Central Florida Bass Fishing

Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today was a run out on Lake Jackson with the Seeger clan. Plan was to start the day out with wild shiners and then start tossing some soft plastics around going after some big bass. First spot we hit was an area that had been producing some good quality bass for us on past trips. Well the bite in that area had slowed to a crawl for us, so we made our move to what I call the back 40 and the bass started to bite.
In no time at all we burned through four dozen shiners with everyone catching bass and having a blast. It was no stop entertainment out here with the jokes flying around and everyone setting hooks on some nice bass. We did get the total mix today with some very big bowfin and a couple chain pickerel also being caught.
Once the winds started to pick up we headed deeper into the shallows and worked some soft plastics, mostly Yum Dingers to catch a couple more bass which were hanging tight to cover.
The day was made very easy for myself with the Dig In Anchor, as all I had to do was set the anchor and bait the hooks for everyone. Nothing better than a great day on the water and Jim and his family made the day very entertaining and kept me pretty busy netting all the bass they were catching.
