Here is your South Florida Bass Fishing Update:
Captain Joe had the pleasure of bass fishing with Steve Matera for three days. Steve was traveling from Iowa looking to explore the waters of South Florida. His goal was to catch largemouth bass and peacock bass while on a visit. The first destination Captain Joe adventured out with Steve was on the Miami Airport Lakes. This is a fantastic fishery for peacock bass.
It did not take long for Steve to get hooked into his desired fish. When you explore Airport Lakes, you do not have to go far and wait long to catch peacock bass. Steve caught his within the first 10 minutes of the fishing trip. The bucket list trip was accomplished and the rest of the time was a lot of fun for Steve.
Fishing conditions were not ideal for peacock bass fishing but that did not stop the bass from biting. Temperatures on this fishing trip were at about 70 degrees with strong winds coming out of the east. Steve caught 7 peacock bass and 3 largemouth bass in his quick 4-hour fishing trip.
Steve’s next adventure with Captain Joe takes them to the Everglades along Alligator Alley. The Everglades is one of the TOP BASS FISHING DESTINATIONS in Florida. You truly can’t beat the action for largemouth bass with artificial lures. Steve went out in the glades throwing soft plastic worms, topwater baits, jerk baits, and much more.
The action was fantastic with over 33 largemouth bass in the boat. Conditions were perfect for most of the trip until the thunderstorms rolled in. As well, one of our many Florida cold fronts was rolling in but that did not stop the bass from biting strong.
Finally, we come to the last and best day on the water with Steve. Captain Joe took Steve back out to the Everglades for an artificial fishing slugfest. It was non-stop action from the first cast. Steve put over 135
Florida bass in the boat. This is one of the main reasons that this fishery is one of BEST FISHING LAKES IN 2019. Every bass on this trip was caught on artificial baits from soft plastic worms to top waters. The biggest bass on this trip weighed in at 5 pounds 4 ounces.
Steve had a fantastic time fishing with Captain Joe. Next year, he will be back for more incredible fishing action. Captain Joe is looking forward to their next fishing adventure!
If you are looking for the most amazing time to come fishing in Florida, NOW is the time. The bass are biting and as the weather gets warmer, the more they will bite. Don’t miss out on your adventure in South Florida. Bring your friends, family, or loved ones along for a fishing excursion of a lifetime. We look forward to seeing you on the water next time!
