The Largemouth Bass bite on the Ocklawaha River continues. Although the quantity of fish we typically catch has dropped, the quality has improved.
On our most recent trip one of my clients landed a “Lunker Largemouth” on his first cast that tipped the scales to 8 lbs.! Not bad for November.
Recently the majority of Bass we’ve caught have been 4 to 6 lbs., and fat with roe. These are spawning Largemouths about to go on the bed. They should be handled with care and released.
Early morning continues to be the best time to fish, and as always, wild shiners are the best bait.
Pictured below is one of our most recent clients showing off his catch.
