Lake Seminole Fishing Report – June 2010
Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 78 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Matt Baty reports, “The topwater bite has really picked up all over the lake. Any topped-out grass that can be found has the potential to produce nice fish. The grasslines with shad present are obviously much better. Once you find where the shad are spawning in the grass, then you can really catch some nice fish. A good topwater bait to catch them in the grass is a Spro Dawg 100 in old-glory color. I like to use braided line with this technique and a long rod such a 7-foot, 6-inch Falcon Lowrider flipping rod. The action to use just depends on what type of mood the fish are in. Sometimes they want you to walk the dog fast, and sometimes they want it with wider sweeps in a slower motion. Just experiment with the technique until you find which works best for that particular day. When the topwater bite is over, then you can work the same areas with several different techniques. One good technique is to fish a weightless Big Bite Jerk Minnow in pearl color. I use this bait with a 5/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook and 15-lb. Sunline Super Flourocarbon. Just throw the bait up in the grass, and work it through the holes and cuts in the grass letting it fall slowly. This technique can produce fish all day. You just have to slow down the hotter it gets.”
