Re: Central Florida?
I used to live in Lakeland and found that even most retention ponds hold nice sized bass.
Saltwater. Love Fort Desoto on a moving tide.
The flats at the mouth of the Anclote river will hold a mixed bag...Wade the flats to the north.
Green key in pasco is also great access...again, at the key...work the flats to the north.
Now that i think about it. The mouth of anclote...at the power plant should be spot on this time of year. Even if the snook, reds and trout are being finicky...there are always plenty of ladyfish.
Another option is the rocky point area of Tampa off SR60...plus, happy hour at Bahama Breeze is pretty good.
Gulf beaches in summer....be there at first light, before the beachcombers..love Clearwater beach for this...easy access...snook in the surf.
