 The 2006 BASSMaster Classic was won by Luke Clausen, a 27-year oldAnother great group fishing trip on Lake Kissimmee professional from Spokane Valley, Wash., jumped to the lead with a Bassmaster Classic one-day catch record of 29 pounds, six ounces. He staked himself to nearly a five-pound lead on Day Two and facing hellish weather conditions Sunday on Lake Kissimmee, held off the field with a five-fish limit that weighed 11-13.

 Clausen's consistent performance resulted in a record three-day total of 56pounds, two ounces all while fishing on Lake Kissimmee, and earned him victory in the 36th annual Classic. He also pocketed the $500,000 first prize that accompanies the win.

Lake Kissimmee is a 34,948-acre lake located 40 miles south of Orlando and 18 miles east of Lake Wales. Late spring/early summer can be a good time to enjoy some outstanding success while fishing for bass on Lake Kissimmee. Warmer water temperatures during this period will help increase bass foraging activity which should relate to good fishing. Likely places for anglers to try their luck will be the south shore of Brahma Island, native vegetation communities (knotgrass, maidencane, lily-pads and bulrush) around 7-Palms in North Cove, Philadelphia Point, Lemon Point and around the mouth of Tiger Cove. Live bait (golden shiners) fished in these areas should account for some good action. For anglers who prefer to do battle with artificial lures, a wide variety of baits will produce some enjoyable days on the water. Spinnerbaits with white, yellow or chartreuse skirts are reliable baits to use during this time of year. Along with spinnerbaits, lip-less crankbaits (chrome or bone-colored with rattles), soft-bodied jerkbaits (grass and Arkansas shiner colored), minnow-type and top-water propeller lures are proven baits for bass. Baitfish (shad) will be congregating in open-water during the period and will undoubtedly have bass in and around these baitfish schools looking for a quick meal. Throwing lip-less crankbaits through these baitfish schools can produce some fast and furious action.

Sunrise as well, sunset on Lake Kissimmee Spawning activity by panfish, especially bluegill will get into full swing during these months. Typically, anglers try to plan their trips to coincide with the full and new moon phases when fish are more congregated in shallow water. If clear water conditions prevail, groups of small depressions in the sandy bottom in shallow water can be found which indicate bedding activity by these fish. Live bait (crickets or red wigglers) fished on the bottom (split-shot sinker placed 5-6 inches above the bait) will account for many good stringers and exciting days on the water. Anglers typically have good success fishing in the lily-pads on the southwest ends of Brahma and Bird Islands and along the shoreline bordering the Kissimmee River State Park.

There are quite a few fish
certainly 10-pound and above however most bass caught will vary from two to five pounds, with a liberal number of five to seven pounders mixed in for good measure. A particularly pleasing bonus for those fishing here is the impressive number and size of chain pickerel. Others pluses include copious and healthy black crappie, bluegill, shellcracker and catfish. The roster of forage fish encompass the shiner, shad, killifish, silversides and glass minnows. Grass shrimp and eels also contribute to a varied gamefish menu.

Those who enjoy wildlife frequently see eagles and ospreys, plus a wide variety of wading birds, alligators and, if lucky, a deer or wild turkey grazing on shore.

There are two great launching ramps onto Lake Kissimmee. One is located at the new end of the lake on the river at Camp Mack's fish camp or near the south end Grape Hammock Fish Camp , while the Kissimmee State Park launching ramp is in good condition, parking spaces are limited. 

Because the lake historically has enjoyed relative anonymity, Kissimmee is currently unpressured compared to Lake Toho. But, as word spreads through bass fishing circles, look for increased visitation.

 Central Florida offers not only Lake Toho which is the most popular lake of the Kissimmee Chain, but the fame Stick Marsh - Farm13 fishery as well as the trophy bass lake Walk in Water
