LAKE OKEECHOBEE: Danny Marsocci of Fast Break Bait and Tackle reports the water in the lake is low and urged anglers to be careful while boating. The bass are biting best in the Eagle Bay area on rattling crankbaits and dark worms. If you want to catch bream, fish crickets in the rim ditch.
LAKE KISSIMMEE: Scott Sniveley of Camp Mack said the water is rising. Cypress Canal is being dredged but still is navigable. The bass are schooling early and late in the day. "They will eat anything," Sniveley said. Shellcrackers are bedding on Grassy Island. Crickets and wigglers are the most effective baits. Sniveley also said big catfish are being caught in the river on live minnows and worms. "We are seeing catfish in the 20- to 30-pound range," Sniveley said.
LAKE ROUSSEAU: Lou Bussierre of Anglers Family Resort reported that bass are still hitting shiners. Bream are most active in the Withalacoochee. Try crickets or grunt worms.
LAKE TARPON: Chris Dance of Tarpon Tom's Bait and Tackle reported bass are being caught on dark plastic worms in 6-8 feet of water. "The bass have also been biting in the out-fall canal on wild shiners and jerk worms," Dance said. The panfish action continues to be good on crickets and wigglers.
