The wife and I went to Lake Kissimmee today and fished hard for some bass and bluegill.
The Lake Kissimmee fishing wasn’t what we hoped for. After fishing what seemed like the whole north end of the lake. We wound up with a half dozen bluegills and a bass of about 2lbs. Hope to do better on the next trip.
The wind died down. And it got still so we decided to go home and try again some other day. Lake Kissimmee in my opinon is one of the top bass lakes in the country. When it’s hot it’s hard to beat.
The bluegill will be going on the beds about April or May. Depending on the cold fronts. It will be time to break out the fishing gear. Bream poles and the cricket cages. Just easing around and dropping the crickets in a hole in the grass and wait for the bite.
Hire a guide
If you have never been to Lake Kissimmee hire a guide.They will help you more than you know. Most use shiners for bait. Nothing can compare to wild shiners for largemouth bass. Shiners are kinda pricey but well worth the money.
As far Lake Kissimmee fishing goes you can use a small boat if the wind is light and not to strong. I have an Alumacraft 16.5ft aluminum john boat. With a 25hp Mercury. I don’t have any problems with this boat if the wind is not blowing hard. Make sure you have a nice livewell in the boat so you can hold live bait or fish.
Well fishing in Polk County is good and good reg’s will keep that way. So if you can get down here to Florida to do some bass fishing go for it. Remember to pick up your trash.
