Bass fishin' in January, Florida style!

nova_gwJanuary 7, 2007

Temps in the 80's today, humidity off the charts but a "cool" front due tomorrow. Worked in the yard most of the day and decided to wet a line this evening. Due to our drought conditions getting the boat out is a chore so I decided to bank fish alittle. Well it paid off! Check out this honey -

Six pounds and a little bit after a half hour of casting! I love my backyard! nova

Very nice Bass Nova. There are days when I'd rather bank fish then use my boat. Either way, I always have a nice time just being out. Great you got a chance to do so this time of year. I hope this next week, (weather provided) I too will be out getting an early start on some fishing. They seem to taste better coming out of the colder water.

Thanks anya! I hope your weather permitted you to get out this week and catch a nice one. I let that ole girl go after taking her picture because they are trying to go on bed already! We usually only keep the 2 to 3 pounders for dinner. Since the lake is spring fed the water stays pretty cool year round and, yeah, I think the bass that come from the cooler water taste better too! nova

Thanks for the website Bill! Lots of cool pictures. I do think I will wait for a little bigger one to come along before I post there tho! I caught that one on the first time I wet a line in about 3 months [hunting season gets in the way of fishing! I hate it when that happens!] nova

Well, my club had our monthly meeting night before last, and we got our club tournament schedule. I've got good news and bad news.

The good news is one of our tourneys is on a lake where the boatramp's not 3 minutes from my house.

The bad news is one of our tourneys is on a lake where the boatramp's not 3 minutes from my house.

Last time I was on that lake, I took half the casing off my lower unit (and one of the blades off my prop) at 35 miles an hour on a rock sitting just 4" below the surface in 17 feet of water!! I think I'll be fishing that one as a non-boater!!
