Lake Seminole Fishing Report – March 2019

GON Staff | February 26, 2019

Seminole: Level: Full. Temp: Low to mid 60s. Clarity: Water on the rivers is stained. The creek, back ponds, Fish Pond Drain, Spooner Fields and Saunders Slough are clear.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass are bedding on Lake Seminole, and they will be for the next two months. Sight fish from the middle of the morning to mid afternoon. There is a sweet spot in each bed that gets the bass extremely excited. Place the sun in your face, so your shadow doesn’t fall on the bed. Always wear a pair of polarized glassed. Use a grey lens for clear water, brown for stained water. Only use amber on cloudy days in very stained water as they add about 10 percent of light to your eyes and will be painful if you wear them on a sunny day. Line weight should be as light as possible or thin as possible if you use braid. Use tubes with internal weights, Texas-rigged lizards, an A.C. Spinner 1.5-3.0 in silver and black over the bed. Jigs in white or green pumpkin work well. Junebug paddletail or Speed Worms with a 1/32- to 1/8-oz. weight with a rattle in it fished like a spinnerbait is another good lure. The worm that paddles the best catches fish. Staging bass are being taken on Carolina rigs and ChatterBaits.”

Other: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The crappie are bedding. Minnows are a good bet. Catfish are being taken with cutbait. Chain pickerel are on spoons and spinnerbaits.”
