Lake Seminole Fishing Report – October 2018

GON Staff | September 26, 2018

Seminole: Level: 0.7 feet low. Temp: Low to mid 80s. Clarity: Clear to slightly stained.

Bass: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Bass fishing has been slow but should pick up with the cooler weather of fall. The shad will school up with the decreasing temperatures. This means walking baits like the Zara Spook, and topwater baits, like Baby Torpedos in bass (bass feed on smaller bass at this time of year), Iovino Splash-its and Devil’s Horses will work. Rat-L-Traps in bass and blue/silver and shad-colored crankbaits, like Shad Raps, on 12-lb. mono will start working in Spring Creek in the trees that rise to the surface at an angle along the old creek channel. Vertical fishing with Hopkins spoons and yo-yoing Little Georges on the outer edges of the creek channel will start paying off to bass fishermen in October.”

Misc: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Panfish are in 6 to 7 feet of water on worms. The catfish bite is good. Crappie are in 12 to 18 feet of water on minnows. White bass are schooling in some places on the Flint. Small crankbaits like the SR05 Shad Rap and Rooster Tails will work on them. The grass is in good condition for duck season. November should bring a good migration of ducks to Seminole.”
