Lake Kenansville Bass Fishing

Capt. Tim Fey
February 4, 2011
Kissimmee Chain - Freshwater Fishing Report

Today we spent the day doing some scouting out on Lake Kenansville. The day started out very tough, visibility wise as the fog finally burned off right about 10:15. Waters were low and several areas of the lake were choked out with hydrilla. Water temperatures started out right at 69.6 degrees and warmed up to 72 before we pulled off the water around 1pm.

We worked several lures today, ranging from spinner baits to tube baits to entice the bass to bite, and they played fairly well out here for us. Spinner baits and the red eye shad seemed to draw the most attention for sure, but we did manage a few with the tube baits with coffee scent.

Main areas that we worked were areas that were very heavy with hydrilla and scattered reeds. Bass seemed to relate more to the windy side of the matted out areas and would either take your bait real gently, just picking it up and swimming off slowly, or they smacked it hard.

Strike King Coffee Tubes were a great addition to the boat for the day as they did boat some good bass. We caught a bunch but all were of schooling sized bass, but it made for a great day on the water.

We did see several other boats out there today, with most of them crappie fishing, and they all seemed to be catching not only some good numbers but some good sized slabs as well.

Target Species:

largemouth bass
