Largemouth bass should be actively foraging during the period as they seek to replenish their energy reserves drained from the rigors of the spawning season. As a result, anglers should be able to locate hungry bass in native grasses, bulrush or hydrilla within Goblets Cove, South Steer Beach, Lanier Point, Little Grassy Island, Brown’s Point and offshore of the Kissimmee lakefront. Both live and artificial bait should be very effective utilized within these areas. Golden shiners will be the live bait of choice by many anglers, although spinner baits (white or white/chartreuse skirted), lip-less crankbaits (chrome colored), soft-bodied jerkbaits or flukes and plastic worms (colored in watermelon seed, black grape or Junebug) will account for a fair share of the catches.
Anglers targeting shellcracker or bluegill should try and make room in their schedules to include time on the water during the full moon phases of this reporting period. Spawning activity by these popular sport fish should be well under way during these months. While many anglers have their favorite “spots” for catching these fish, one may find the telltale signs of bedding activity (small, six- to eight-inch depressions grouped together) in vegetated areas (lily-pads, knotgrass and bulrush) associated with sandy bottoms. Both North and South Steer Beaches and Brown’s Point have produced good results for anglers in the past. Live bait (crickets and red wigglers) will be the bait of choice by a majority of the anglers seeking these scrappy fighters, but small, artificial jigs or beetle-spins (colored in white or yellow) will also account for some fine stringers of fish.
