Moving To Lakeland Nov. 1St.

Recommended Posts

I will be moving to Lakeland the 1st week of November (see introduction) and would like to ask a couple questions.

I'm interested primarily in LM bass and Crappie.

What would be the closest good lake for these 2 species?

Is November a good time to fish them here?

What are popular lure choices for both?

Thanks for your help. Looking forward to the move to Lakeland.

There are hundreds of lakes to choose from.

November is great fishing for both LM and Specks (the fla name for crappie)

Small hal flies or minnows will get the specks.

LM are a little picky depending on the weather but here are the basic setups.

I pulled this from a previous post:

This is all you need for most natural Florida lakes under most conditions.

Medium Heavy to Heavy rods with 30 to 65 lb braid.

I always have the following on the deck.

https://www.bittersbaitandtackle.com/ Naked Swimmer watermellon/gold glitter,Rig with a bobber stop, 1/8 th oz bullet weight and a 3-0 EWG Superline hook on 30 lb Power Pro braid. Fish it fast just below the surface in the pads, around buggy whips or over the hydrilla.

Bitters Vibe in blueberry and green pumkin Rig with same weight and hook as above on 12 lb berkley big game mono.

https://www.megastri...ducts.com/shop/ mega bug black/blue claws, Rig with a bobber stop, 1 oz tunsten bullet weight and a 3-0 EWG Superline hook on 65 lb Power Pro braid. Pitch it in and around the outside edges of the hydrilla and Kissimmee grass patches and in thick pads.

http://www.gambler-b...line-store.html Cane toad in Lane Toad, Rig the same as the naked swimmer above except on 65 lb braid.

10" ribbon tail worm in blue berry or junebug Rig the same as the megabug except with a 3/8 oz bullet.

The only other rod you might need is a medium spooled with 12 lb big game and a 30lb snap. I use this to throw a zara spook, devils horse, rattle trap, and small square billed cranks.

Send me a PM when you get here and I will point you in the right direction.

Bill, don't hesitate to ask whatever you feel. There are a bunch of really good people from the Florida region that regularly post here. Plenty of really good info and a bunch of really good anglers around here.
