Lake Tarpon Report 5/8
We fished the 4th annual Charity Bass Tournament for Breast Cancer yesterday on Lake Tarpon. We caught 25-30 fish all day and brought a 5 -fish limit to the scales weighing 9lbs with a 3lb kicker. We finished in the middle of the field of 16 boats with the top three spots paying out. First place weighed in around 14 pounds with the next two spots in the 12-13 pound range. We caught most of our fish on Bitters Slings with a few caught on topwater chug bugs and a few on texas rigged junebug worms. Air temps were pushing 90 degrees as was the water temp as it was 85-86 degrees in most areas. Wind was heavy at 10-20 mph with gust up to 25 mph. Seems like the fish are in a post spawn pattern and with the temps where they are, they will probably be moving into their summer hide-outs shortly!
