Lake Seminole Fishing Report January 2016

GON Staff | December 22, 2015

Seminole: Level: 0.1 feet below full pool. Temp: Mid 60s. Clarity: Spring Creek and the main lake are clearing up, but the Chattahoochee and Flint are stained.

Bass: Slow. Guide Aaron Crews reports, “If the weather turns colder, I feel that the metal baits, such as Little George, Silver Buddy and jigging spoons, will turn on. I believe that Carolina rigs and the old jig ’n pigs will start to work better. I prefer the brown and orange combo and the black and blue combo. There are a lot of coots on the lake, so when running a boat, care should be taken. If you hit a coot at high speed, you could be seriously hurt.”

Crappie/Bream: Aaron reports, “The crappie seem to be on minnows at varying depths with temperate and barometric pressure changes. At Trails End, Ron Harris and Richard Helms had an exceptional catch of 40 crappie from 1 1/2- to 2 1/2-lb. fish in 12 feet of water on the edge of the Chattahoochee River channel. Oscar Baily has been catching crappie in 20 to 27 feet of water on the main lake. The bream seem to be in 12 to 15 feet of water on worms.”
