February Fishing Report

Last week has been full of fun and excitement. The Uncle Joe’s area of the lake has produced good numbers of bass ranging 1-3 pounds. Gambler Fat Ace in Black/Blue Flake or Junebug or a Gambler Burner Worm in those same colors seem to be the bait of choice. For the flippers and pitchers a Gambler Why Not in Black /Blue / Blue Tip has worked as well. Other areas to look at have been from Cochrans Pass and Blue Hole toward Clewiston. Early in the morning look for eel grass or pepper grass and use a 3/8 swim jig in white or black/blue color with a easy swimmer trailer. This time of year you can never count out a big fish to be roaming around looking for shad or shiners early in the mornings. The Speck bite or Crappie bite has been great as well. Minnows or Chartruse/Whits Jigs around cattail clumps have been the way to catch limits of slabs. East Wall and toward the outside of Ritta Island seem to be the better bets right now. The rim canal has also produced good numbers of crappie when the wind is blowing. Its protected for the most part and you can still catch fish using minnows in 4-6′ of water around lily pads. Hope this helps and Tight Lines.
