Lake Seminole Fishing Report June 2011
Seminole: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temp: 78 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Good. Matt Baty reports, “Most fish on the lake are relating to main-lake grass points and grasslines. The grass has yet to top out but can be found using your electronics. A good place to start looking is from the firebreak down to Ship Island, which is the little island at the end of Sealy’s Flats. There are numerous points and dips in this grassline, and it is capable of holding tons of fish. Shallow cranking and Carolina-rigging are the two best techniques for catching fish in these areas. Use the crankbait for locating grass and fish, and then slow down with the Carolina-rig once you have located a school of fish. A really good crankbait for this type of fishing is a Spro Little John in nasty shad. This bait has tremendous action and really has a good feel when using a good fluorocarbon line such as 16-lb. Sunline FC Sniper. You want to crank it down until you feel the grass, and then slow it down and work it methodically through the grass. Sometimes you may have to rip it free from the grass to draw a reaction strike. The Carolina rig works better on points that have shad present. For the rig, use a 1 1/4-oz. bullet weight and a long leader. Use a 2/0 Gamakatsu off-set shank hook and a 6-inch Big Bite Baits finesse worm in green pumpkin. Fish it slowly through the grass, and make sure to use a good sensitive rod to feel for light bites.”
