Bass fishing is good. The weather is on fire, and so is the bass fishing on Seminole right now. A local tournament was won with more than 30 pounds, and second place was also 30 pounds. The bass now have high metabolisms with the summer heat and are feeding heavily on bream and shad. The Hydrilla is topping out all over the lake, and the bass are using it to ambush bream and shad at or near the surface, so top water is a good technique to use. A buzzing frog reeled across the surface is a good way to draw explosive strikes from bass on Seminole. Having the right setup is important. Use a Big Bite Baits Buzzing Warmouth in green bluegill to imitate bream, and use pearl to imitate shad. Rig these baits on a 5/0 Gamakatsu Superline EWG Hook, a 1/16 pounce. Fish Catchin Fool tungsten weight, and a Fish Catchin Fool Bobber Stopper. Use 50 lb. Sunline FX2 Braid in the new blue/green color, a Lews 8:3:1 LFS Series Speed Spool, and a 7’4 Duckett Terex heavy action rod. This setup is just about perfect for fishing this technique and hauling the big bass out of the thick grass. This technique can work all day long under any conditions. Another presentation that works well is to fish a hollow body frog such as a Spro Bronzeye Popper. Use albino to imitate shad, and use natural green to imitate bluegill. You can use the same rod/reel/line setup as the swimming frog. These two techniques catch quality bass and get really explosive strikes. If you’re using this technique and having no success, you can always Texas rig the edges of grass lines that are close to the river channel and catch quantity. Expect this technique to work all the way through the dog days of summer.
