when targeting Strippers at Seminole...the water level really isn't all that important. The temperature however is another matter. Anything below 80 sort of turns em off. :-D

LAKE SEMINOLE IS FULL, STAINED AND 74 DEGREES BY MATT BATY

Bass fishing is good and the fish are starting to group up together in schools and are beginning the post-spawn patterns. Look for the first break lines that are near the edge of the spawning flats. These break lines can range anywhere from 7 to 10 feet or 11 to 20 feet. The fish will be relating to both of these depths depending on which area of the lake you are fishing. There are several different techniques to use to catch fish off of the these areas. Our personal favorite is to fish crank bait. There are 2 crank baits that are working particularly well. The first one is a new one by Spro called a Fat Papa 70. Use the Tennessee River Gizzard Shad Pattern as it is different than anything else on the lake that anyone is throwing. This bait runs about 7 to 10 feet so it will work real well on those shallow break lines. You need to fish this bait on 14 lb. Sunline FC Sniper Fluorocarbon. The other crank bait that works will is a Stanford Cedar Shad in the Deep version. Summer color is the best one and this bait runs to depths of 12 to 14 feet on 12 pound Sunline FC Sniper Fluorocarbon. Once you find a school of fish and they quit biting the crank bait, then switch to a Big Bite Baits 6" Jerk Minnow in white. Fish this bait on 10 lb. Sunline FC Sniper Fluorocarbon in order to get it to its maximum depths. Fish it as deep as you can and slow in order to entice strikes from post spawn fish. Use a 6/0 Gamakatsu Superline Monster Hook, because this is a big bait. Learn how to use the Lowrance Structure Scan and Down Scan technology with Southern Fishing On the Water fishing schools.
