    The private lake I fish is all catch and release but it is loaded with some big bass.  The local small lakes are producing some nice sized bass. Free lining a shiner (without a bobber or weight) is still producing some of the bigger fish.  A slow falling sinking weightless worm (Producto’s Hot Rod works great) or a white and chartreuse spinner bait reeled in as slowly as possible, are both working quite well.  Be sure to lift up on your rod tip occasionally then let the spinnerbait slowly fall to make it look as like a fluttering bait fish.  If you think you are fishing too slow, slow down even more.  These baits can produce some huge bass but they have to be worked very slowly.  (You want to feel the blades pulling or turning)  Lake Dora, Lake Harris, Lake Eustis and Little Lake Harris are still giving up some nice bass on large shiners and flipping the heavy Kissimmee Grass.  Try a frog or Gamblers Big Easy over lily pads, topped out hydrilla and along weed lines for largemouth bass.  Gamblers Big Easy Swim Bait is a fun bait to throw and seems to produce larger bass.  When all else fails use the drop shot method.  This is very productive if you are a patient fisherman and is easy to rig.  You need a drop shot hook available at all local tackle shops.  This is one of my go to baits and has produced hundreds of bass up to 10 pounds.  I usually use a 1/4 ounce weight unless it is windy then I'll use a 1/2 ounce one.  A small 4 inch worm in your favorite color (I use June/Bug) is the best worm to use.  Try this for a great day on the lake.
