 Current Forecast:

Largemouth bass anglers should direct their efforts in and around Goblets Cove, South Steer Beach, Lanier and Brown’s points, Little Grassy Island and offshore vegetative communities near 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 spinnerbaits (white or white/chartreuse skirted), lip-less crankbaits (chrome colored) and plastic worms (Watermelon seed, Black Grape, Black/Blue and Junebug colored) will account for a fair share of the catches. Anglers should also be on the lookout for largemouth bass “schooling” activity in open water, where using a lip-less crankbait or topwater chugging bait is a proven method for success.

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 fish species 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, grasses, hydrilla 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 (white or yellow colored) will also account for some fine stringers of fish.
