The last few days has seen some really good action out on Lake Jackson. The lily pad fields have really thinned out in a big way since the state sprayed them and this has opened up a few more areas for us to bass fish. Hydrilla is still very healthy out here and so are the bass.
option for keeping the bass fishing action steady and the guys have been landing some trophy bass as well. Wild shiners have been working best free lined and tossed right to the edges of the lily pads. This is a pattern that has been holding steady now for over a month, and has made many clients very happy.
Tom came back once again, along with good friend Frank and they had a blast out here. Between the two of them they boated right about 20 bass in six hours, along with 2 nice catfish and a huge bowfin. The bass the guys were catching were running from school sized bass to the big gal which was just over 7 pounds. Mix in three bass at an easy five pounds a pop, that makes for one great day of Bass Fishing in Florida!
The remainder of the week saw the same steady action out on Lake Jackson. Live bait was the definite way to go to catch good numbers of bass along with the size. We have been seeing more and more bass beds showing up as the big gals are getting very close to spawning now. Cooler weather has triggered a great bite for us that has remained steady. More cooler weather is on top to close out the month of December and we fully expect the bite to remain strong as we get geared up for the 2011 Florida Bass Fishing Season.
