Lake Seminole Fishing Report January 2018

GON Staff | January 5, 2018

Seminole: Level: 0.7 feet low Temp: Main lake is 54 degrees. Water temperatures are going to be inconsistent due to rains and dam releases up the Flint and the Chattahoochee rivers. Clarity: The water color will change overnight with these releases. Right now the lake is clear on the rivers and gin clear in Spring Creek and Fish Pond Drain.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Fish white spinnerbaits with twin willowleaf blades in the rivers and black spinnerbaits with small willowleaf blades in gin-clear waters. Flipping and pitching black-and-blue worms or craws and throwing swimbaits and crankbaits are working for bass. On colder days, the pattern will change to drop shotting timber near the channels. Also fish metal baits, like the Heddon Sonar, Silver Buddy or Little George in these areas. On the warm-up periods, fish a Johnson Silver Minnow Spoon with a chartreuse skirt or a plastic pork chunk.”

Other: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The crappie are in 10 to 15 feet of water on minnows. They will shift over to jigs as winter arrives. Catfish are being caught on bush hooks with strips of mullet.”
