Lake Seminole Fishing Report October 2013
Seminole: Level: 0.5 feet below full pool. Temp. 82 degrees. Clarity: Sight stain.
Bass: Guide Matt Baty reports, “Lake Seminole is falling, and the current is slowing down. The fishing seems to be getting somewhat tougher. The shallow grass bite is really the way to go right now, so don’t be afraid to fish in 2 feet of water or less. Frogs are hard to beat, and you have two good choices: a swimming frog you can swim over the grass or a floating hollow-body frog. For a good swimming frog, use a Big Bite Baits 3.5-inch Top Toad in green pumpkin pearl. Use a Gamakatsu 5/0 EWG hook and 60-lb. Sunline FX2 Froggin and Flipping Braid. For a hollow-body frog, opt for a Spro Bronzeye Popper in natural green. Use the same line for this technique. Look for shallow grass flats with bream present in order to be in a good area. Another good way to catch them is to fish grasslines near the deepest part of the river channel. Use a topwater plug such as a Stanford Turbo Shad in buster bream. If grass is not your thing, there are still some good fish being caught out deep on ledges on the Hooch. You will definitely need good electronics with a chip such as Lowrance HDS Structure Scan and Navionics mapping cards. Look for humps, points and ledges on the main lake part of the Chattahoochee River, and fish crankbaits and Carolina rigs. As the weather cools, look for the bass to start schooling up for the winter, and the spinnerbait and Rat-L-Trap bite will start to pick up.”
