Today I fished with old friends and long time clients, Corky & Sue from Coral Springs, FL.
We started out meeting at the tackle shop and off we went, after a few minutes catching up on old times and we were ready to start catching fish.
One of the great things about this couple is they just love being out in the Everglades, listing to the birds, taken pictures, and telling stories. Sue said, “We just love how you always take us to a different location and we always catch fish.”
After launching the boat and a nice little drive out to the fishing hole, we geared up for what we thought was going to be just another good fishing experience but ended up being so much more.
Then after getting a few corks out of Corky’s fishing pole, he hooked into what could have been the biggest bass of the day. An average hook set and several hard runs on the drag, this one was swimming for another day! Man you hate to see those get-a-way, but you can hardly beat the stories they create. After a few “oh my god” and a good laugh, back to fishing, we went.
Corky’s bait choice for the day was a JDC’s Gibroni. The weather was around 90, a bright blue bird with scattered clouds winds out of the west (Naples) area. Water temp around 78, overall a great day to be on the water.
Corky landed around 20 bass today, the three largest ones were 7.75, 7.25 & 5.65. Not a bad day considering we were back at the tackle shop by 1 pm.
If you’re in the area of Naples or Ft Lauderdale and would like to get out and experience Everglades bass fishing at it’s best!
Give me a call or email,
I look forward to talking fishing with you!
