Fishing with a worm on bottom near the edge of the maidencane is a good way to start. If this fails, try moving into the weeds with a cane pole and fishing with grass shrimp. Fishing over the fish attractors in Lake Weir can also produce some bass, according to local anglers. In the hot summer months, many anglers prefer to fish at night. Try fishing over the attractors at night for bass.

Fishing on the brush attractors, marked by yellow buoys is the easiest and best way to catch crappie. The brush attractors are mostly in water between 15 and 25 feet deep. The best way to catch crappie is to use a minnow under a slip cork.

Lake Weir is a good choice to catch big panfish. The fish are typically in the maidencane, or on the edge of it. Fishing with a live worm on bottom near the edge of the maidencane is a good way to start. If this fails, try moving into the weeds with a cane pole and fishing with grass shrimp.
