Lake Seminole Fishing Report – October 2010
Seminole: Level: 0.9 feet below full pool. Temp: 85 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Slow. Matt Baty reports, “The two best techniques I have found to work lately are flipping and fishing a jerkbait. Flipping main-lake grassbeds in 7 to 10 feet of water is a good way to pick up some bites. If the bite is extremely tough, use a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Yo Momma in Hematoma. This bait does not have a lot of leg-kicking action, but glides through the water in a subtle motion which sometimes draws more strikes when the fish are non-aggressive. The other bait to use when the flipping bite is really on is a 4-inch Big Bite Fighting Frog. This bait has tremendous action and an awesome hook-up ratio. Rig both of these baits with a 1- to 1 1/2-oz. tungsten weight and a 5/0 Gamaktsu Superline hook. The other technique is one that I really don’t like to share. Fish points on main-lake grassbeds with a Spro McStick jerkbait. Color depends on weather conditions. Sunny skies call for chrome shad, and clouds call for the blue bandit. You will get more bites if you use a spinning reel and 8-lb. Sunline FC Sniper flourocarbon. If the weather cools off, the grass will start dying, and the shallow-cranking and rattle-bait bite will pick up.”
