Lake Seminole Fishing Report – February 2008
Seminole: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 49-50 degrees. Clarity: Heavy stain except in Spring Creek. Spring Creek is slightly stained.
Bass: Slow. The bass at Seminole are waiting on some warmer weather. The recent cold fronts and muddy runoff have made it difficult to catch a fish, said guide Mike Sloan. There are a few fish being caught on the spawning flats with a white/chartreuse spinnerbait or a firetiger Rat-L-Trap, but the fish are very inconsistent. The only reliable bite is flipping the grass mats, and that bite is also slow. “Flip the thick stuff,” Mike said. “The thicker the better.” A 4-inch crawfish in junebug on a 1-oz. or 1 1/2-oz. weight is the go-to bait right now. Mike said to target grass mats in at least 5 feet of water. There are some good mats and hyacinth on the Chattahoochee side, especially around the man-made island. The spawning fish should be just around the corner. “They’re looking to move up,” Mike said. “If that water temp gets up a little, that first wave of spawners will move in. I’m ready for that to happen.” It only takes a few days of warmer weather for the water temperatures to move into the low 60s, and when that happens the action should heat up, as well. When the fish move onto the flats, they can be caught with Rat-L-Traps or spinnerbaits.
