Lake Seminole Fishing Report – November 2022
Seminole: Level: 1 foot below 77.5.
Bass: Guide Paul Tyre, of Lake Seminole Fishing Adventures, reports, “If coming to Lake Seminole in November, the bass will continue to be in their fall feed, feeding on shad. Crankbaits and spinnerbaits are very productive when the bass start chasing shad in the fall. One of my favorite crankbaits is a 1/2-oz. Strike King Red Eye Shad in any shad color, fished over the grass flats on the main lake.” Guide Aaron Crews reports, “With the cooler weather, fish will start their fall feed. The bass will follow baitfish. Seminole being a grass lake will always have a flipping or punch bite. Black and blue is probably the No. 1 color combo, followed by green pumpkin or orange and black for these techniques. Bass will bite on buzzbaits (white), crankbaits ( shad), topwater (Zara Spooks, Don Ivano Splash It, prop baits). Fluke-type baits imitate baitfish well this time of year. Spinnerbaits such as the Nichols with twin willowleaf white skirt or the crystal color are a go-to for bass.”
Multiple Species: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Crappie are in 12 to 16 feet of water on minnows. Some shellcracker and other panfish are being caught on worms. Catfish are on worms and cutbaits in 10 to 18 feet of water.”
Linesides: Capt. Paul Tyre reports, “The striper and hybrid fishing will remain very good in November. When fishing for hybrid and stripers, the correct rod paired with a 6.2:1 reel is critical. For the reel, I prefer the Lews LFS series. It has an awesome drag and can hold up to the demands of these hard-fighting fish. For the rod, I prefer a Temple Fork Outfitter’s Rod in the Professional Series. TFO’s 7-6 heavy-action rod with its fast tip and moderate action, paired with an Alabama rig, is my go-to for battling these tough-fighting pelagics. On the business end of the A-rig, you can’t beat the Bass Assassin 4- or 5-inch Sea Shad rigged on a Bass Assassin jig head that features a needle-sharp Mustad wide-gap hook.”
