THIS TIME OF YEAR…HOT WATER DISCHARGE CANAL

December 29, 2009

A Yankee Town, Florida Fishing Report from Yankeetown Florida Fishing Guide Captain Nick Sorry its been so long since we’ve posted a the salt water fishing report. Honestly, there’s only been a few days that we could have possibly gotten out due to the weather, and the Largemouths have started their pre spawn feeding frenzy which has kept us very busy. I have had several reports that the Redfish, Trout, and several other species have moved well inside, especially in the early morning hours. This time of year I would recommend trying the Hot Water Discharge Canal at the Progress Energy […]

The Spawn Is On!

December 23, 2009

Bass fishing on the Ocklawaha River has been exceptional throughout December, thanks to the first spawning period of the season. Although we are not catching big numbers of fish, the ones we are catching have been Trophies. You might ask just how exceptional is the Bass fishing?

A Steinhatchee Fishing Report For & Big Bend Die Hards

December 7, 2009

This Steinhatchee Fishing Report is from Steinhatchee Fishing Guide Captain Steve Kroll This report is for die-hards, because that is the only people going or wanting to go fishing. The weather has been a major factor for the last couple of weeks. We have lost some charter business as a result. However, when I could get out, I was able to find some real nice Trout. If you follow my reports, you know cold water and low tides mean pothole fishing. Slow fishing jigs, slow sinking plugs, and of course shrimp or cut bait, will catch fish in the holes. […]
