    Default Lake Dias 8/3/18

    New member here from Minnesota that just got a little fishing rig registered in FL. My in-laws are in DeLand and my maiden voyage was trying Dias for a couple hours. Got a healthy 13Ē fish on a minnow in 14 fow about 7 feet under a float within 10 minutes. Had to drift fish as I didnít have time to charge my trolling battery and didnít have any more luck before the heat chased me off. Iíll need to learn some of the FL techniques as Iím used to single pole regulation of Minnesota. Name:  IMG_4487.jpg
Views: 196
Size:  75.7 KBNice lake and Iíll try it again when Iím in FL late September.

    Nice fish. But there's times, especially in the summer in Florida, when they are scattered and picking up one here, one there is just a fact of life.

    Thanks Tom. I figured they'd be suspended in deeper water and spread out. I had a terrible spring/summer to date in MN so I was happy with the potential. I'll try some multiple line trolling next go round. Woodruff, Beresford and Monroe will also be in play.

    You're on the right track. If you run the rods out the side, longer rods help. I use 6, 9, and 12' and rod holders that have sides and the rod can't be twisted when a catfish or bass hits. They aren't created equal. I use the Hi-Tek Extreme model and am very satisfied. A couple out the back and 2 or 3 out each side and you'll look like a seasoned pro. Welcome from Debary, looking forward to your future posts.

    I have fond memories of Dias. It was a long drive from Ocala where I once lived so I didn't go there a lot but when I did make the drive, it was worth it. Follow Skeet's advice you'll never go wrong. One slab is good in the heat. Nice catch!

    Nice fish. A 13" Crappie is a good one, any time and any where. Look forward to seeing on the water. Come on down for our SlabFest in October.
