Lake Seminole Fishing Report – December 2007

GON Staff | November 27, 2007

Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 60s. Clarity: Crystal clear in Spring Creek. Slight stain up the rivers.

Bass: Excellent. “There’s tons of shad in the grass. It’s as good as I’ve ever seen it for fall fishing here,” said guide Mike Sloan. Mike has been doing well throwing a 1/2-oz., red Rat-L-Trap on the flats in 7 to 8 feet of water, but the best bite right now is on the main-lake grass points. “It’s awful early for that bite, but it’s on,” Mike said. “That’s about the only thing anybody’s doing right now.” Anglers are bringing in lots of fish and big fish with small crankbaits fished parallel to the grass lines. Mike said any mid-depth crankbait that gets down 4 to 6 feet will work. Lucky Craft’s citrus shad is the hot color right now.

Crappie: The speckled perch are late moving into the grass line, but people are still catching good numbers of keeper-sized fish on the channel ledges in 18 to 20 feet of water. Try spider-rigging with minnows or sitting on some structure and drop shotting a two- or three-hook crappie rig with minnows.
