To protect Wohlford from invasive exotic Quagga mussels, there is still a ban on private water craft and equipment that could have been exposed to mussels. Restricted equipment includes private boats, canoes, kayaks, float tubes, trolling motors, fish finders, anchors, and other equipment that contacts the water.
Lake Wohlford is offering $20 all day motor boats to seniors on Tuesdays and Thursdays and to active military on the first and third Saturdays of each month.
Just one week left until the final catfish plant of the summer. Catfish are being caught throughout the lake. Lake Wohlford cats prefer cut mackerel or chicken liver. Stop by the ranger station for a dough-bait recipe that works wonders on catfish, as well as carp.
The morning bass bite was strong particularly in the early part of the week. Taylor Gomez of the U.S.S. Erie stationed at the 32nd st. Naval Base caught & released a 10.95# bass on a plastic salamander fishing from a boat east of Senior Shoreline. The bite is strongest in the early morning and late afternoon. Frogs, crawdads, and dark colored plastics are currently the best baits.
Crappie prefer the cover of shade and are most often caught using live golden shiners or mini-jigs.
Each month Whopper Contest winners in four categories are awarded a free fishing and boating permit. For information on the contest or fishing conditions, please contact the Ranger Station at (760) 839-4346.
