Fish (Fishes) Of The Month / July, 2018

While most of us were throwing crankbaits, topwater baits, jigs, spinners, and whatever else we could find in the box, two FFC members took a different approach by using soft plastic. The results speak for themselves. July 4th is going to be a date that FFC member Jim Jones will never forget. Fishing a Senko with light tackle and 6lb. mono Jim reeled in the fish of a lifetime. This beast weighed a staggering 11 lbs. 14 oz. and possibly the biggest Bass ever caught in a Villages pond. Could there be bigger?

Anyone who is superstitious would probably say that going fishing on Friday the 13th might be a bad idea. Not the case for FFC member Wayne Barksdale. He and FFC member Trevor Bailey took advantage of the great weather and headed out on Lake Griffin. Once again a soft plastic speedworm got the job done when Wayne reeled in this 7lb. 4oz. giant. Another dozen or so two and three pounders made for a great outing.
