Lake Seminole Fishing Report June 2017

GON Staff | June 1, 2017

Seminole: Level: Near full pool. Temp: 80 degrees. Clarity: Stained.

Bass: Good. Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “The bass are biting good. The majority of the fish are postspawners that are feeding up on bream and shad on outside grass edges all over the lake. Topwater frogs and buzzbaits work good in the early mornings. A buzzing frog, such as a Big Bite Baits Buzzing Warmouth, swimmed over the grass works good, as does a Buddha Baits Snooze Alarm buzzbait in 3/8-oz. Use both on a Lews Tournament Speed Spool with a high-speed 8:3:1 gear ratio and a 7-3, 3/4 heavy-action Buddha Stick with 50-lb. Sunline braid. Use white colors for shad in the morning and bream colors in the afternoon. There is also some submerged grassbeds on down the lake near the dam that are good for throwing a bladed jig or a shallow-running crankbait. Look for these areas on your Lowrance HDS units and structure-scan technology. Most of these lures and fishing equipment can be found at Westside Bait & Tackle on Spring Creek Road in Bainbridge.” Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Fish topwater with a Devil’s Horse in silver shiner and Tennessee shad and Tiny Torpedoes in baby bass. Try the nighttime topwater bite with Musky Jitterbugs in red head/white body and also all black. Try Carolina rigs and speed worms around bream beds. You will find the bigger fish stacked up in deeper water on Carolina rigs. The frog bite over grassbeds, as well as flipping grassbeds, should be great for the next two months.”

Various: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bream are bedding and are biting on crickets. Shellcracker are postspawn on worms, according to Kay at Seminole Country Market. The catfish are on cut bait and gizzards. Crappie are on the edges of deep grasslines on minnows.”
