Lake Seminole Fishing Report February 2013
Seminole: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temp: 63 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “The bass are steady on the move right now. With the warm weather, the bass are either on the beds or very near their spawning grounds. The best way to find and catch right now is to tie on a shallow-running crankbait such as a Stanford Old School SSR in the summer color or a Spro Little John in clear-chartreuse. Use 20-lb. Sunline FC Sniper fluorocarbon with these baits to keep them up shallow. These are good search baits to use on flats near sand on the main lake. While fishing these areas, keep your eyes open for bedding bass or sandbars. This type of fishing is extremely helpful with a set of dual Power Poles from JL Marine. If you find bass on bed, the best bait for catching bedding fish is a Big Bite Baits Warmouth in chartreuse-bluegill color. This bait must be rigged correctly. This bait was specifically designed to be rigged on the side with a 5/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook. You also need to use a 3/8-oz. Fish Catchin Fool tungsten weight along with a Fish Catchin Fool bobber stopper. This is the best weight/bobber stopper combination on the market right now. If you find sandbars in these areas, you can back off and fish these with a Texas-rigged or a Carolina-rigged 8-inch Big Bite Baits finesse worm in green pumpkin. The Rat-L-Trap bite on the grass flats will work also, but can be hit or miss with the warm water temperatures.”
