Central Florida Freshwater Fishing

If recent weather trends continue into the weekend, the fishing will be the same as it has been. But with the start of the backside of the new moon last week, look for good changes to come as we approach the full moon on the 18th of July.

Keep an eye overhead throughout for rapidly forming thunderstorms. The good news is that the influx of fresh water continues to improve things on area lakes and along the St. John’s River.

In lakes like Poinsett and Washington, try to locate areas of moving water where largemouth bass and panfish will lie in wait for small baitfish being flushed through cuts by the current.

Small swimming lures like the Rapala’s work well, but if underwater foliage proves troublesome, go to weedless rigged jerkbaits like Zoom super fluke.

You can work different levels of the water column by opting for weighted hooks. On the St. Johns, continue to look for deeper holes around bends in the river that hold fish. They may become more difficult to locate if we continue getting heavy afternoon rains.
