Crossroads Restaurant came into Carolyn and David Douglas’ family in 1991. Since then Crossroads has become a family affair with daughters Melody, Carolyn, Daughter-in- law Sandy and Granddaughters Michelle and Katie all working in the restaurant. Crossroads serves down home Southern cooking like “Granny” used to cook and today you will find Carolyn aka “Granny” still overseeing the operations. Crossroads is open 7 days a week, Monday through Saturday 5:30 am to 2:30 pm and Sundays 7:00 am to 2:30 pm. There is a lunch buffet overflowing with delicious down home cooking and to satisfy your sweet-tooth you will find the most scrumptious homemade desserts as well. So as you enter Crossroads, feel truly blessed, for not only is the food prayed for as it’s prepared, but the restaurant and all those who enter are as well.

Speck fishing is starting to pick up, anglers are finding

large numbers of speck willing to eat either a jig or a min now during the dark hours. Government cut and the area around Taylor Creek lock are both producing. Most of the specks are still running on the small side although reports of limits of larger speck are starting to filter in. Many of the fish can be found well off of the grass lines holding on the bottom on weedy cover or other available cover. The Kissimmee River is yielding some decent sized speck to anglers jigging around the weir in the moving water. Bass fishing is very good we have had quite a few days with very high winds when cold fronts have moved through and the heavy winds make it difficult to easily fish your favorite areas. Sometimes the wind can dictate where you can fish which does not always equate to great catching. Shiner fishing is going along well with big bass falling prey to a wild golden shiner almost daily. Fish to 9 pounds can be found staging around points and heavy cover areas, the fish are moving quite a big and seem to be following the schools of shad which they are feeding heavily on. — Cpt.
