The Pre-spawn Bite is Expected To Kick-off Soon

November 19, 2014

Bass fishing on the Ocklawaha River near Ocala has been fairly consistent over the past month or so. Plenty of bites, although most have been from schooling “buck Bass” getting ready for our first spawning period of the season. I expect our first good pre-spawn bite to kick-off very soon, most likely around the first of December. Look for the size and number of Largemouth bass to improve as we approach 2015. Until next time, see you on the River! Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick Bozman This Ocklawaha Fishing Report Is From Ocala Florida Bass Fishing Guide Captain Nick Of […]

The Tackle Boxes Fishing Report

October 20, 2009

10-20-09 The strongest cold front of the fall season probably brought big changes to the fresh and salt water fishing landscape in North Florida . We say “probably” since the wind that accompanied the chill was sufficiently strong to keep most would-be anglers at home—greatly reducing the weekend reports that could have confirmed our speculation. We do have one “before” and “after” catch comparison from a small area lake. But, since each was fairly impressive, we can’t yet say that the cold really changed things—at least for speckled perch fans. Friday, just ahead of the front, George Dekle and Larry […]

The Heat Is On .. and So Are The Bass

July 6, 2009

This Ocklawaha Fishing Report From Ocklawaha Fishing Guide Captain Nick THE HEAT IS ON…AND SO ARE THE BASS I’ve been fishing the Oklawaha River since 1982 and can’t remember the Bass fishing ever being so good in the months of June and July. Typically this time of year the bite slows for one reason or the other, but not this year. Also, I’ve been getting reports of huge Specs (Crappie) being caught on Lake Lochloosa (Orange Lake).  Unheard of for this time of year.  Guess that just goes to show! Expect the Stripers to start running up the spring fed […]
