Lake Seminole Fishing Report October 2009
Seminole: Level: 0.4 feet below full pool. Temp: 80 degrees. Clarity: Flint River is stained; Spring Creek is clear; Hooch is muddy.
Bass: Fair. Matt Baty reports, “With the changing conditions such as the varying water temperature, water levels, and water clarity, the fishing has been somewhat tough. The bass are in the summer/fall transition phase and can be caught on many different techniques. Spinnerbaits and shallow-running crankbaits such as a Spro Little John in Spooky Shad are a good choice for the main-lake grass flats. Another good pattern is flipping grass mats in the Spring Creek area. Use a Big Bite Baits 4-inch Fighting Frog in tilapia color. Rig it on a 1-oz. tungsten lead, 4/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook, and use a good flipping rod such as a 7-foot, 6-inch Falcon Expert for pulling the bass out of the deep mats. When the cooler weather settles in, expect the grass to start dying off on the flats, which will ignite the Rat-L-Trap and shallow-crankbait bite.
