With water temperatures hovering around 90 degrees fishing has slowed down some. You need to fish very early in the morning or at night to catch the bigger fish. Each day seems to be a different approach. One day they will hit shiners and the next day they won't hardly touch them. Find running water when we get a good shower the night before the water seems to cool down a couple degrees and the bite will be strong the next morning. On artificial top water such as flukes and zara spooks in the early morning for about an hour the move into cover such as lily pads and hydrilla. Fish worms and sinkos in watermelon and gord green slow and deliberate to get bit. Lake Toho and Lake Kissimmee are the best on the chain because of the water levels in the middle part of the chain are low.

Great Fishing!
