Lake Seminole Fishing Report – November 2019

GON Staff | October 26, 2019

Seminole: Level: 0.9 feet below full. Temp: Upper 70s. Clarity: Some stain.

Bass: Guide Paul Tyre reports, “The bass are feeding on shad and bream. We are expecting November to be excellent for bass fishing. If you are planning a trip to Lake Seminole, don’t leave home with out your buzzbaits and frogs—the topwater should be exceptional in November.” Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Flint River shoal bass above Bainbridge can be taken on small shad-patterned crankbaits and small buzzbaits early and late. Throw Shad Raps and Rat-L-Traps on schooling shad. Swimbaits will catch the larger bass. Fish deeper-diving baits on large schools in 15 to 18 feet of water. As the shad go to the bottom depths, use a Little George and Hopkins jigging spoon. If you are lucky enough to come across striper or hybrids schooling on shad, use a 3/4-oz. blue/chrome Rat-L-Trap. The frog bite is still there, as well as a Zara Spook bite on grass with shad present.”

Linesides: Guide Paul Tyre reports, “The stripers and hybrids have been schooling on the main lake and are being caught on Alabama rigs and crankbaits. As we go into November, striper and hybrid fishing will continue to get even better.”

Other Species: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Crappie are on minnows in 18 to 22 feet of water. Catfish are in the 20- to 25-foot range on a verity of baits, including minnows, stink bait and cut bait. Panfish are in 10 to 15 feet of water on worms. White bass are schooling on baitfish. The grass is in good shape for duck season. Last season was lackluster at best due to Hurricane Michael ripping up the grass.”
