Lake Seminole Fishing Report September 2014
Seminole: Level: 0.6 feet below full pool. Temp. 88-90 degrees. Clarity: Clear.
Bass: Fair. Guide Matt Baty reports, “Bass fishing is best early in the mornings or late in the evenings with topwater baits. Buzzbaits and walking baits such as a Spro Dawg 100 work real well on topped-out hydrilla on the Flint River. Both techniques work best with 50-lb. Sunline FX2 braid. When the early morning bite is over, things get really tough. You can still manage to catch fish by either flipping or utilizing your electronics. There are always bass buried up in the hydrilla, and the grass is plentiful on the Flint side of the lake. When flipping, look for the deepest grass walls, and use a 1 1/4-oz. Fish Catchin Fool Tungsten, a Fish Catchin Fool Bobber Stopper, a 5/0 Gamakatsu Straight Shank Heavy Cover Flippin Hook and a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Fighting Frog in prime-rib color. You can also catch fish that are suspended in the river channel underneath balls of bait, but this pattern is hit or miss. You need good electronics such as Lowrance Touch 7, 9 or 12 with a good DownScan. When you see fish suspended underneath balls of bait, you can see what depth they are holding in and fish accordingly. A Lake Fork Flutter Spoon works real well on suspended fish, as does a crankbait such as a Spro Little John DD. Also, always have a reel that will cast a long way such as a Lews Speed Spool rigged up with a big topwater bait, so that you can cast at schooling fish that come up to chase bait.”
