Lake Seminole Fishing Report – Jan. 4, 2024

The bass fishing on Lake Seminole has been extremely productive this winter! The water temperatures have fallen down to the mid 50s and the Flint and Chattahoochee River arms of the lake have good stain. Spring Creek remains clear.

 We have been catching bass on a variety of lures from vibrating jigs, jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits. 

The Strike King Thunder Cricket Vibrating Jig has been very productive this winter, and I expect it to continue to produce all the way into spring. This bait has incredible action to it and a built-in trailer keeper that works. Jerkbaits have worked well this winter, also. The 6th Sense Provoke jerkbait in the 106 and 106DD series in any shad color has worked well. The 6th Sense Provoke jerkbait is one of my favorite jerkbaits because its cast-ability and action. The key is working it at a fast, erratic pace.

As we enter into February, the bass will be in full prespawn mode. It is one of the best months of the year to catch the biggest bass Lake Seminole has to offer because the bass will be schooling up by size.

The crappie fishing on Lake Seminole has also been very good this winter. We are catching them in 18 to 25 feet of water around wood. The crappie will begin to move to their spawning areas as we close out February and can be caught on minnows and jigs.
