Breaking down the third FLW Tour stop of 2019, stat by stat

Grass fisheries have dominated the early 2019 FLW Tour schedule, resulting in slugfests on Sam Rayburn and Lake Toho. Lake Seminole, another fishery full of lush grass, is next up, and it’s a good bet we see similar results for the Tour’s third stop March 7-10. Though Seminole is light on Tour history, the lake is no stranger to FLW tournaments and bass fishing as a whole. 

We’ll break down Seminole with some facts and stats on the fishery.

 

1

Number of previous FLW Tour events at Seminole. Only one current Tour angler fished that event—Rusty Trancygier, who fished it as a co-angler.

 

3

Days that Bryan Thrift has failed to catch a limit on Seminole. Heading into Seminole, Thrift’s record-setting streak of consecutive FLW Tour limits is sitting at 70, but back in 2007 he threw up a triple-digit finish and never managed a limit in a wintertime Costa FLW Series event on the big lake.

 

9-2

Largest bass weighed in for Big Bass in Costa FLW Series competition. Both Ron Wolfarth and Mark Peiser landed 9-pound, 2-ounce bass in the 2007 Southeastern Division event on Seminole.

 

10

Average depth of Seminole in feet. The (mostly) shallow-water fishery is known for its abundance of standing timber and grass. Ten is also the number of FLW events JTodd Tucker has fished at Lake Seminole. He’s the only angler on Tour who lives within 50 miles of takeoff.

 

12-5

Largest bass weighed in for Big Bass across all FLW circuits. Danny Odell landed the behemoth in 1998 in a BFL Bulldog Division event.

 

16.25

Estimated weight of the unofficial lake record largemouth from Seminole.

 

28-01

Largest one-day stringer in YETI FLW College Fishing competition, weighed in by Cole Floyd and Carter McNeil of Bethel in 2018.

 

30-07

Largest one-day stringer across all FLW competition. Terry Stevens weighed in the mega-bag on Feb. 21, 2004 in T-H Marine Bass Fishing League (BFL) Bulldog Division competition.

 

38

Approximate maximum depth of Seminole in feet.

 

62-14

Largest four-day winning weight at Seminole. Jeff Magee won the only previous FLW Tour event (1996) at the fishery.

 

73-10

Largest three-day winning weight at Seminole in Costa FLW Series competition, compiled by Robert Tindell in 2013.

 

376

Miles of shoreline on Lake Seminole.

 

1929

The year the late Jack Wingate, the “Sage of Seminole” was born. Wingate was instrumental in the early operations of B.A.S.S., and Jack Wingate’s Lunker Lodge on the shores of Seminole remains a monument to the fishing guide and local legend.

1957

Year Lake Seminole was officially opened after the completion of the Jim Woodruff Dam in 1952.

 

1993

The year Alan Jackson released the country classic Chattahoochee. The Chattahoochee River is the westernmost of the three main arms of Seminole.

 

2,224

Length of the spillway of the Jim Woodruff Dam in feet. The nearly half-mile dam crosses the state line between Georgia and Florida.

 

37,500

Approximate surface area of Seminole in acres.
