The Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River has been outstanding throughout February. Recently our half day trips have averaged over a dozen 2 to 5 pound Bass per angler, with the occasional 7 to 9 pound wallhanger!
I expect these numbers to decrease when the spawning fish move onto the beds. Speaking of spawning Bass, don’t forget to practice catch and release as much as possible. It’s the best way to ensure next years catch. Pictured below are some of our most recent clients doing just that.
Bass fishing on the Ocklawaha River is alive and well. Our last few trips have produced big numbers of quality fish as well as several lunkers over 5 lbs.. Expect the numbers to improve as we approach the first spawning period of the season.
The Largemouth regulations have changed this year. The catch limit is the same (5), but only 1 over 16 inches. Contact MYFWC.COM for any additional information.
