Fishing in Central Florida this year has been slow, yet the crappie being caught have had good size.
One of the problems encountered by anglers has been high wind. It doesn’t take a lot of wind on Florida’s shallow, unprotected lakes to make fishing difficult, if not impossible. And, it also can be dangerous.
My brother-in-law Paul Cooper from West Lafayette, IN, poses with a nice crappie from Lake Kissiimmee. He was fishing with Dennis Daniels from Lake City, MI. Dennis takes credit for his guiding ability and the photo.
For the most part, they have been catching crappie on minnows, but have had some luck with jigs.
