Early Morning Bite Beats The Heat

Over the last two weeks we’ve had several fishing trips to Ocklawaha and tours of the Silver Rivers. The Bass bite has been good although limited to a few hours each day, early morning and late afternoon.

Some of our most recent clients have taken advantage of our Two River Special and done very well. Typically we shove off by 7 a.m., fish for a couple of hours, then tour the Silver River until about noon. This is an ideal trip for those who want to have some fun without breaking a sweat.

Recently we’ve caught lots of fish, but only a few Largemouths over 4 lbs.. Plenty of Pike (Chain Pickerel) and Garfish to keep you busy between the Bass.

Pictured below is Alexis (11) showing off a couple of early morning Bass.

Until next time…see you on the River!

Good Luck

And The Bite Goes On … And The Bite Goes On

The Largemouth bite that is. So far we’ve had a great pre-spawn Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River. Over the past several weeks, I’ve concentrated on the area between the confluence, near Ocala, where the Silver River flows into the Ocklawaha, and Gores Landing just south of Ft. McCoy, with excellent results.

Since Christmas, we have landed several Largemouths over ten pounds, with the average fish weighing about 4 pounds. Not bad, huh?

I expect this great bite to continue up until the Bass go on the “bed”, around our next full moon, Jan. 30th. My recommendation is to get ’em while the getting is good.

Below, Jason Worth (of Ocala) shows off the 10 lb. “football” he caught and released on Dec. 30th. Not many people can say they’ve ever caught much less released a Bass like that. That’s the mark of a true sportsman.

Remember God Loves A Fisherman
Good Luck

The Bass are Back In Town

Limits of keeper Bass continue to be caught on the Oklawaha River in the Ocala National Forest, although getting to them can be a little tricky.

Recently we fished an old haunt of mine about halfway between Gores Landing and the Silver River confluence, but it took some fancy maneuvering to get there…lots of fallen trees and snags.
 
The man upstairs came through again and answered our prayers for rain. No doubt it will improve the fishing, as well as other things.
 
Call me an incurable optimist, but I think things are looking up. The fish are biting, gas is cheaper than this time last year, and we all woke up this morning…Count your blessings….
