Seminole Lake

The beautiful Seminole Lake is located in the southwest corner of Georgia. The Chattahoochee and Flint rivers flow together into Lake Seminole and the Apalachicola River. Seminole Lake holds the state record for Sunshine Bass; 16 lbs 5 oz. What is a Sunshine Bass?
Here is the information from the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission,Sunshine bass were first produced in Florida by state hatcheries, and all sunshine’s are still produced and stocked. This is because they are a hybrid of a female white bass and male striped bass that does not occur naturally. Sunshine’s often have broken stripes on the front half and straight lines on the rear half of the body. Other fish in the Lake Seminole include Largemouth Bass, Crappie, Pickerel, Catfish, and Striped Bass among other species. Also, you may see an American Alligator swimming in the waters along with snakes and much waterfowl.See more river, lake and bay maps at
