 Current Forecast:

Largemouth bass anglers should concentrate their efforts in and around Goblets Cove, Lanier and Brown’s points, Little Grassy Island and offshore vegetative communities near channel marker 24.  Both live and artificial baits should be very effective utilized within these areas.  Golden shiners will be the live bait of choice by many anglers, although spinnerbaits (white or white/chartreuse skirted), soft-bodied jerkbaits and swimbaits (Junebug, motor oil and watermelon colored), lip-less crankbaits (chrome colored), plastic worms and frog imitations (Black Grape, Black/Blue and Junebug colored) will account for a fair share of the catches.

Anglers targeting 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 valued sport fish should be well under way during these months and anglers should seek areas in the lake having sandy bottoms to try their luck.  While many anglers have their favorite “locations” for catching bluegill, one may find the telltale signs of bedding activity (small, six- to eight-inch depressions grouped together) in vegetated areas associated with sandy bottoms along North and South Steer Beaches, Big Grassy Island and open water, east of Makinson Island.  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 bettle-spins (white or yellow colored) will also account for some fine stringers of fish.


FWC Facts:
Some biologists feel that mullet jump because they are trying to remove parasites. Others believe it may be part of schooling behavior in mullet.
