The Bass fishing has been very good in January and is continuing into February as the water temperature has moved from the low to mid 50’s to the low 60’s.  Bass that have been schooling in their wintering areas are now starting to move into the pre-spawn phase.  The Flint and Chattahoochee River arms of the lake have a moderate stain due to recent rains, while Spring Creek remains clear.

A variety of lures are productive: lipless crank baits, jerk baits, chatterbaits, and even plastic worms, fished along the grass lines.

The Crappie fishing on Lake Seminole has been excellent to start the new year also!  We have been catching some BIG Crappie! The Crappie have been coming out of 20 feet of water. Jigs and minnows have been equally productive.

The big Blue Catfish bite has been equally productive on live and cut bait.

Fishing will continue to be excellent as we move into February, which is the best month to catch the biggest Bass and Crappie that swim in Lake Seminole!

I have been a  part of Stewards of Lake Seminole from the very beginning, and the future of Lake Seminole has never looked brighter! Working with Steve Dickman and the rest of the board has been an eye-opening experience. To see the passion for this treasure of a fishery has been amazing! As we move into the new year, the action plans that have been developed will keep Lake Seminole as a premier destination well into the future.
