Today, I took out Stephen Knickerbocker from San Jose, California for a 6 hour live bait / artificial fishing trip on the Butler Chain of Lakes who has been anxious to come to Florida to go fishing and today although a little slow the final tally was 16 nice fish all over 4 pounds except 2 and had 3 over 6 pounds we did lose a fish that may have been 8 or 9 pounds right at the boat, it just saw us and bolted and broke the 20lb test big game (in a snap!)
Toward the end of the trip we decided to put 4 in the live-well for a group picture (of the fish) so I had to hustle and in the last 30 minutes we caught 3 nice fish that were the average size and one of the 2 small fish that we caught, too bad that it was a 2 pounder and not another 4 or 5. We had a great day otherwise. The fishing has been phenomenal for the past several weeks and with it warming up it will only get better.
Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
