Local Angler Records 13lb. 11oz. Villages Pond Catch!!

Fishing Florida waters this past December was certainly a challenge. Frosty mornings, warm sunny afternoons, and water temps all over the place certainly made things interesting. On top of all that, finding a bait that worked took considerable time. Well it looks like FFC member Frank Martines figured it all out and the results speak for themselves. On December 7th Frank took this 6lb 9oz Chatham Square Pond Bass on a Squarebill.

Franks second big catch in December was this 7lb 2oz beast that was taken with a Bluegill color Red Eye Shad crankbait.

Thats 13lbs 11oz of Villages pond Bass!!! WTG Frank. Another “Fish Of The Month” pin is headed your way.Pin

FFC member Jim Jones is having success fishing the ZMan “Fatty Z” soft plastic bait.

Best fished with a Shakey Head or Jig Head this 5″ bait is definitely worth trying. This 3lb 8oz Villages pond Bass found it irresistible.

Now it’s been a while since I’ve reported a decent catch but that all changed on December 19th. This 5lb 2oz hit a gold lipless crankbait.

Apparently this fish has an appetite for artificial baits. Two days later club President Randy DiSanto took this same fish on a silver crankbait.

Thanks to all who have reported and sent pics. Keep them coming.
