Yet another nice bass falls victim to the Zoom 7″ trick worm. The fishing in Polk County for bass is about to go full steam with the cooling of the water. Bass have been hitting the Zoom 7″ trick worm in just about every lake I go to. They also have been hitting the Scorpion swim jigs. These fish on the jigs have averaging from 5 to 7lbs so far. Not many little ones on the jigs. Just been slowly pumping the jig along swimming it thru the structure whether it be grass, wood or lily pads. I especially like the dollar sized lily pads.With the water cooling down now we’re going to start fishing for some crappie.
Try some phosphate pit fishing
When fishing in Polk County be sure to try some of the incredible fishing in the phosphate pits. The fish pictured above was caught in a phosphate pit in Central Polk County. The fishing gear I was using on this perticular pit was a Lews bait caster and a custom rod that I don’t even know who made it.
The lakes of Polk County are going to start getting hot. In just a few short weeks once the cold fronts start coming thru. The bass will do their usual thing and hit your normal artificials like plastic worms flipped or pitched in heavy weedbeds and Kissimmee grass. They will also be hitting shiners.
I will be hitting some of the lakes around the Frostproff area. Lakes like Lake Buffum, Crooked lake, Lake Reedy,Surveyor lake,and others. You can find some nice bass in some of the smaller sleeper lakes. Polk County has it’s share of lakes and phosphate its to fish in. So if you can get out and do some fishing by all means do so. Good Luck.
