It’s All About The Numbers

This Ocklawaha Fishing Report From Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick The number of Bass we’ve recently caught on the Ocklawaha River per trip is down compared to last year at this time, but the size is definitely up. I pre-fished a couple of spots on Monday, 11/22, for an upcoming trip and ended up with a 4, 7, and 8 lb. Bass. Not bad for less than 2 hours of fishing. Although the last 10 lb. Largemouth Bass a client caught was Sept. 28, we’ve managed to get a 5 lb. Bass or better on every trip since. Recently we’ve […]

Grouper, Alive and Well In The Gulf of Mexico

November 24, 2009

A Yankee Town, Florida Fishing Report from Yankeetown Florida Fishing Guide Captain Nick Last Wednesday, November 18, one of my fishing partners and I ran about 30 miles off the Crystal River coast to check out the Grouper bite.

Two “fat” Red Grouper, 19 inches long…..close but no cigar. Looked like it was going to be a good day, but we had our work cut […]

Captain Nick Says Endeaver to Perservere

November 11, 2009

“Endeavor to Persevere” I’ve had several bass trips on the Ocklawaha River over the past couple of weeks, and fortunately we have been able to find the fish. The water level between the dams at Moss Bluff (south of Ocala) and Rodman is very low, which means we now have to cover more territory to find the same numbers of fish than just a few months ago. We’ve averaged about a dozen Bass per half day trip between 2 and 6 lbs. throughout October. Not great, but not bad considering. We just missed our chance at getting some much needed […]

Things Are Where They Should Be.

November 11, 2009

 This Steinhatchee Fishing Report is from Steinhatchee Fishing Guide Captain Steve Kroll In the house for a couple days watching rain from IDA leftovers. But?last week we had some great fishing, in spite of negative low tides and NE wind. Water temps are in the 60’s, where they should be this time of year. Shallow Trout are bigger than the more numerous deep flat Trout. The 6-10 grass flats are also producing very large Spanish Mackerel, some Sandtrout, big Bluefish and giant Redfish. Thanks for checking in. GOD Bless and Good Fishing Captain STEVE KROLL
