Lake Seminole Fishing Report – May 2010
Seminole: Level: 0.7 feet below full pool. Temp: 76 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Good. Matt Baty reports, “The bass are nearing the end of the spawn, and most fish are on their way back out to their postspawn areas. Some fish can still be caught near sand, but as the water continues to warm they will head for deeper water. Fish areas near sand with grass present, whether it is milfoil or hydrilla. Spring Creek is your best bet when looking for grass because the edges of the sandbars will always have some type of vegetation near them. The best way to catch fish once you find these areas is on a Spro McStick jerkbait in blue bandit. You can either fish the bait on a baitcaster or spinning outfit, but I prefer a spinning outfit because you can use lighter line which allows the bait to run a little deeper. Work the jerkbait on these grasslines with a fast jerking method to try and draw a reaction strike from these lethargic postspawners. If the jerkbait bite slows down, then you can work these same areas with a Carolina rig and a long leader. On the C-rig, make sure to use fluorocarbon line with a mono leader. A heavy 3/4- or 1-oz. bullet weight works best for this technique. Keep it simple, and go with a 6-inch Big Bite Baits finesse worm in green pumpkin on a 3/0 Gamakatsu offset shank hook. I like the BioBait formula because fish will bite and not let go.”
