Largemouth Bite Has Returned To Normal

January 26, 2018

The Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River has finally returned to normal. After several months of adverse conditions caused mostly by Hurricane Irma, fishing in general has bounced back to where it should be. Over the past few months extreme high water levels, as well as flow, have made it next to impossible to fish the River.

The Ocklawaha River Is Having An Outstanding February

February 20, 2017

The Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River has been outstanding throughout February.

I expect these numbers to decrease when the spawning fish move onto the beds. Speaking of spawning Bass, don’t forget to practice catch and release as much as possible. It’s the best way to ensure next years catch. Pictured below are some of our most recent clients doing just that. Until next time, see you on the River! Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain […]
