June Saltwater Forecast Overview
As peak fishing season arrives in Florida, the state sees an influx of visitors eager to take advantage of the weather, beaches, and fishing opportunities. To ensure a successful trip, it's recommended to book your charters and accommodations early, as the Red Snapper season opener quickly fills up charters in the Gulf.
From Marco Island to Pensacola, the excitement for Red Snapper is palpable. Reef fishing also offers a wealth of options, including Groupers, Kingfish, and more. The Keys offer a diverse range of fishing opportunities, with inshore, reef, and offshore fishing all at its prime.
On the East Coast, Amberjack and Cobia make for a thrilling bottom fishing adventure, while Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel attract those looking to troll. The shallow waters of the Intracoastal Waterway are a great place for families to teach their children how to fish, while Catfish and Bluegill in Lake Okeechobee, Lake Harris, and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes offer freshwater fishing opportunities.
June Freshwater Forecast Overview
Despite popular belief, June is not the end of the bass fishing season here in Florida. The early hours of the day can still offer great opportunities for catching bass using live wild shiners. As temperatures rise, the bite might become more inconsistent, but with precise casting techniques you can still land some largemouth bass in the heat.
Lake Toho, which is renowned for its trophy bass, can still offer fantastic fishing opportunities, even during the summer months. Techniques such as flipping and pitching can be particularly effective. During the hot hours of the day, focus on fishing near grass beds and floating mats. Ideal baits for this time include creature baits and tube baits.
Additionally, areas with deep waters and submerged hydrilla can also be great spots to catch bass. Slow rolling spinner baits, shallow running crank baits, and ten-inch worms are excellent choices to keep the action going in these open water areas.
