Fishing/Lake Seminole Georgia


Mr. Gaither,

After 30 or so years of being away from this area, I have recently returned and desire to learn more about fishing Lake Seminole.  In trying to learn more about the lake, I have spent a lot of time on the internet and find that your articles are the most interesting and informative.  Many names are used today that I have never heard of when describing places to fish on Lake Seminole.  Perhaps most of that is because my fishing was always limited to the Chattahoochee side.

I live nearby and am wondering if there is a way that you and I could take a paper fishing trip; e.g., one on a map and perhaps over breakfast or lunch.

Ralph.  I see no reason we could not do what you ask and perhaps actually go on the water and
see the places we marked.  Much of my fishing has been in Spring creek arm and that mostly from
Rattlesnake Point to what was called Knights Landing or Wid Kin Place among others.  I live
near Reynolds Landing.  I do not have a boat in service right now though.  My e-mail address
is and phone number is 229-861-2366,  Write or call and we will get

PLEASE, PLEASE, READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE ASKING YOUR QUESTION. THANK YOU. PLEASE, I HAVE BEEN GETTING MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ANTIQUE RODS, REELS ETC. I hate to refuse questions but I really can not be of help in this. If you have an old rod, reel, lure etc. try contacting the maker if still existing or try antique fishing tackle on the web. I am genuinely sorry that I CAN NOT ANSWER SUCH QUESTIONS. I have been bass, crappie, brim and catfishing for over 70 years. Most of my recent experience has been on the Apalachicola R. in Fl. panhandle, and Lake Seminole. I can answer many questions on places to go and some ideas on tactics especially for largemouth bass in these waters. I can`t tell you what fish will bite but can give some lures and methods that have worked well for me over the last 33 years in this area. I am also well versed on boating safety and small boat handling.


I am not a guide nor a writer or publisher of any magazine on fishing. All of my ideas would come from my experiences and those of fishing partners in local bass clubs in Panama City, Florida or from reading many books and magazine articles over the years.
