Lake Seminole Fishing Report February 2017

GON Staff | February 1, 2017

Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet above full pool. Temp: Low to upper 60s. Clarity: The rivers are stained.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass fishing on Lake Seminole in February is in a prespawn mode for bass. They will go on bed on the new and full moons this month. The buck bass are fanning beds, and the big females are beginning to cruise the shallows. I believe the lizards and tubes will work on the bedding fish once they lock down. The rivers are 59 degrees with the backwaters 64 degrees, and some of the bedding areas are approaching 70 degrees.”

Crappie, Bream & Other: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “According to Oscar Bail, the crappie have moved shallow and can be taken on minnows and jigs. The jackfish (chain pickeral), catfish and bowfin (mudfish) are all shallow, also. For jackfish, a white 3/8-oz. spinnerbait or a Little Cleo in 1/4-oz. with a white trailer will work. Keep a club handy for the mudfish. At Trails End, Liz says they are catching some panfish in 8 to 10 feet of water on crickets and worms.”
