Capt Ken Always Delivers
Captain Ken Walker had the pleasure of fishing with Curtis. Curtis was traveling from Fort Myers in search of catching his personal best largemouth bass. There is one fishery in this state that can allow this to happen almost every month of the year. That fishery is known as the Rodman Reservoir.
Cooler water temperatures, vast water, ample bait, and structure provide the ultimate ecosystem for big bass. Captain Ken is one of the BEST guides to get you on a trophy largemouth bass on this fishery.
Luckily, the Reservoir came to life on this trip. Curtis was excited to land a Rodman beast weighing 9 pounds 7 ounces. For a summertime bass, that was a beautiful fish. You just don’t generally see that quality of fish when fishing for bass in the summer months. The most effective method on this trip was wild-caught live shiners under thick matted vegetation.
Curtis was highly satisfied on this fishing trip. Captain Ken is looking forward to getting him back on the water soon!
It was not long after this fishing trip that Captain Steve Niemoeller went out to explore North Florida. He was back in his old hunting grounds on the St. Johns River. Captain Steve had the pleasure of fishing with Robert and his son RJ. They were traveling from Maryland looking to explore what Florida had to offer. The St Johns River was always a place they wanted to experience.
Doesn’t Matter the of the Year
The summer months are here making fishing conditions sometimes difficult. Water levels on these major fisheries especially the St Johns River will fluctuate. The water levels were high on this fishing trip and the bass did not seem to want to cooperate. After steady persistence, Robert and RJ caught several nice largemouth bass.
RJ was pleased to catch some beautiful largemouth bass and is looking forward to getting back down there for more action soon. If you want to fish the St Johns River, the cooler months of the year are best. Our local experts will work hard to get you on the fish you desire.
Captain Steve is looking forward to getting back on the water with Robert and Rj in the near future!
