Over the past week or so, we’ve had several trips that netted good numbers of huge Ocklawaha River Largemouths. Many of the Bass caught recently have been over 5 lbs..
On Saturday afternoon, I had the pleasure of taking Kevin C., and his sons Mason (11) and Konnor (13), on one of our Sunrise/Sunset Special Bass Charters. These trips are only 2 hours in duration, and depart the dock either very early in the a.m., or late in the afternoon. An excellent choice for our young anglers. Kevin informed me before the trip that neither he nor the kids had much experience fishing. I think he was pulling my leg.
They fished from 3 to 5 p.m., and wound up catching and releasing 7 Largemouths. Total weight-35 lbs.! To top it off, each one had hauled in a Tophy Largemouth weighing nearly 8 lbs.. Way to go guys! I live to see these young guns get their first Bass.
Wednesday (10/26) we had similar results while fishing with Bill Andrews, Mike, and Hully. Again Bill caught and released the fish of the day, a huge Ocklawaha Largemouth tipping the scales at nearly 9 pounds. Thanks guys, hope to see you again soon.
Yes, fishing is good and the wall hangers are schooling up. Check out the pics!
Until next time…see you on the River!
