Lake Seminole Fishing Report October 2011

GON Staff | September 28, 2011

Seminole: Level: 1.6 feet below full pool. Temp: 83 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Slow. Matt Baty reports, “The bass are just not biting on Seminole right now. Very few anglers have reported any good catches lately. There are a couple techniques that will still work even though the bite is tough. One technique is to fish a floating jerkbait on grasslines on the main part of the lake. The best grasslines are the ones that have shad, bream or needle fish present. I like to use a Spro McStick 110 in old glory color, but I do a couple of things to the bait to trick it out a bit. The bait suspends as it is coming out of the package, but if you change the hooks and split rings to a smaller size, it will float slowly back to the surface when fished. I change the hooks to Gamakatsu No. 6 EWG treble hooks and the split rings to a smaller and thinner size to give the jerkbait less weight. This makes it more appealing to late-summer/early fall bass on Seminole. Use 14-lb. Sunline FC Sniper Flourocarbon with the McStick in order to get the best action out of the bait. Another good pattern that is working this year is to flip hydrilla lines in 10 to 15 feet of water. When flipping, use 22-lb. Sunline Shooter Flourocarbon, a 1 1/2-oz. tungsten sinker, a Gamakatsu Heavy Cover Flipping Hook in 3/0, and a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Fighting Frog in Vegas flash.”
