Freshwater fishing: Largemouth bass are still the big catch

1. Around Lakeland, at Tenoroc, bass anglers had the best success this past week on lakes Butterfly, Hydrilla, 2, 3, 5, C and Picnic. Most of the bass reported were in the 12- to 16-inch range with three large bass in the 23- to 24-inch range. Anglers are having the most success fishing with artificial worms, jerk baits and shiners. Speck fishing was best on lakes Cemetery, 3, 4, 5 and G. The best lakes for panfish were Lakes Cemetery, 3, 5, B and C. Lakes Derby and C were best for catfish, reports FWC biologist Keaton Fish.

2. At Auburndale, bass fishing is pretty decent at Lake Juliana. In Lake Alfred, the bass fishing is good too. Swim baits, topwater creature bait, jigs and lipless crankbaits are all getting the bite. Lakes Haines, Rochelle, Alfred, Big Swoop and Echol all have a good bite. The docks and shoreline are good right now. Shellcracker, bluegill and specks all good, reports Ron Schelfo at Ron’s Tackle Box (863-956-4990).
