Lake Seminole Fishing Report – July 2007
Seminole: Level: 1.5 feet low. Temp: 87-88 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Brian Key said the fishing is good right now. “The Sunday tournament (June 25) had one 9-lb. fish and two 8-lb. fish with several bags over 20 pounds.” Brian said to start the morning near grass lines and points with topwater baits. Tiny Torpedos were his suggestion. If the topwater bite is slow, he quickly switches to a Carolina-rigged, green-pumpkin Zoom worm with a 1 1/4-oz. homemade pencil-shaped weight. The thinner weight cuts through the thick grass better than store-bought weights. He said to fish the scattered grass close to drop-offs in 10 to 15 feet of water. When it gets hot, Brian switches to a 6-inch Texas-rigged Zoom worm in green pumpkin or junebug with a 3/16-oz. weight. Brian said to go to the timber in 20 feet of water, and fish every stump. The fish are suspended next to the stumps. In the evening, go back to the grasslines with the morning topwater pattern. Brian said most of the bass from the weekend tournaments were coming from near the creek and river.
Hybrids: Good. Brian said the hybrids are schooling in the evening, and you can throw almost anything in the schools and catch them. He suggested a Rat-L-Trap.
