Seminole: Level: Full pool. Temp: 73 degrees Clarity: Stained.
Bass: Tournament angler Matt Baty reports, “The recent warming trend and mud has confused the bass on the main lake a bit, and the bite has somewhat slowed down. With that said, this is Lake Seminole, and it can be great on any given day. The spawn is taking place with several bass still staging getting ready to spawn. Fish can be found on or near sandy areas on the main lake and in backwaters on the rivers. Use your Lowrance DownScan to locate the grass edges to start searching. A couple of good search baits include a Jenko Rip Knocker 75 in citrus shad rigged with 16-lb. Sunline FC Sniper and a 1/2-oz. Buddha Bait Swagger Jig in Houdini with a 4-inch Big Bite Baits Cane Thumper in green pumpkin. A really good combo is a 7-3 medium/heavy fast action Buddha Stick with a 7:5:1 Lews Custom Pro Speed Spool. Once you find some good sand, then slow down with a Texas-rigged Big Bite Kriet Tail Lizard in confusion.”
Multiple Species: Guide Aaron Crews reports, “Fishing is great right now. The bass are bitting exceptionally well on Carolina rigs on prespawn fish. Tubes, Senkos and lizards are working on bedding fish. Fish white spinnerbaits, junebug Zoom Speed worms, orange or blue Rat-L-Traps and gold/black back Rattlin Rogues on areas adjacent to spawning beds. Catfish are hitting cutbait using noodle rigs or bush hooks. The panfish are in 2 to 8 feet of water. Crappie are in 8 to 15 feet of water on minnows.”
