The summer heat is here and so are those strong afternoon thunderstorms, but the mornings are producing some fun fishing. The fishing has been improving each day I have been out. The rains have slowed down and the high waters have been receding. I have been out on toho this week, and like everyone else, I have been fishing in the canals since the water management gates are still open moving water through the lakes. Crank baits are working the best in the canals. I also have been fishing open water in the middle of the lake, finding sweet spots all over the lake that have deeper hydrilla and plenty of bait fish on them. Sinkos have been working the best, whether they are weightless or with a ¼ once weight texas rigged, we have been catching decent fish.
On the private lake I fish on, the bite is almost back to normal, catching fish in open water with flukes and weightless sinkos. Since the water levels are still above normal, I am also fishing the flooded cypress trees catching fish with top water frogs and flukes. My guests are catching around 15-20 fish in 4 hours on this lake, still a little below what we have been catching, but we have been catching better sized fish then in the past.
Don’t let that summer heat prevent you from coming out with a florida guide. Great fishing and trophy sized bass are being caught thoughout Florida during the summer months so book a trip today.
