LAKE SEMINOLE IS FULL, MAIN LAKE IS CLEARING, RIVERS ARE STAINED & LOW 70’S

This report is by Matt Baty.

Bass fishing is fair. The recent shad spawn on the lake is definitely making the fishing a little better, but with the water still fairly muddy, fishing is not as good as it should be. When looking for a shad spawn, look for topped out vegetation or fish breaking the surface. When you locate shad, there are several baits that will work. A 3/8 ounce Buddha Blade in ice color, a 3/8 ounce Buddha in Seine swim jig in crystal shad or a 3/8 ounce white Buddha Alarm buzz bait will work great. Buddha Bait Co. also offers a whole line of premium grade rods at an affordable price that are technique specific to fish each of these baits. Use a 4.25 inch white Big Bite Baits Cane Thumper as a trailer for each one of these baits. It’s also a good idea to have a good reel ready, such as a Lews Speed Spool, that will throw long distances for schooling fish. After the shad spawn, you can still search for bedding bass in clear, backwater areas. Once you find a bass on bed, a Big Bite Baits Warmouth is hard to beat. While searching for bedding fish use a white Spro popping frog around shallow grass and pads. As the weather continues to warm, look for the fish to start moving out on ledges and grass edges. Use our Lowrance electronics to scan for schools of post spawn bass feeding on shad.

LAKE SEMINOLE IS DOWN 1.04 FEET, MAIN LAKE IS CLEARING, RIVERS ARE STAINED & 70’S

Bass fishing is good. The bass are up early morning and the grass bite is good. Be sure bait fish and deep water access are close by for the better fish. Use top water baits and Zoom lizards around the grass in several of the creeks on the upper end of the lake. After lunch, use Carolina rigs and slow rolling spinnerbaits around the secondary points. The fish are moving out to brush piles in 8 to 12 feet where crank baits and Texas rigs were working well. The shallow bank cover in the shade early may be the best place to get a big fish and a bright Senko, buzz bait and trick worms will work. A few fish are still bedding in some of the creeks but mostly buck bass are left guarding the nest. Finding the grass with shad and deep water around will really improve your odds for bigger fish.
