Today, I had out bass fishing Tom Smith from New Jersey and one of his college buddies Shawn from Boston for a day of bass fishing in the Everglades. There were five of them down in the Ft Lauderdale area, basically they were partying and hanging out. So a couple of them decided to get out on the water, see a few alligators and catch some Florida bass. The wind was blowing around 15 to 20 mph so they were really glad they didn’t choose to go offshore saltwater fishing. They said, “man it would have been bad.” This is one of the nice things about South Florida freshwater fishing, it’s aways a good com day!
We decided to start out on one of my schooling bass spots, so even that these two were a little hung over still, we got them in the mode of catching bass right away with fast action. It was one after another for probably the first 45 minutes, oh yes…did I mention that it was all on top water. Once the action slowed we settled in and started throwing Everglades frogs, jerkbaits and plastics. Shawn was the hero today with a few fish just over 4 lbs, while Tom was the one at the end of the day to loose a trophy Florida largemouth bass that would have been in the 6 to 7lb range by the looks of her as she jumped to freedom.
This day produced 1 to 4 lb bass most all day, with the total being in the 50’s.
