LAKE KISSSIMMEE FISHING REPORT – DECEMBER 2021
Welcome to December in Florida where the weather changes and we have all four seasons from 0500 til 1700 each day, that would be from 5AM – 5PM for all the civies out there.
According to the Farmer’s Almanac December will be milder to warm with but not as mush rain but we’ll see what happens.
These are not necessarily bad things if we know how to approach these conditions, if that forecast holds true. So, let’s figure out what will be happening this month with the bass fishing in both Winter Haven and over on the Kissimmee Chain.
In Winter Haven on the South Chain and many of the other lakes around town cooler evenings have brought the lake temps down which will mean we will start seeing the bass transition to the shallower grass lines. Keep in mind, if a big cold front crashes on us quickly, those fish will retreat and find warmer water until things stabilize again.
It’s hard to give you a concrete answer on what’s going to come about of course, but I’m going to have jerkbaits, swimjigs, and swimbaits tied-on at all times if the Almanac is correct. For me and my guests, we can work them at a variety of depth ranges and speeds, and have several colors from the natural “watermelons”, maybe something black & blue, to whatever your favorite color may be.
Over on Lake Kissimmee and the Chain, the “stable” temps will be very welcome, and the rain even more so. As of mid-November, the lakes were at extremely low water levels and caution is advised for those who have not fished here before, or been gone for the summer. There is a deriving project between Cypress and the Toho canal that boats are not able to head north and lock through right now.
I’m not going to be sitting in one spot for very long if the forecast holds true. I’m going to be on the move checking everything from the “deep water” shell beds, to the outside grasslines with – again – “deeper” water adjacent, to the thicker hydrilla mats until we know what Mother Nature is really going to throw at us.
