belly frog will continue to produce in August. My go-to is the Spro Bronzeye Poppin’ Frog. It has a double heavyweight Gamakatsu hook that is extremely sharp and heavy enough to get the big bass out of the grass. I like to fish the frog over the grass and through holes in the grass. Rod, line and reel choices are very important with this technique. A high-speed reel is a must, at least 8.3:1, and a heavy braided line. I prefer 65-lb. Cortland Master Braid on a 7-3 XH Temple Fork Outfitters Tactical Bass Rod. This rod has a fast tip and has the backbone to get the biggest bass out of the grass. The bream have been bedding on Lake Seminole through the month of July and will continue through August.”
