Check out this Trophy Bass Fishing Report from the St. Johns River in North Florida:
Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
“I had the ultimate pleasure of fishing with David while he was visiting North Florida. When doing so, we explored the St. Johns River and it showed him one amazing time. When you think about Florida bass fishing, this trip truly encompasses everything you can ask for. Solid numbers, great conditions, and trophy bass!
David started the day catching staging fish with wild-caught live shiners on shell bars. It was a blast for him to target these fish and land some decent numbers early in the day. As the trip progressed, we moved into the back canals where the fun really began.
David picked up some artificial baits and started pitching a creature bait around docks and shallow water structure. During this time, he caught several fish in the 3-5 pound range. While sight fishing and enjoying the bite with artificial lures, he also floated some live bait in the deeper water of the canal hoping to target migrating bass pulling into the canal to spawn.
This process landed David the fish of a lifetime. All of a sudden, a bass struck and sucked down one of the live baits. David waited until the right time, reeled down on this fish, and set the hook. When he did, the biggest bass of his life surfaced. This fish fought hard and gave him a fight he will never forget. It weighed in at 9 pounds 15 ounces. 1 ounce shy of 10 pounds.
Watching David land this fish and watch his face light up made for the ultimate day on the water. I am lucky to have been able to experience this with him and I know that he will be back for more action in the near future!”
Second trip of this update:
“Similarly to the last trip, the St. Johns River showed Bob and his wife a great time on the water. They did not cash in on any true trophy largemouth bass but had a fun time catching quality fish all trip long. While Bob and his wife were spending time in North Florida, a bass fishing trip was a great way for them to escape into the outdoors.
Water and air temperatures were on the rise on this fishing trip after a previous cold front moved in. During changes like such, we were able to find staging fish close to spawning flats and canals. Both live and artificial baits were productive on this fishing trip.
The larger fish caught on this trip weighing in at over 5 pounds were caught on beds. When targeting bedding fish, a creature bait like a lizard was very successful. Wild-shiners also helped land several beautiful North Florida largemouth bass. At the end of the day, they caught over 15 bass on their trip and could not have been happier.
Always glad to be a part of anglers fishing experiences and hope to see them back on the water soon!” – Captain Gino Losi

Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
First Trip of this Report:
“Artificial fishing on the Harris Chain can be a very productive way to catch largemouth bass. For those that love to fish with artificial baits, the Harris Chain is the place to visit!
I had the pleasure of fishing with David, who was staying in The Villages during the winter months of the year. While traveling from Canada, bass fishing and getting outdoors is always a must. All-weather conditions to him are better than what it is back home in Canada.
We adventured out on Lake Griffin in search of largemouth bass. The trip started out in the canals on both ends of the lake. Windy conditions made it ideal to start out in the canals and once it died down to move to several other hot spots. The bass are biting on both senkos and frogs in the back canals.
Once the wind died down, we moved offshore. Every upcoming moon phase and month from now until April-May, you will get bass in pre-spawn phases. The best way to target this bass is with crankbaits and speed worms on the deeper edges of the submerged hydrilla.
David had a blast catching bass all trip long on this fishing trip. He landed 30-40 largemouth bass on his full day trip. I am looking forward to fishing with him again soon!” – Captain Gino Losi
Second Trip of this Report
“After hard Central-North Florida cold fronts, the best thing we can get is some warm days. When this happens, especially when the largemouth bass spawn is in full effect, you can see some exceptional fishing.
I had the opportunity to go fishing with Dennis and his good friend. They wanted to come out and catch some Florida largemouth bass while traveling here on a visit. As a result, it was a fishing trip that neither of them would forget.
During the spawning months of the year, shallow water areas are prime for catching giant Florida largemouth bass. These canals create the perfect environment for bass to come in and make their beds. When this occurs, catching and releasing big bass is highly common especially on the Harris Chain of Lakes.
Dennis and his friend had an epic day on the water. Cruising into a back canal on Lake Griffin, they landed 2 trophy largemouth bass over 8 pounds. Several other bass weighed in at 6-7 pound range. Most of the larger females came off beds and then released so that they could finish their spawning process.
The most effective method to catch largemouth bass in this position is with live bait. Dennis and his friend also used artificial lures to pick off several nice bass. As the day progressed and the conditions got better, more females started moving into this canal.
These guys had an epic day on the water that every angler would dream of. I look forward to sharing another incredible moment like this again with them!” – Captain Gino Losi

Fishing with Captain Ken Walker
“Some trips can start out slow and end with a big bang. The Rodman Reservoir is one of those fisheries that you just can’t sleep on. Every cast, every take, and every bite could be the fish of your lifetime. It is the only place that you can consistently find giant Florida largemouth bass all year long.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Tim Jordan, who was traveling from North Florida to search down his new personal best. The Rodman Reservoir is one of his favorite places to do so. After having a slow start to the morning, the bite gradually picked up as the sun began to warm the surface of the water.
It was the second day of a cold front and I knew it was not going to be the most active day on the water. To my surprise, Rodman was not playing around on this fishing trip. The big bass were hungry and coming out to play.
Tim caught 8 beautiful largemouth bass on his fishing trip. One of those fish was his new personal best weighing in at a whopping 10 pounds 4 ounces. Giant trophy double digit largemouth bass are what you come to the Rodman Reservoir for.
I was excited to be part of this adventure. Tim put in some work and in the end got what he came for. I am looking forward to fishing with him again in the near future!
Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
“After many years of inconsistent fishing, I am happy to announce the St. Johns River is back in action. During the last major hurricane to hit Florida, saltwater erosion hurt the fishing conditions. As a result, it took many years for the bass fishing to come back alive.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Jon and his wife. They were traveling from Minnesota looking to cash in on some bass fishing here on the St. Johns River. North Florida is the perfect destination to explore Florida fishing, especially for largemouth bass.
A mix of clouds and breezy fishing conditions made for a productive bite. The spawn is in full effect on the St. Johns River. You can find staging fish at the mouth of the canals and shell bars. As you travel through the canal systems you can also find bedding fish.
Jon and his wife had an absolute blast catching over 15 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. Most of the fish were caught on wild-caught live shiners. It was great to see the quality of fish caught on this trip. Numbers of 3-4 pound fish were brought to the boat.
North Florida from the St. Johns River to the Rodman Reservoir is on for some great bass fishing. I look forward to fishing with Jon again in the near future!” – Captain Gino Losi

I had the pleasure of fishing with Mike and his family. They were traveling from Gainesville, FL, looking to check out what Rodman Reservoir Fishing was all about. What a day on the water for this family, especially considering the windy conditions that were persistent all trip long.
Mike and his family caught over 15 largemouth bass on this fishing trip. Most of the fish were in the 2-4 pound range. 5 of their best fish weighed in at 5 pounds 14 ounces, 6.4, 7.4, and the biggest was 8 pounds and 14 ounces. NOW that is what bass fishing on the Rodman Reservoir is all about!

Just shortly after this fishing trip, Rebecca and her significant other were traveling from South Carolina to explore North Florida. While doing so, the St. Johns River was on the menu. Bass Fishing in Florida was a must-do for them and they were sure glad that we could make it happen. Captain Gino Losi had the pleasure of fishing with this lovely couple.
A calm and cloudy day made the bass fishing interesting for this couple. The water was flowing on the river which stacked in key locations. When you come across moving current, you have to pay attention to structures such as sandbars, current breaks, and ledges. Schooling largemouth bass and hybrid bass will stay active around these points and breaks.
Captain Gino put this couple on some great action. They fished a sandbar with a shell bed at the mouth of Lake Dexter. After catching numbers of largemouth and hybrid bass, they were exhausted. The action was non-stop from the first cast to the last.
Rebecca and her significant other really enjoyed their fishing charter on the St. Johns River. Captain Gino is looking forward to seeing them out on the water again soon!

Meet Steve and Marissa, they were traveling to Central Florida from Southern California. While enjoying the Florida weather, bass fishing was on their mind. As a result, they explored what Lake Toho had to offer. Captain Brent Nelson had the pleasure of showing them around and what this beautiful fishery can produce.
Sunny, windy, and on occasion some clouds made for a fantastic day of fishing. Steve and Marissa had a blast while Lake Toho fishing with both wild-caught live shiners and artificial baits. One of the best parts about bass fishing in Florida is that you have the opportunity to fish both at any time, especially on a Florida Personal Best Fishing Charter.
The main structure that was holding fish on this trip was submerged vegetation. The windy conditions made for the best bite as it pushed bait around and into key locations. Live bait was presented on a float that pushed up against the open water hydrilla. After short minutes in the water, the bait was sucked down!
After using live bait, Steve and Marisa also caught fish on sencos, worms, and flukes. It was in the same area but around more sparse patches of grass. Steve and Marisa had an epic and awesome double up with both of their personal best bass coming in. Steve caught a 5.85 pound largemouth on artificial baits and Marissa caught a 6.81-pound largemouth bass on a shiner.
The action was hot and heavy with over 35 largemouth bass in the boat. It was an experience that they did not expect to happen and will never forget. When the fishing is this good, you want more and more of it. To say the least, they had a great time! They will most certainly be back for more action in the near future and Captain Brent is looking forward to getting them back out on the water soon!
Just shortly after this fishing trip, Mark and his son were traveling to Kissimmee, FL. They were coming from Kansas looking to cash in on some of the Florida bass fishing they always here about. Captain Gino Losi had the pleasure of getting out on the water with them.
Cloudy conditions made the bass fishing interesting. Captain Gino found some offshore brush piles that were holding fish but the largest concentrations of fish were on the outside grass lines. Lake Toho’s south end was the most productive area on this fishing trip.
Yet again, sparse patches of hydrilla on the outside edges brought in some decent numbers of male bass. The water depth was about 6 feet. Mark and his son caught over 15 largemouth bass on this fishing trip. They had a blast learning more about the lake and getting out on the water.
Captain Gino is looking forward to seeing this family again on the water soon!
