Going to change things up a bit this month and let the lucky angler describe his catch. I received this message from FFC member Wayne Barksdale on May 12th. Here is the story.
“What a great bass trip I had today. Went to Lakeland to fish the Winter Haven chain. All ramps are open..my big bass was 8lb 7oz.
Next was a 6lb 2oz. I caught several bass in the 3 and 4lb range. All of them were in 10 to 12 ft. water..no grass just a hard bottom. Used a Tokyo Rig with June bug trailer and magnum trick worm. June bug. Used regular 5/16 weight for magnum”
Sounds like a great day to me!
Several nice fish were reported last month. I encourage everyone to sign up on the fishing reports page and share what you have been doing.
