Lake Seminole Fishing Report November 2013
Seminole: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temperature: 72 degrees. Clarity: Light stain.
Bass: Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “Slow. There has been entirely too much pressure on the lake. There have been at least three tournaments in the past three weeks with 75-100 boats. The fish have simply been beat too much. The recent cold front has not helped out much either. However, we are talking about Lake Seminole, and giant bags are possible each and every day. There are some ways of still catching good numbers of bass, also. With the grass dying back, you can fish a lipless crankbait, such as a Spro Aruku Shad 75 in old glory. The grass is still thick, however, so you need to use heavy line and a somewhat stiff rod. Using 20-lb. Sunline FC Sniper Fluorocarbon is hard to beat. Look for points of grass on the main lake, and fish around these. Flats with submerged grass are also good, too. The East Bank Campground Area has been holding some good fish. Use your Lowrance Structure Scan units to find the best areas on the flats that has the best submerged grassbeds. Fish these areas with the Aruku Shad and a Big Bite Baits 6-inch Jerk Minnow in watermelon seed. You can also flip to catch some big ones. Spring Creek has been really hit hard with flipping, and the bite is slow over there, but the areas out in front of Wingate’s are still pretty good for flipping. When flipping, use a new 1 1/4-oz. tungsten made by Fish Catchin’ Fool, a FCF bobber stopper, a 5/0 Superline Gamakatsu Hook and a new Real Deal Craw from Big Bite Baits. You will get more bites with 25-lb. fluorocarbon, but I always just use braid.”
