Central Florida Bass Fishing

Capt. Tim Fey
January 5, 2011
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

What can I say folks, with wild shiners in tow the Polley father and son team banged some serious bass out on Lake Jackson. They come down from Canada and Dan gave his dad a Christmas present of Florida Bass Fishing. The bass definitely did not let these two guys down as we had a steady bite all day long.

For the most part the bass were slow to commit to our offerings of wild shiners, just mouthing the baits and swimming some with them before really taking them.

This meant patience once again on our part, but the guys got their hook ups and boated well over 20 bass for the day.

When the live bait ran out, we switched up to some artificial baits landing a few more bass, with several missed bass, as the bass we located were deep in the slop in very shallow water. We started the day out fishing in four to six foot of water with live bait, and ended it in under a foot of water, casting to basically just inches of water where the bass were chasing bait fish around.

The guys had a great day on the water and had a blast catching some great Florida largemouth bass. Nothing better than seeing a father son team enjoying some quality time on the water together.

Target Species:

largemouth bass
