Catching bass in Polk County will be getting better as the temp’s drop.
Largemouthbass fishing in Florida is at its best as the temp’s drop in the fall. The fish will be trying to fatten up for the upcoming spawn. At the moment the fishing has been good on lake and not so good on another. Starting out with lake Buffum this week. I was able to catch a nice 4lb+ fish on a Zoom 7″ trick worm. In the junebug with the gold glitter. It was about 12:15 pm when it hit. It was in about a 1.5ft of water.
This Saturday I took a drive over to Eagle Lake and caught three bass with a three pounder being the largest. We are into the dog days and the bass are hitting good in the phosphate pits. They are hitting on the CBTB black and blue Scorpion Swim jigs.
Try different methods for bass
Lake Ariana in Auburndale,Fl. has been one of those smaller lakes that has produced big. In recent years I’ve caught some nice bass on this lake. I used frogs to catch some nice bass up to 5lbs. Also used plastic worms to hall in some nice ones. This lake has some deep holes in it so it offers some different types of fishing oppurtunities. While you might get your feet wet launching your boat. It’s well worth it. Good luck.
While we are getting into the dog days the fish will feed in the early morning and afternoon periods.Largemouthbass fishing in Florida can be good all year long. On Eagle Lake I used two different methods to catch my bass. First I moved around casting in open water with a C-tail plastic worm. Then I trolled that same worm and caught two fish using this method.
