Lake Seminole Fishing Report – November 2009
Seminole: Level: Full pool. Temp: 70 degrees. Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Good. Matt Baty reports, “The shad are starting find their way into shallow water on flats and backwater pockets off of the main river. The shallow cranking bite is starting to pick up. Fish a Spro Little John in the new nasty shad color over grass flats on the main lake. Ripping the bait through the grass draws more strikes. Another good pattern for this time of year is to flip shallow grass and hyacinths in the backwaters of both rivers. A Big Bite Baits, 4-inch, Yo Momma in black/blue works extremely well when shallow flipping. Use a 1-oz. Tru-Tungsten lead pegged with a 5/0 straight-shank Gamakatsu hook. Make sure to use a heavy-action flipping rod to pull the bass out of the thick cover, such as a Falcon 7-foot, 6-inch Lowrider Heavy Action flipping stick. As water temperatures continue to fall and the grass continues to die, expect the Rat-L-Trap bite to pick up all over the lake.”
Crappie: Fair. Matt said, “Crappie are still being caught fairly shallow on the lake. Fish grasslines in 7 to 10 feet of water up above Wingate’s Lunker Lodge. Fish a Big Bite Baits 1.75-inch Slab-Tube in lemon meringue color. Fish the Slab-Tube on a Big Bite Bad Boy 1/16-oz. jig head in white. Use a spinning reel and a good, limber but sensitive rod such as a Falcon 6-foot, 6-inch Bucoo Spinning Rod. Fish the tube parallel to the grass and work it slow.”
