Lake June-in-Winter Florida

Recommended Posts

How about this lake? ......Anybody? I wanna catch some fish but don't wanna go where the fish get pounded by tournaments every weekend.

And don't want to waste my time with a lake that aint got no pigs in em.

Anybody share some info with a fishin' bro?

So am I to assume that since there have been no responses to this thread that  NO ONE in central florida has fished this lake?

Maybe I ought to turn the question around......Can anyone suggest a good lake in central florida that has some hawgs in it that is not constantly barraged with tournaments?

I would say that Johns Lake is my favorite lake without a huge amount of pressure that I have caught big fish in.  I have started fishing some of the smaller lakes in Polk Co that have limited boat ramp parking.  This keeps the tourneys away.  Try this site  http://www.theledger.com/article/20080316/NEWS/803160307/1016/SPORTS09

i didn't reply because in your first post you said that you:

a) didn't want to fish a lake that gets poundedevery weekend. here in florida that is very hard to find, unless it is private or in your own back yard.

B) you don't want to waste your time if there are no pigs in them. every lake down here has big fish. you just have to outwit them.

with that said, i have fished lake june (in a tourny, and i finished 3rd) and all of my fish came from the canals. i don't know what kind of boat you have, but there is  alittlelake in the southeast side that  you will probably have to get out of your boat and push it under the bridge. it is only about a foot or 2 deep. once you get in that little lake, to the left there is some hydrilla and all kinds of trees, vegetation and docks. senkos got most of my fish, but it was really windy that day. i believe we had 15 pounds, and the winner had 18. the guy who won, caught all of his fish on a pointer.

Thanks boca.....appreciate the info....I'll be in a good sized boat so pushin it through 1 to 2 feet of water is probably out of the question.

You mentioned canals.....were those the ones on the north end or the south end.....or both? You also mentioned a pointer....is that the bait by Lucky Craft?

the canals i fished were on the south side of the lake. look for a golf course, and follow the shoreline until you see the bridge. work the opening in front of the bridge before going through, i caught a couple there on a pointer ( yes the lucky craft slender pointer). i wish we found that lake on the southeast side sooner, because there are some good fish in there. we just ran out of time. good luck.

Thanks again for the info sir.......That lake you mentioned on the southeast side.....is that accessible through lake june? On Google Earth I see a lake on the northeast side that is accessible through the big lake...it's called Lake Henry. Is this the one you are speaking of?

i don't think it is lake henry. i believe it is just a small community lake that is attached to lake june. we had to get out of my friends tracker and push our way under the bridge. if i were to go back, that is right where i would start.

Thanks again Boca, if it is attached, I do believe we are talkin about the same little lake.....I heard from a friend of mine that has fished there before and he too said that it is a good place to start, but depending on the water depth it may be too shallow to push through for the boat I will be in. I'll just have to see when I get there.....thank you again for all the info...I'll let ya know how I do. Headin' out first thing in the a.m.  

Will be back home on Sunday evening.

Lake June in Winter report:

Fish were caught on worms and baby brush hogs......Gambler sweebo red bug worms skipped under docks fished wacky style....red bug trick worms fished behind secondary kissimmee grass lines fished texas rigged......watermelon red baby brush hogs also skipped under docks weightless.......no fish caught on any kind of hard baits......no topwater bite at all. Saw some beds that were still active in up to 5 to 6 ft of water. All in all good trip.....will go back again.....thanks again boca for the info......the water was way too low to make it into that small lake......didn't even go into the canals, there were plenty of docks on the main lake to keep us busy.
