Both air and water temperatures are still in the high 80’s, the largemouth bass bite has been good to excellent from Lake Toho all the way down to the Kissimmee River. Because of moving water, the key as guides has been setting up on the outflow of the canals that connect the lakes.
Great numbers of bass are being caught over last week, although the size has dropped a bit in Kissimmee. We recommend setting up on the outflow points of the canals and working spinnerbaits, senkos or even crankbaits along the moving water.
When we find running water near any vegetation, you should find bait and bass. The flowing water is also creating bait schools, which in turn brings schooling bass to the surface early in the morning or later in the day.
While it is too early to really concentrate on crappie, the tasty panfish can be caught at the crack of dawn and will readily take a jig tipped minnow working around lily pads or submerged grass.
While this season is already setting up to be a good one, the additional water will help all of the Florida fishing!
