Lake Seminole

I have enough spring-time tournaments under my belt to know that if the fish are on beds, it’s hard to win doing something other than sight fishing.

On the first practice day at Lake Seminole I saw fish up on beds. Not a lot but there were enough to keep me interested.  The cold winter still had the majority of the fish pushed back in the pre-spawn stage, but I couldn’t resist the temptation to sight fish.

As the Bassmaster Elite Series opener on Lake Seminole approached, I made plans to share a cabin with pros Jacob Powroznik and Glenn Browne. Though both are newcomers to the Elites, neither could be considered a rookie…both have experienced years of success on the FLW Tour.

With our cabin located near the mouth of Spring Creek, some 25 miles from headquarters in Bainbridge, Ga., we had good access to the main lake. There, the creek merges with two other major tributaries; the Flint and Chattahoochee, and it's also where the largest numbers of fish are found.

It is no secret that Gary Yamamoto imprinted his name in the annals of fishing history with unique designs crafted from salt laden, super soft plastic resins.  That does not mean that he does not also have some extremely effective lures in his catalog that have nothing to do salty plastic resins or strange sounding words like Senko, Ika or Hula.  How about a word that has been around fishing for 60 years—How about SPINNERBAIT?

Beatin' the Bank with Bernie Schultz: 2014 Elite Series—Looking Ahead

March 13, 2014

By the time you see this, the 2014 Bassmaster Elite Series will be well underway. The tour begins on Lake Seminole, at the Florida-Georgia state line then moves east to the St. Johns River.

While both of these venues are close to my home in North Florida, I don’t really feel I have any kind of "home field advantage". Despite their close proximity, I've struggled in Florida over the past few seasons. Nevertheless, I remain hopeful.
