We have been catching bass on live bait and artificial right now. The Redear sun fish are coming to spawn in the spatterdock lilly pads. They spend the majority of the time in the year in open water. Bait of choice is fly rod with poppers. Also crickets under float are a sure bet. We are located 30 minutes from Walt Disney World and Attractions. The Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is considered to be one of the top Bass and Crappie and panfish destinations in North America.
