Guide To Fishing At Lake Weir
AKA: Carney Island Recreation Area
Fishing for largemouth bass, black crappie, bluegill and redear sunfish at Lake Weir in Florida.
A nice place to vacation, ideal for boat parties and an excellent destination for quality fishing, Lake Weir is the place to be. This is a 5,700-acre lake located in the middle-western part of the state, at Ocklawaha.
Giant bass and fat crappie are the primary targets here, plus there is good fishing for bluegill and sunfish. The lake is wrapped in about fifteen miles of shoreline, much of which is developed with homes and boat docks, while some areas are sandy beaches with vegetation. Boating access is via Carney Island Boat Ramp which is mid lake on the west side, at Carney Island Recreation Area on the northwest corner, and Hope Boat Ramps in the southwest corner of the lake.
