Default Medford Reservoir Florida Sunshine Bass

The species called the "Sunshine Bass"does best in chilly water like the current water temps of the 50's and the 60's. This is prime time for these lure eating torpedoes.
The FFWCC stocks about 1 million sunshines per year in lakes around the state. One of the best spots anywhere happens to be in Hillsborough County; Medard Reservoir, southeast of Brandon, gets 70,000 per year. The 700-acre lake is rated one of the top 10 spots in the state for catching sunshines.
Other recommended spots include the St. Johns River, which also boasts lots of adult stripers of 10 to 15 pounds, the Ocklockonee River and its headwaters at Lake Talquin near Tallahassee, and the Apalachicola River below Woodard Dam, definitely the best spot in the state for sunshines, stripers and whites - state records for all three species came from this area.
The limit is 20 per day, to include no more than six over 24 inches. Medard Reservoir is located off Turkey Creek Road, south of State Road 60 in eastern Hillsborough County.

Have you ever fished the St. Johns, around Jacksonville, for stripers?
