Lake George Fishing

Lake George is the second largest lake in Florida and connects to the St. Johns River at the north end of the lake. Lake George features a high salt content and therefore numerous saltwater fish thrive in the lake. Lake George is a shallow lake with an average depth of 10 feet. The Ocala National Forest is located on the western shore of Lake George and is the most visited of the three national forests in Florida. Try the Juniper, Salt, and Silver Glen spring runs on the western shore of Lake George for great trophy bass fishing. Largemouth bass hit throughout the year on Lake George but bite best in the spring and fall months. Live shiners, bullhead minnows, plastic worms, and topwater lures work best for bass. Striped bass fishing is good in the spring on large shiners and large plugs such as the Shad Rap. Crappie fishing is best during the cooler months on live minnows. Bluegill angling is good in the summer on crickets and earthworms and redear fishing is best in the spring and early summer on live earthworms. The craters of the old abandoned bombing range area are good fishing spots for stripers.
