Suwannee Lake

Details

Location:
Live Oak, FL
United States United States
Coordinates:
30.3007, -82.9305
Distance:
63 Acres
Description:

This 63-acre man-made, state-owned impoundment is filled with cypress trees and largemouth bass. It is a Fish Management Area and a license is required. Two fishing piers, one fully handicapped accessible, and several earthen fishing fingers provide boatless angling opportunities.

Aquatic vegetation:

The lake is shallow around the edge with good vegetative cover.

Cover/Structure:

There are several old sink-holes out in the trees providing deep cover. There is plenty of submerged timber and standing cypress.

Tips/Tactics:

Perennial tactics, depending on the season, include pitching jigs and spinners up into "no-man's land"--the brush around the edge, shiner fishing in winter and very early spring, cranking shiner imitators between the trees, and fishing topwater lures and dark plastic worms anywhere. Good fishing for bluegill and redear sunfish occurs during spring and summer.

Special harvest regulations are in place on Suwannee Lake. Minimum size limits of 10 inches for crappie and 18 inches for largemouth bass allow more fish to grow to desirable sizes.
