Lake Garcia Fl Fishing
Anglers have choices when fishing Garcia, lots of grass, shell bars, cypress trees, and even a few deepwater locations in the middle of the lake. The canals in Garcia lake fishermen report have an adequate concentration of fish, especially panfish. Most anglers focus on the scattered vegetation which is throughout the lake.
Considered a big open reservoir, so not much protection from the elements, especially the wind. When the wind blows, it does tend to stir up the H2O, making it off-colored at best. If you’re not familiar with Fl, it’s common on Blue Cypress, Toho, and even Okeechobee.
It’s considered one of the most scenic lakes in Central Fla, like Farm 13 and Fellesmere lake is was also once old farmland. It’s regarded as a shallow body of water, so caution should be taken until you become familiar with the place. The blessing is, it’s not stumpy like the counterpart, Stick Marsh reservoir, but it does have submerged levees outlining the ditches like Fellesmere Reservior. Because management uses it to filter aqua, at times, it’s full submerged grass of all types, a fair amount of lily pads, and some reeds. You won’t lack seeing wildlife; it’s pretty abundant.
The reservoir is favored because the fishing is good; once you learn it, they produce better each time visited. If there is a downside, the average fish is smaller, and this is simply due to the large population of bass. With all Florida lakes, this one has its share of trophy bass; you have to weed through the masses to find them. So, if you are looking for fun, great action, this may be a place for you.
You’ll like this Reservoir if you give it a chance!!!
The techniques to catching are endless; whatever you want to do, it is available. Flip, Pitch, Crank, Fluck, Worm, Topwater is only limited by your ability and the vegetation. Lures that cover with speed and distancer are good choices when the fish are active; a speed worm or fluke will allow you to do that effectively and not get frustrated. When the angling area is less active, try to share casting a Senko and a great old reliable worm.
If the wind is blowing, try adding a small 1/16 weight to your bait to provide more feel, control, and casting distance—my favorite color in Central Florida is Green Pumpkin, which always does well. As an alternative choice, we like dark colors, Junebug and black.
If topwater is your thing, try a Zoom Horny toad soft plastic frog as it will come through all the cover very well. And like all reservoirs in Fla, the Wild Shiners work very well.
