New Vegetation Growth


The water is finally starting to drop a bit and clear up as well. We are seeing some new vegetation growth and are expecting the panfishing to increase around the full moon and new moon. The bass fishing has been holding steady with some decent fish being caught on top water and spinner baits…The weather is getting hotter so early morning and late evening has been producing the best.

Also on June 16th we will be hosting the 4th. Annual Panfish Challenge. Pana Vista Lodge and Big & Wild Outdoors Radio Show will host this year’s event again. This event is different than most fishing events. It is geared around Family and Kids with a low entry fee of just $25 per boat and the first 100 kids will get a free zebco combo or telescoping pole and some tackle as well. You can also put as many anglers per boat as the coast guard sticker allows. If you haven’t come to one of our events in the past you really need to at least come by, have a hot dog and observe all these kids having the time of their life!!We have “many” great sponsors again this year so the payout is bigger than originally advertised and we will also have many other prizes to give away. 100% of all proceeds from this event will be donated to Everyday Blessings Children’s Home & South Sumter FFA Alumni. You can visit Pana Vista Lodge facebook page as well as Big & Wild facebook page for details and can also call us at 352-793-2061 to register or for any questions.
