This main lake grass is good, it has plenty of Kissimmee grass. Also look for scattered offshore eelgrass and peppergrass is gold if you can find it. Fish like most lakes, spawn shallow in the grass edges. Because of the access of canals off the main lake, look for spawning bass canals during the spring time spawn on full and new moons.
When fishing on Lake Pierce over several days it is not uncommon to catch a 4 or 5 lb bass!
