First Time Shiner Fishing
North Florida is home to bodies of freshwater that hold Monster largemouth bass. It was going to be my clients First Time Shiner Fishing for Florida Bass.
Today, I had the pleasure to fish with John and his daughter Caitlyn. They are traveling from Murphyboro, Tennesee for the Bass fishing here in Florida.
We fished out of Lake Monroe in Sanford, Florida. It was a blast and the bass were biting early. We had up to 20 bass in the boat before 10 am. As the day went on the bass still began to bite.
The biggest bass weighed 6 pounds and we were catching cookie cutters until the end. This was their first time catching largemouth bass on shiners. Free-floating and the use of corks are effective methods to catching big bass around grass structures.
It surely was a great day out on the water. I am looking forward to their return back to Florida. The conditions are beautiful and supporting great trips out.
