The Largemouth Bass bite on Central Florida’s Ocklawaha River has been good throughout the month of November. We’ve consistently caught limits of “keeper” fish, typically between 3 and 5 lbs., with the occasional 7 to 9 lb. lunker.
Several of the Bass we’ve caught and released over the past few weeks were fat with roe. A good sign that our first spawn of the season is not far off. I’ve also spotted several beds with just the male fish present. Expect these pre-spawn Largemouth to really turn on sometime in December.
Some of the best Largemouth Bass fishing in the world takes place right here in Central Florida. The Ocklawaha River from Ocala to the Rodman Reservoir produces more “Trophy Bass” per square mile of water than anywhere I’ve ever fished. Although you might not catch 100 fish in one day, it’s your best bet for that “Bass of a lifetime”.
Until next time…see you on the River!
