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.
