FLORIDA: Little Lake Lena in city of Auburn-dale produced six bass of over 10 pounds last week; one brace weighed 26 pounds. Other central Florida lakes fair to good, with Kissimmee River and headwater lakes your best bet in this section. In Tallahassee area, Lakes Jackson and Talquin are most productive.
BONEFISH: BAHAMAS: OG from now to mid-March as heavy bonefish prowl shallows; live shrimp bait available at Bimini, but fly and spin fishermen will get fast action at Joulter Cays and Abaco area.
CHANNEL BASS: LOUISIANA: Reds are running in protected bays and bayous from Delacroix Island section westward (but check to make sure northwester hasn't blown them out).
FLORIDA: Two anglers fishing just north of Clearwater- Tampa causeway took 26 reds from 5 to 8 pounds on live shrimp last Saturday (and 11 speckled trout to 3 pounds). A few bulls to 15 pounds reported from mouths of St. Marks and Carrabelle rivers; best bait for bruisers is whole pinfish.
NORTH CAROLINA: Jumpy barometer has knocked drum off their feed; OP until weather betters.
CATFISH: FLORIDA: If you hanker for a heaping plate of fried channel cat, dunk a hookful of mullet guts in the Ochlockonee River along around midnight tonight.
TROUT: NEW MEXICO: 6,500 legal trout were poured into drainage canals paralleling the Rio Grande River last week and left to fend for selves in chilly water; no closed season in this valley.
