Yes, you guessed it…this is the honeymoon couple back for another try. Leaving tomorrow to go back to Brazil after several weeks in Florida. Alex wanted one more chance at catching these South Florida bass in the Everglades.
After taking a week in the Orlando area, they were back in the Miami area and could not resist fishing again after our last trip. The difference in this trip verses the last one, was he purchased several new rod & reel combos while in Orlando at the Bass Pro Shops and really wanted to break them in on some of these Everglades large-mouth bass.
Loaded with 6 and 8 lb test line and extremely ultra lite travel rods, I wasn’t sure my heart was up to this kind if excitment. Seems Alex, took little to no neglect to all the lilly pads. Alex got in the zone and started to boat bass after bass on his new rod & reel combo.
Different then our last trip which was on a Tuesday, this time it was a Saturday during a bass fishing tournament day. So, to say the least there was a lot of pressure on these fish today. Several people reported tough fishing for that day, but I am happy to report Alex and his ultra lite equipment boated over 60 bass all by himself. As you can see in the posted picture he had several good quality bass in the 3 to 4lb range and a chance at one lunker which the ultra lite equipment just could not hold up too.
It was a great day and in Alex’s own words, “This was the best fishing day of my life.”
I look forward to talking fishing with all of you!
