Capt.  Grady Maynard discussed Bass fishing on Lake Griffin.  “It’s still hot and people are fishing grass out in the lake.”  He recommended fishing the attractors.  For big bass, he recommended big Texas-rigged worms, 12″, Red Shad or Watermelon Red.

Capt. Zach Slankard talked about fishing for Crappie.  “Crappie can be caught winter or summer, but peak time is the last week of December to the last week in January.”  He discussed using jigs and rigging practice.

A drawing was held for a guided Bass fishing trip with Capt. Maynard.  The winners were Art Hoover and Rich Grant.
