Lake Seminole Fishing Report May 2018

GON Staff | April 27, 2018

Seminole: Level: 0.2 feet low. Temp: 68 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The topwater bite is on white frogs, white buzzbaits and Senkos. In May, the nighttime bite should start on Jitter Bugs, Milk Run Lures Okeechobee Special and a Devils Horse in Tennessee shad or silver shiner. I feel that the A.C. Shiner in shad pattern will take off next month. Also, flip a Zoom Brush Hog in black and blue. Don’t flip with the sun at your back as you will cast a shadow. Fish into the current or wind, whichever is greater. When you hook up on a fish, drop a marker buoy. You will find 90 percent of the fish are in 10 percent of the lake doing the same thing.”

Various Species: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Shellcracker, bluegill and redbreast should start bedding soon. The crappie are in about 20 of water and biting on white or chartreuse jigs tipped with minnows. According to Oscar Bailey, he is catching some bass, as well, with this technique. They are in the 2- to 5-lb. range on 6-lb. test. Stripers and hybrids should be in the same depth of water on 1/2-oz. Road Runner jigs in white or chartreuse.”
