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. Florida Black Bass limits, 5 fish only 1 may be 16”or longer in total length. Crappie that are less than 10 inches in total length must be released immediately.
