Lake Seminole Fishing Report October 2012

GON Staff | September 26, 2012

Seminole: Level: 1.1 feet below full pool. Temp: 82 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Matt Baty reports, “Early in the mornings, look for shad and bream present on main-lake grasslines. Throw a white Spro Super Star spinnerbait and a white buzzbait in these areas. This year, the lake is covered with hydrilla growing everywhere. The fish can be really hard to find, especially during the day after the morning bite. The best technique is flipping. Just choose a grassline, and go down it flipping. The best setup for flipping is a 7 1/2- to 8-foot rod with 60-lb. Sunline FX2 braid, a 1 1/2-oz. tungsten and a 5/0 Gamakatsu Heavy Cover Flippin’ Hook. The bait of choice easy, a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Fighting Frog in green pumpkin or tilapia. This setup allows you to fish fast and cover a lot of water. When you get a bite, there is a good chance there are some more fish in the area, so slow down, and fish the area thoroughly. This pattern will hold up all the way through November, until the grass starts dying back. Then it will be time to start throwing shallow-running and lipless crankbaits.”
