Florida Bass Fishing

Well after making the move back down to Florida and finally settling in after a few months down here I've had time to go on a few fishing trips on the local lake. It's been super hot this summer and the only time I can handle the heat is early morning.

I took the canoe out a few times as well as going out with my old friend Tom. It was good times even though the fishing hasn't been that great. It was sure nice to be back out on the lake where I grew up fishing. The past 5-6 years the lake has been really low due to the drought. Last year the rains filled it back up to its normal level. All this water has made fishing kind of hard and they've been really hit or miss.

 

A few pictures of the canoe trip by myself.

 

And a some of the trip with Tom.

 

I made a trip last month to a local spillway where it's fresh water running into the gulf. Their were lots of fish to be caught but my camera died before I could snap any photos. It was really hot but I ended up catching two nice 4-5 pound bass.

Some pics of the spillway.

Thanks for looking. It was great fishing in Florida again.

We resized your photos to a

We resized your photos to a width of 550, so they would fit within the topic frame. The height will adjust automatically, so no need to enter a number for that portion.

If you upload directly to BGH via attachment, the thumbnails will be visible with your post after you've uploaded and saved your post. Try it, the gallery lightbox that pops up when you click on the thumbnail is really cool and you don't have to size the photos down. Also when you add as an attachment, you do not have to place the image in the post by cutting & pasting the code like you did with the above post.

By the way, cool photos! Thumbs up

I need to head down there and visit an old girlfriend and do some fishing.  I didn't know that there was any place in Florida that the water flowed like that.

Not too shabby for tough conditions! I'm still waiting to put my first nickle in the First National Bank of Bass.

There's lots of running water

There's lots of running water here in FL it just doesn't flow as fast. I live next to the Withlacoochee River and it's a great spot for bass and catfish.

That is at Inglis Locks and Spillway right off hwy 19. It's where salt water meets fresh. Great place to catch fresh and saltater species like bass catfish and mullet even crabs at times. I've also caught some nice snook,  jack crevel , and even a few large tarpon there. Its right near the Barge canal.

It's been way to hot for me to go fishing lately but I might try and get out this afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by.Hello
