Lake Seminole Fishing Report September 2012

GON Staff | August 29, 2012

Seminole: Level: 0.8 feet below full pool. Temp: 90 degrees. Clarity: Clear.

Bass: Fair, according to tournament pro Matt Baty. “The dog days of summer are here and the bass can really hit or miss. If you start early in the right location you really need to be throwing a buzzbait or a topwater prop bait such as a Stanford Turbo Shad. Look for grassbeds that are near ditches with at least 10 feet of water right next to the grasslines. If there are holes in the grass, you need to be throwing a buzzing or gurgling frog. A Big Bite Baits Top Toad is a good bait to use and catches really big bass on Seminole. Big Bite will soon have the buzzing Warmouth out, and it is going to be an absolute hammer on Seminole. When throwing the Top Toad in the grass, you need heavy 60-lb. Sunline FX2 braid and a 5/0 Gamakatsu EWG hook. This is the best hook to rig this bait b/c it fits it perfectly. After the sun comes up, get out your flipping sticks and flip, flip, flip. You may have to go 1000 yards down a grassline before you get a bite, but the fish seem to have been grouped up in the grass, so when you get a bite, you most likely will get another.”
