I to left for Florida Thursday night, on way to step-daughter in Tallahassee. I opted to take boat as after I screened in a porch for her I would have two days to fish. As I pulled in to Tallahassee they were having a tornado and heavy rain. The run off was making ditches into small rivers. Finally go to hit the lake Sunday at daybreak, water was murky, Lake Talquin is just west of Tallahassee, it is supposed to be a crappie fishing heaven, they had reported 2 pounders being caught regularly. I am just a couple of days late for that. Water temp 60, muddy, no crappie even biting. So pretty quick a change to Bass fishing. Shaky head, caught 2 nice 3 ½ lbs right off the bat on a point with current coming across it, it also had a flat about 6 ft dropping into 20 ft of water. Decided to look around lake and fish other areas. Spent rest of day checking out other areas, caught several fish in 3 lb range.
Next morning on water at daylight, trolled out to point I FISHED FIRST THE DAY BEFORE, made first cast had a 5 lbs bass, shaky Head, green pumpkin 6” worm, in next hour landed several more from 3 to 5 lbs, 2 hours later still fishing point, landed 7.2 lb LM. I stayed there all day, boat over 70 bass almost all over 3 lbs. Also caught several Hybrid Stripers in 6 to 8 lb range, Was worth pulling the Ranger to Fl. Wished I could have stayed longer.
