Lake Seminole Fishing Report – March 2009

GON Staff | February 24, 2009

Seminole: Level: 1.16 feet below full pool. Temp: High 50s to low 60s. Clarity: Stained.

Very good. “This time of year is my favorite because you can catch them pretty much any way you want to — prespawn, post-spawn or spawning,” said Mike Sloan. “They’ll be in full-blown spawn on the full moon in March.” Recent tournaments have been won bed fishing. Mike said to target bedding fish on the sandbars and the benches leading up to the sandbars with a white Paca Craw, a Senko or a lizard. Stick with a light color you can see. A shallow-running crankbait will also catch fish bedded on the sanbars. If you want to catch some prespawn fish, try ripping a Rat-L-Trap through the grass. Red and firetiger have been good colors for this bite.

Very good. Mike said boats are bringing in some monster limits of speckled perch from the sandbars in Spring Creek. Fish heavier than 2 pounds are spawning and folks are catching them sight fishing with jigs and minnows. In the shallow water, Mike said cloud cover is important.

Good. Guys chasing catfish have been doing really well in the river channels and on the flats adjacent to river channels,” said Mike. Live shiners and bream have been producing blues, channels and big flatheads.
