Headed to Sunny Florida last week for a week of fun in the sun

Fished most days played a few rounds of golf and enjoyed some great weather
80's most days and sunny...Bit windy at times.

Caught:

31 Bass
1 Talapia
1 turtle
0 snook :-(

Most were caught on flick shakes and shakey heads, a few on a jerk baits and rattle-traps

South Florida is in a drought the water in the local ponds was about 3 feet low :shock:



Here are a few pics of the bigger bass



























Came home to 2 inches of snow...... :evil: Come on !!!!!!!!!

Well done Mike! I am in Ft. Myers right now and there is a definite drought going on down there. The little pond that I am fishing is down probably at least 4 feet, but let's just say that there are a lot of bass in it. :wink: I have lost count of how many fish I have already caught and I just got here yesterday. :mrgreen:

You guys are making me sick with all this Florida bass talk. Oh to be catching dozens of bass right now. Instead I have to look at snow with very little prospect of good fishing for the next few weeks........at least. Ugh!

Nice job though.

Both of you guys stop it :p You are bringing back too many fond memories of Florida bass. Even my college roomates grandmothers trailer park was a fun time because of the pond fishing. Just insane fishing there in February/March. Go get a 10lber Doc 8)

Nice! I have an awesome three piece rod that came with a hard plastic tube. I usually stuff it sideways in my suitcase. The rod has been to sweeden, austria and even Jamaica! The people in Jamaica thought I was a god. I kind of turned into a bucket head while down there and gave all the fish I caught to the workers at the resort.

I bought the rod from BPS. They offer a similar one now that is shorter and has a lighter action.
