Located just west of Tallahassee, this 8,800 acre reservoir is nationally known for its high quality black crappie (speckled perch) fishery. The best crappie fishing occurs in winter months (January through April) during the prespawn and spawning period. There is very little vegetation, but lots of tree stumps and logs. At certain times of year largemouth bass, bluegill, redear, white bass, and striped bass fishing are excellent. Lake Talquin, for a Florida lake, is deep with an average depth of 15 feet and a maximum depth of 40 feet. There are 7 public boat ramps and 5 public fishing piers on the Leon County side of the lake (Hwy 20). On the Gadsden County side, there are 3 public boat ramps and 2 public fishing piers. Six fish camps surround the lake. For additional information you may contact Whipporwill Sportman's Lodge at 850-875-2605. All black bass that are less than 18 inches in total length and crappie that are less than 10 inches in total length must be released immediately.
Welcome to Lake Cumberland, one of the largest man-made lakes in the nation! Lake Cumberland was formed in the 1950s, when a large section of the Cumberland River was dammed. Built by the Corp of Engineers, the lake is 110 miles long and has an average depth of 90 feet. There are 9 marinas on the lake, with 2 located in Pulaski County, offering plenty of adventure, great coves and spectacular fishing opportunities. Our lake is surrounded by high cliffs where people build their dream homes. A Corp property line prevents houses and businesses being built directly along the water’s edge. When on the lake, you can see a few houses, but the cliffs and shoreline of the lake are clean and undisturbed, with plenty of trees, great fishing spots, wonderful waterfalls and coves, some of which during the summer, may be occupied with houseboats. Today, we invite you to discover 1,255 miles of shoreline fun at one of America's finest vacation destinations. Throughout the years, the more than 52,000 acres (at summer pool) of Lake Cumberland have become a favorite vacation and recreation spot for millions of visitors, in fact more visitors than at Yellowstone National Park.
