Speckled Perch, also known as Specks or Black Crappie, are popular sport and eating fish caught in area lakes.

With the recent rains and changing temperatures, fish are on the move around southeast Polk. Lakes large and small are seeing good activity.

On Lake Kissimmee, always a hot spot, Bass have moved in shallow. When you think you're shallow, go a little bit shallower, into the pads and flags. Throw an Ol' Monster or Junebug for good reactions.

On Walk-in-the-Water, Speck fishing is heating up at night using minnows. Drift with a light until you draw their attention.

Bass are up shallow, so start fishing anything that is isolated. Fish a super fluke slowly, almost dead sticking it. Patience is the key.

Bass are also up shallow on Lake Hatchineha, so try fishing in isolated cover in the pads. Let a Senko soak for as long as you can stand it. Specks are moving up shallow in the pads, so try jigging with a Muck City jig.
