baby bass fingerlingsIn the last few years, a dearth of water and abundance of vegetation turned Orange Lake from a great bass lake to a bass bust. Now with the recent rain to replenish the lake's basin, Wildlife Conservation Commission has just added 100,000 baby bass fingerlings to help make a turnaround. This time around, bass fishermen are hoping that the water will stick around for a long. Not every little bass will survive, some will end up in alligators bellies, also by other birds and fish. But the Wildlife Conservation Commission is pretty positive this will be enough fish to help start a thriving bass community again. Right now there is rules, were any bass between 15 and 24 inches must be released immediately. Most fishermen believe all the bass should be released, regardless of their size, to help Orange Lake make a comeback. I totally agree with him!
