Dark Water

Recommended Posts

There is a smaller lake next to a lake that I usually fish that I have become curious about and will try fishing in the next couple of weeks.  I went and checked the lake out the other day for the first time and the water is very darkly stained.  The only other time I've seen this color is from the tannin stain that Cyprus trees seem to produce.  Does anyone have any ideas why it would be stained like this?  The entire edge that I can see consists of Brazilian pepper trees and the bottom looks mostly sandy and mucky.  The lake is located on Merritt Island, in Florida.

Junebug.It's the Florida standard ;)  

Other colors that you can't go wrong with for plastics would be:

Black

black blue

red shad

green pumkin/chart

Spinnerbaits in white and white black speckled never fail.

Cranks in white patterns,parrot,and chart/purple back are go to's.

Topwaters in white or bone.Buzzbaits in black.Frogs in black.

Most of the water in Florida is that color or what i call coffee and tea

Oh, I didn't really know that.  I only fish one main lake and it was a shale quarry apparently so the water is kinda clear with a slight tinge of greenish brown.
