Fish Of The Month / June, 2019

With air temps in the mid 90’s and feels like temps in the triple digits, summertime fishing can be quite a challenge. If you dress appropriately, stay hydrated, and you are prepared to try different methods, you will be rewarded. It appears that FFC member Trevor Bailey has a good handle on things and he reported several nice June catches. On a June 6th outing on Lake Griffin the catch of the day was a nice 4lb. 9oz. Bass taken with a One-Knocker. A second trip to Griffin on June 14th had even better results. A 6lb 1oz.

and a 7lb. 9oz. Bass taken with a One-Knocker and a frog. WTG Trev, hope the streak continues.

Now we have all heard the term “Photo Bomb” and here is a good example.

It’s FFC member Bob Heinbach and his latest catch. This nice 17″ (approx. 3lb.) Villages pond Tilapia was taken with what Bob calls a “Trash” fly.

It looks like Bob is on to something here with his custom design. Club President Randy DiSanto recently road tested one of Bob’s creations and its a winner.FOTM
