Fishing Leon Brooks

on October 16th

Bass fishing good year-round, with the biggest usually caught from February through April when they are near the bank. Some very big largemouth bass have been taken from Escambia County Lake. Bluegill and redear sunfish are caught by bank and boat anglers from spring through summer. The April/May 2010 In-Fisherman magazine listed this lake as a place to catch bluegill over two pounds. Catfish are caught year-round, but the summer months are best.
