Over the last two weeks we’ve had several fishing trips to Ocklawaha and tours of the Silver Rivers. The Bass bite has been good although limited to a few hours each day, early morning and late afternoon.

Some of our most recent clients have taken advantage of our Two River Special and done very well. Typically we shove off by 7 a.m., fish for a couple of hours, then tour the Silver River until about noon. This is an ideal trip for those who want to have some fun without breaking a sweat.

Recently we’ve caught lots of fish, but only a few Largemouths over 4 lbs.. Plenty of Pike (Chain Pickerel) and Garfish to keep you busy between the Bass.

Pictured below is Alexis (11) showing off a couple of early morning Bass.

Until next time…see you on the River!

Good Luck
Captain Nick

The peace and quiet of the river, the cast of the rod, the strike, and the sound of your voice saying,

"I Got One",

ringing across the water and into the forest.

    I went to the website to see Alexis picture and was suprised that you used her in the fishing report, too!! I want to leave a comment about our experience for others to see!! I also want to let others know what a great time we had and that we will be back again, soon, for another trip and to let others know how great you were with teaching my daughter how to fish!!

    Thanks, for the great experience and we will be back soon!! Michelle

  • Just a note from an employee at Silver River State Park – the entire length of Silver River is off-limits for fishing.

      Thanks for the comment DW

      Yes, the Silver River, in Fl is off-limits for fishing. I guess when Captain Nick said “we’ve had several fishing trips and tours of the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers” that that can lead to to a bit of confusion.

      But he gave “tours of the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers” He also said “Some of our most recent clients have taken advantage of our Two River Special …….. fish for a couple of hours, “then” tour the Silver River until about noon.”

      In fact Captain Nick held off of the following article so no one would fish in the Silver River when they had a chance.

      When it comes to bass and most species Captain Nick is catch and release.
