Recently Bass fishing on the middle Ocklawaha River has been fair, although the best bite has been limited to a couple of hours early and late in the day. Accordingly our most productive trips typically happen on very overcast days. Must be summertime.
Wild shiners fished as far as possible under cover (vegetation) has been the most productive, and remains to be your best bet for trophy sized Largemouths. One of the best locations in our region for fishing heavy cover is the Cypress Bayou/Rodman Reservoir area. Water lilies, cabbage, and hyacinths abound in this region and are a prime location for Largemouths, especially in the heat of the day.
When you are fishing on these hot summer days, and you find yourself seeking the shade, remember fish like shade too!
Until next time … see you on the River!
