Checking the boat at the dock after dark, found three gators out tonight. All right near our dock. Thought it would be too cool, but guess not. Our peach trees are blooming, citrus trees putting on new growth. Hope a late freeze don't mess my trees up. Also have a lemon tree full of bloom. Crossing my fingers.

Pitched top water in Seminole for a spell today. Didn't get a rise. Time for a change of lures next time out.

Believe it was in March when these bass were caught in Seminole, out in front of Spooner's field. Caught 7 that day from 4 pounds up to 8 1/2. Some tournament fishermen came by and couldn't believe it. They had not had such luck. When I decide to bass fish, I usually catch a few good one's. Here are a few I have photo's of. I believe in catch and release, in hot grease.

Bass will be on the bed some very soon. Can't wait to be back to Seminole. Fishes better now than back in the day IMO. Favorite place on earth.

Lake Seminole, SW Ga. Fishermen coming by the dock say the main lake is still stained. Our smaller connecting lakes are clear as a crystal. Probably why they're fishing in here.

55 degrees at Seminole at daybreak this morning. Still not seeing any fish activity in shallow water, nor at the dock where it's six feet deep. Must be hanging out deeper in a comfort zone.

Checked the Flint river and Spring Creek this afternoon while on a trip to Bainbridge. Both are very muddy and flowing strong.

Tried some late afternoon bass fishing in the Cypress Pond area. Didn't last long, the little black mosquito's were too much. Believe i managed about five cast before giving up. Should have taken a thermacell.

Lots of rain, water running through our hunting woods. But haven't seen any minnows or small fish in any of it. Believe when it's cold, they don't go with the flow much. When the waters quit flowing, and low areas become stagnant The mosquito's will be bad without minnows to eat the larvae.

Checking Lake Seminole today. Buck bass moving into the shallows. Bit good on plastic worm. Must have opened the dam, lake is almost down to normal level. Rain moved in around 4 thirty this afternoon, temps falling.

At the dock few minutes ago, while the rain had quit a bit. Saw the first bass on the bed, about 2 pound buck. Someone will come along and snatch his lips sooner or later. Bass boats are on the water today. Too cold and wet for me. Lake Seminole on the Seminole Co. Ga side.

Yesterday, Seminole was about normal level. Today, it's too high again. Up to the bottom of the dock at Cypress Pond. Noticed a few boats coming by today...

Lots of water north of you. I was in Mitchell and Decatur county’s today and water was running in most ditches. It’s all got to come your way.
Spring is about here. Looks like another cold spell then that may do it.
Been seeing robins in the yard and blooms on the peach trees. I am hoping for some mayhaws this year.

Yes on the mayhaws, haven't had a good crop in several years now. They are blooming, been checking them. This is how our mayhaw area looks now. It's mayhaw trees for several hundred yards. It's been several years since we had a decent crop of mayhaws. Had to wade to get em.

Seminole is down today, water running out of the connecting smaller lakes so fast it's got the aquatic weeds laying down with the flow. Finally could get the pontoon boat under the bridge at Cypress Pond. Took the boat out for a cleaning, put on new stickers and put a transducer back on that was knocked off last time out.

Fished four hours today in Hickory pond (lake Seminole connected) Didn't get a bite, was fishing with crickets. Gators were out in numbers. Slipped up on one close enough for a photo.

Lake Seminole, Ga side. Low water conditions, big lake should be clearing up a bit if it doesn't rain. Specks out near the channel in 20 feet of water. Minnows

Out on Seminole today, just cruising in the pontoon boat. Talked to some fishermen who were fishing near the gator hole. Said they were catching big specks at night there. Another said he caught some specks out near the barge channel, Chattahoochee side of the lake at 20 feet. They are not catching the limit, but said the fish were large with the average catch of 10 to 15 or so.
