Lake Seminole Fishing Report – May 2019

GON Staff | April 30, 2019

Seminole: Level: Full. Temp: Upper 60s to mid 70s. Clarity: Slightly stained.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass are in postspawn mode on most of the lake with the sandbar bass on the main lake just finishing bedding as they are the last bass to bed on the lake. Smoking purple is a good color of worm to throw on the main lake. Fish black buzzbaits in the early morning and white spinnerbaits in the mid morning. A Devil’s Horse in Tennessee shad in the early morning is a good bait. As for flipping, a Zoom Brush Hog in junebug or green pumpkin-blue flake will work. I feel that Slug-Gos in white/green back will imitate the needle fish running the edges of the grassline. The frog or Horny Toad (water melon red flake) and rat bite will come on strong in the near future. Jackfish and bass will be taken with spoons like the Little Cleo and the Johnson spoon. You should take extra care to sharpen the hooks on a spoon prior to fishing it. They are never sharp enough out of the package. When fishing grasslines, fish into the wind or current, whichever is stronger. When you hook a fish, kick a marker over to mark the spot. Upon landing the fish, you will know where to start back fishing. You continue dropping markers with each fish. You will find that about 100 to 200 feet of that grassline holds 90% of the fish.”

Misc.: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Fishing is in full swing. Shellcracker are on the bed with redbreast and bluegill soon to follow. Crappie are in 4 to 10 feet of water on minnows.”
