Bass and bream fishing has remained steady throughout the course of a day with the bass most actively feeding early in the mornings on lures like swim baits and spinner baits, along with senkos thrown into grass pockets/cuts. The shad spawn is over for the most part but keep a spinner bait and swim bait tied on and handy as they will come up schooling. This is normal, so hang with it and keep moving forward and when you come across isolated, thicker clumps of grass/reeds have your flipping/pitching stick handy with either a creature-style lure like a Gene Larew Hoo-Daddy or Crawdad tied on and pitch it in the thickest/ shadiest part that you see and hang on. Normally this is where you find your kicker fish. Big worms out in more open-water areas are working and senkos in thicker areas of vegetation are the go-to.
The bream and shell cracker bite is in full force and both have been active on/around the beds since early May timeframe. When fishing for either one, I stick with a small red worm rigged on a 4-foot ultra-light spinning rod/reel tipped with a small round split shot weight, bobber with a stop located above/below the bobber and small hook with a longer shank. The bream are being caught near the Kissimmee river edges; along the Clewiston channel area; around both Rita/Kreamer Islands, parts of East/ West wall and Uncle Joe’s area. On the North-end around Dupree bar; flat areas of the channel leaving the Harney Pond ditch.
