Lake Seminole Fishing Report – February 2009

GON Staff | January 27, 2009

Seminole: Level: Full pool. Temp: 53 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Good. Matt Baty reports: “Huge bass are beginning to stage all over the lake. A recent Media Bass tournament was won with 25 pounds. Fish were caught on a Carolina-rigged Big Bite Baits 6-inch Kriet Kreature. This bait is similar to a Zoom Brush Hog, but has legs and tentacles that have an awesome swimming action. Fish are on 7- to 10-foot ditches and depressions adjacent to spawning flats. To locate fish, use Rat-L-Traps or spinnerbaits to cover water. Once fish have been found, slow down and use a Carolina-rigged Big Bite Baits 6-inch Kriet Kreature or 10-inch Kriet Tail Worm. As the weather warms and the water temperature continues to climb, look for the fish to move farther up onto the spawning flats. When this occurs, use a weightless Big Bite Baits 6-inch Trick Stick in junebug or watermelon.

Crappie: Good. Matt reports: “The specks have moved back to deep water with the cold temperatures. Fish the channel bends on the lower Flint. Use a 1/16-oz. jig made by Big Bite Baits in lemon-meringue color. Use light fluorocarbon line and swim the jig extremely slow. I have found that the jig catches better quality crappie than minnows.”
