Lake Placid and Lake Francis are two lakes that you want to be fishing right now. Lake Francis is producing 25 to 30 fish per trip with very little difficulty locating them. Fish in 4- to 7-foot water depths anywhere there is a grassy bottom. Use a Junebug trick worm with a 3⁄16 bullet weight and you should light them up.

On Lake Placid the bigger fish are on the tree piles. When fishing these, use a drop shot or Carolina rig with a 10-inch worm — June bug and watermelon red are good colors.
