 Current Forecast:

Largemouth bass anglers may want to direct their time on the water around South Steer Beach, Lanier Point, Goblets Cove, Brown’s Point and the mouth of Shingle Creek and St. Cloud canal (C-31).  Offshore hydrilla patches near channel marker 24, Little Grassy Island and in Goblets Cove should also hold a good number of bass.  Additionally, anglers who can find moving water associated with rainfall runoff should give these areas a cast or two.  Both live and artificial baits should be very effective utilized within all the above mentioned areas.  Golden shiners will be the live bait of choice by many anglers, although spinnerbaits (white, white/chartreuse or yellow skirted), lip-less crankbaits (chrome or shad colored), swimbaits and plastic worms (motor oil, watermelon seed, black/blue and junebug colored) will account for a fair share of the catches.

Typical for this time of year, spawning activity by bluegill will be in full force in Lake Tohopekaliga.  Anglers targeting bluegill should try and schedule time on the water around the new and full moon phases and concentrate their efforts in areas having sandy bottoms associated with native vegetation.  Brown’s Point and North Steer Beach are two areas of the lake which have been productive over the years.  Live bait (crickets and red wigglers) will be the bait of choice by many bluegill anglers, but small, artificial jigs (tube lure or curl-tailed) or bettle-spins (white or yellow colored) will also account for some respectable stringers of fish.
