Seminole Ramlins

Seminole Ramlins by Jack Wingate

The Talquin Hookers fished Lake Seminole Saterday 10 boats strong in very hot weather. One lady said you could poach an egg on top of her head. This is how they finished: Lonnie Walsh was first and had Big Fish. Sarah Dunn had second and two nice Bass, Tony Scott brung up third. The girls were beet red with the exception of one.

One of the husbands rode to the dam and watched a fisherman pulling in catfish after catfish, some up to 12 lbs. using muscle meat for bait. The Hybrids (Sunshine Bass) were schooling all over the river below the dam.

Most of the Top Water hits has just stopped cold turkey. Most of Mrs. Walsh's ketch was from Flipping and Plastic Swim Baits under the water.

Mr. Brown and son caught 20 lbs. of bass and one went jist over 10 lbs. and had another in the same class break off.

With the passing of this week, many limits of bream were taken off beds. Some newcomers asked were they supposed to fish the stumps, the answer is no, with the exception of Spring Creek, stumps mean deep water.

Fly Rod Fishen has took a turn for the better, White Flys with Spider Legs seem to be the gooduns. Limit catches was made late in the week.

Lonnie Walsh of Coon Bottom, FLwith her winning Big Fish from the Talquin Hookers Tournament held on Saturday. The past week had two important dates to remember, Tuesday, July 3, 1926, the US Army Corps of Engineers was founded. Now Friday the 6, 1944, was D-Day at Normandy. So many were lost that day, and for the next 120 days, each time they fought a battle we lost 5,000 men. WWII soldiers are dying off at the rate of 1,000 per day now.

The moon is at quarter this day, will be dark nites rite soon. Fish should feed in the daytime, let's hope.
