Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report
As previously reported the bass have moved out into the open waters of Farm 13 and setting up summer housekeeping in the old irrigation ditches and their associated levees.
Those that know the lake are doing quite well, and those that don't are struggling. We have some locals that know the lake extremely well and they send me reports and pictures of how they are doing.
Obviously I can't tell you exactly where these fish were caught, other than to say it was on the Farm side of the Lake. I know the first came on a SwimmingSenko, but I am not sure on the other two. I can tell you that these fellows know the lake and have years of experience out there.
The weather has been tough with windy conditions and high heat. The afternoon storms have been coming on a regular basis wiping out much of the later afternoon fishing. The weather has made for some tough fishing conditions even with good lake knowledge but in most instances a big fish here and there save the day.
Yesterday Jimmy Mayhugh of Deland and I spent the day catching some really good bass. Jimmy was here last week but as can happen with fishing things went wrong. Barely into the day my trolling motor decided to quit and with winds blowing at 15 MPH fishing was a no go. Jimmy made up for that with a very good day with his return trip.

Stick Marsh-Farm 13 Fishing Forecast:
Summer fishing should remain good with the potential for super if we get lots of rain.
