LAKE SEMINOLE IS DOWN .95 FEET, CLEAR & 90’S

Bass fishing is fair and the Carolina rig and main lake ledges are best. The fish have moved out to the river channel ledges or to deep docks. Crank baits are slow lake wide. Almost all the fish are taking plastics but try a white buzz bait any time of the day. Jigs are also fair up the rivers in all brown. Plastic or pork trailer will work and match the trailers to the bait. Soft plastics in the green pumpkin, green shad or red bug are working mid day till dark. A grass rat on the edges has been working when the sun is straight up. Work the bait just like a Zara Spook and walk the baits on the edges with an extra rattle in the bait.
