Lake Seminole Fishing Report November 2015

GON Staff | October 29, 2015

Seminole: Level: 0.9 feet below full pool. Temp: 72 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Slow. Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “Bites are few and far between right now. Frogging and flipping in thick pads is your best chance at getting any bites. Lily pads on the Chattahoochee River seem to be where the best action has been. Fish the edges of the lily pads with a Spro Bronzeye 65 frog in rainforest black. Setup is crucial for froggin in these thick pads. Use 60-lb. Sunline FX2 braid, a Tournament Pro Lews Speed Spool and a Duckett 7-6 extra-heavy rod. This will increase your chances of getting fish out of the thick pads. You can also use this same setup for flipping. Have your flipping rod rigged up with a 1-oz. tungsten and a 5-inch Big Bite Baits Fighting Frog in hematoma with a big Gamakatsu Flipping Hook for the bass that strike at the frog and miss it. As the weather cools down, look for there to be a drop-shot bite in Spring Creek where you can use Lowrance Down Scan technology to find schools of bait and fish in deep water.” Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The bass on the main lake are slow, which means buzzbaits early and flipping for the rest of the day. Up the Flint and Chattahoochee, Daniel Adams reports good catches of 2- to 3-lb. bass on shad-pattern crankbaits on the outside bends of the river. The crankbait will need to run 10 to 15 feet deep.”

Crappie: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “The crappie are in 15 to 18 feet of water, according to Mike at Westside Bait and Tackle. They are bitting minnows. Liz at Trails End said the shellcracker and panfish, as well as catfish, are biting worms and crickets in 8 to 12 feet of water on the edges of grasslines.”
