What the mission was for!

August 27, 2009

What Are Friends For? To Go Fishing With! Hey Everyone, Mother Nature has been very nice to us offshore anglers lately, and she has allowed me to roam to some of my deep water haunts. This trip was with some good friends of mine and their family. Russ did a complete over haul on the motor on my little truck and would not take any money for it, but asked if I would take him and some family members offshore fishing for the day. They had a great time and put a lot of fish in the boat of all […]

God Still Favors The Early Bird! We fished the Ocklawaha River near Ocala Thursday, August 6, for Largemouths and did pretty fair especially for August. Managed to get an early start, about 6:30 a.m., and caught and released about a dozen nice Bass by 10 a.m., two of which were over 5 lbs. Had to contend with lots of schoolers (small yearling Bass) killing our bait, but the action was non-stop up until about 11 a.m. . The sun rose, and the bite was over. Glad we were in the right place at the right time….EARLY This Ocklawaha Fishing Report […]
