Any ideas in Central Fl this weekend?

Recommended Posts

Man was it cold this morning!  Wonder how bad it slammed the fish.

With it warming up this weekend I'm thinking shallow pads on the North side of the lakes that have been protected from that cold north wind all week.

Any other Ideas?

I am going out on Conway Sunday.  I will try both of those techniques and anything else I can think of.  I will report back after the weekend.  Good luck to you both.

Here in Polk County Florida, it was below freezing Wednesday night with a wind-chill factor in the teens!

During winter in Florida, a miserable cold-front followed by a warming trend is the best weather you can hope for.

If I were going bass fishing this weekend (don't see it happening), I would favor the sunniest shallow flats

especially during the afternoon hours between 1pm and sunset after a buildup of solar gain.

Anglers Tend To Rush The Seasons:

Every year around this time I get the same report from my fishing neighbors on Lake Weohyakapka (Lake Walk-In-Water).

They tell me excitedly that "The Cows Are Bedding!". It should be indicated though that there's a big difference

between pre-spawn bass that are "basking" in shallow water and spawn-stage bass that are "bedding" in shallow water.

Bass seen in shallow water during December and early January are generally basking and not spawning (which is a good thing).

For the most part, the spawning ritual in central Florida will not get underway until February and March, often continuing through April.

rolo, you like clear, stained, or dirty water?

i saw a "cow" on a well formed bed before the front, complete w/ buck, certainly not enough to move out of prespawn mode, but im expecting some spawning this full moon.

I like dingy water best with about 2 to 4 feet visibility.

Except in very cold water, I feel that 2-feet offers an ample window for reaction time.

On the other hand, I feel that a flawed delivery is increasingly more noticeable as the visibility exceeds 4 feet or so.

Most of my deliveries are flawed ;D

I'll look for reed beds or clumps close to deep water,If bass read the same books we do,they should jam up when the weather turns cold.I'll report back after my tournament on Kissimmee Sunday
