Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

John Tucker and his son-in-law Dennis opted in a fishing trip with their

family visit to Disney World on Monday. The weather forecast looked good, with

no chance of rain, light winds, and light clouds. We barely saw the sun and had

to move around to avoid rain, but the wind didn't blow.

First stop was in the spillway area and everyone broke the skunk early on,

but the fish weren't really playing so off we went to the pump house. The

current was moving quickly as the farm fed water back into the lake, but the

fish bite was sporadic. However it was enough to keep the spirits up until

threatening rain called for a move.

We went and check the point at the end of the separation levee, but not much

was happening there. I was going to go just into the Marsh side and work some

rattle traps, but as I rounded the point the sky opened up. We made a quick dash

to the ramp to let the storm pass and while sitting at the table I noticed that

the pipes were flowing pretty good.

Carolina rigs worked in the current produced several fish to include an

8-pound lady. I will have the picture at a later date when Dennis sends me a


On Sunday Scott had Paul Geary out for another trip. Paul hails from Exton,

Pa. and is an avid bass fisherman. On this lake he understands the power of the

native golden shiners and opted to go that route.

Big fish were common and the above 8.5-pound bass was the biggest of the day.

The above 8-pound lady was his second largest.

By 9:30 they had gone through the 5-dozen shiners they brought. Paul had

recently gone through some extensive surgery so with the shiners gone they

called it a morning. What a great morning with something between 40-50 bass

making there way to the boat.

Shiners can be the answer when the fishing gets a bit tough and right now the

decision to take shiners was a very sound one.

See you out there. We are hitting the lake pretty much every day now, so if

you see us, give a shout hello.
