  Comments: This lake is known for its hybrid striped bass fishing which can be very exciting in the summer and fall when hybrids roam in large schools and feed on the surface. Fast moving lures and topwater baits work well. Downrigging and drift fishing with live shad are also very effective for hybrids at this lake. Largemouth bass abundance is typically moderate to high, and there is a 16-inch and 5-fish daily bag limit on largemouth bass. White crappie populations vary from year to year, but most white crappie can be found in the upper end of the lake in the spring and fall. Catfish populations are average to above average for area lakes. Sunfish are abundant. Florida largemouth bass were introduced in 1985.
