LAKE SEMINOLE IS DOWN .47 FEET, CLEAR & MID TO MID 70’S BY MATT BATY
Bass fishing is fair. Lake Seminole bass fishing is starting to pick up just a little. There are millions of small shad all over the lake and the bass are feeding on them. There is also an abundant amount of 8 to 10 inch bass all over the lake. You can literally catch 100 small bass a day on the lake. For the larger bass, you actually have to just cull through the little ones until you get a big bite. The key is to use small baits that match the size of the shad. Baits such as a 4" Big Bite Baits Jerk Minnow in white on a Lew's Spinning Reel with small diameter Sunline Braid is a great combination. Small Buzz baits and spinnerbaits work well also. A Spro Baby Fat John in nasty Shad is great to crank in the shallow grass. Flipping is also good too. When flipping, use a 1 ounce Fish Catchin Fool Tungsten weight and a 4" White Big Bite Fighting Frog. The stripers and hybrids are also schooling and can be found on the main lake humps using your Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan units.
