SMALLmouth & YOU SHOW ME YOURS

NOTE: New Florida Bass Length Limit In Affect. Keep 4 any length under 16″ and only one allowed over 16″. Effective July 1st, 2016

 

While snowbirds are visiting family & friends to the north & beyond, some of us are enjoying the cool crisp mornings waking up in 321?? zip code….NOT….living near the equator can be good in February, but this time of year can be brutal. I had 95.2 surface water temp on July 7 on Lake Griffin. Still managed to promote a strike from a 3.6 lbr on a lipless.

The pic of the fingerling was no surprise to me….not that I found it floating but that it even exists. There’s plenty of bass in Lake Griffin and although challenging at times, rest assured they’re still there & reproducing. I’ve not seen any stocking reports recently so figure this guy was a natural.

Below are Barksdale Brothers (L) Jim & Wayne showing their, speaking for myself, normal  size bass they caught while fishing in Missouri. Sure do miss catching smallmouth.

Our summer break is quickly coming to an end. The 2016/2017 season will feature something for all & will surely meet your approval. Remember we have new officers starting in September, we’re always looking for volunteers, and if you have any pictures contact us. We’ll be more than happy to make you world famous or as some prefer, keep you in the witness protection program and not tell your “SECRET SPOT”.
