Lake Seminole Fishing Report December 2015

GON Staff | November 25, 2015

Seminole: Level: 0.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 68 degrees. Clarity: Muddy.

Bass: Still tough. Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “The fish have still not really schooled up like they normally do this time of year. The grass is still thick enough that flipping is still your best bet, but with the high, stained water, a spinnerbait has been a good choice on outside grasslines. The outside edges of the grass are underwater now, so use your Lowrance electronics to locate the edge. Once you locate the edge, a spinnerbait is hard to beat for locating fish. Once you locate fish, you can then flip a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Fighting Frog in hematoma. Rig this with 60-lb. Sunline braid, a 1 1/4-oz. tungsten, a bobber stopper and a 5/0 Gamakatsu Super Heavy Cover Flippin’ Hook tied with a snell knot. Use a heavy-action rod and a high-speed reel, such as a Lews Speed Spool LFS with an 8:3:1 gear ratio.” Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass up the river are on crankbaits on the outside bends. The Flint River shoal bass are in the 10- to 12-foot range and being caught on crankbaits. Shad patterns seem to work best with cold, winter weather. It may become necessary to change over to metal baits like a Little George, Silver Buddy, Heddon Sonic or a jigging spoon. I would use these on the old creek channel and river channels.”

Crappie/Bream: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The crappie move up and down with temperature. Right now they are in 6 to 10 feet of water and being caught on minnows. The larger bream are biting on wigglers in 8 to 10 feet of water, according to Liz at Trails End.”
