Watch for birds working schools of shad and cast spoons or diving plugs to gamefish feeding beneath the baitfish, or work poppers and surface plugs near the bait. If you are on the water early or late, fish the flats for largemouth bass. The Cornfield and the Man-Made-Island are good areas to try on the Chattahoochee side, or fish the flats near Fishpond Drain and Spring Creek on the Flint side.

If you find some clear water, you can swim a white Big Bite Baits 7-inch Sugar Cane worm around shallow grass and lily pads to target spawning fish or cruising fish. Rig the Sugar Cane worm on 20-lb. Sunline Super Flourocarbon, a 4/0 Gamakatsu hook and a 1/4-oz. Fish Catchin Fool Tungsten weight along with a FCF Bobber Stopper.

Two patterns that are working extremely well are throwing a lipless crankbait and a square-bill crankbait through the grass. A good lipless crankbait is a Spro Aruku Shad 75 in mudbug red. This is a crawfish color and is notorious for catching big bass on Seminole.

Bass on Seminole

on December 3rd

On the Chattahoochee River arm, largemouth bass are often concentrated in the channels that run between the small islands. On the Florida side, the best stretch of river is usually between the Apalachee WMA and Parramore Landing. Fish the channels between the islands, particularly if there is current. Early in the morning, largemouth bass are likely to be on the flats, such as the Cornfield or the area west of the man-made island. Fish top-water early, then switch to artificial lizards, worms, or crankbaits later in the morning through mid-day, and move to deeper water towards afternoon.

“Early in the mornings, look for shad and bream present on main-lake grasslines. Throw a white Spro Super Star spinnerbait and a white buzzbait in these areas. This year, the lake is covered with hydrilla growing everywhere. The fish can be really hard to find, especially during the day after the morning bite. The best technique is flipping.

Bass can be found on the rivers right now. When it gets sunny, try a frog over thick deep weeds and matted grass. Flipping a jig in deep grass is also drawing many bites right now also. Top water around pepper grass is another alternative. A popper in Bream color is working great around mid to deep grass.
