Alligator Lake Feb 28, 2012

Today we fished Alligator Lake. It was overcast, about 75 degrees and 10 to 15 mph winds. Water temp was 64.5 degrees. We caught about 10 small bass (less than 14 inches) and one really good one.

                                The next 2 pictures are typical of what we have been catching:

                             The following are of the beast of the day. She put up quite a fight!

Private pond (June 2011)

Another retroactive post: We were fishing in a private pond in southeast Georgia back in June of 2011. We caught quite a few that day, the biggest one being 5 and 1/2 pounds. It was June, and since it was south georgia, it was already pretty warm outside. The water was clear and I was using a trick worm.

The fight...

The reward

Eagle Lake (November 2011)

This post is a few pictures from Eagle Lake in Hamilton county, Florida. These were taken  back in the beginning of November of last year . We frequent Eagle Lake pretty often so there will be more in the future. Heres a link to google maps so you can see an aerial view of it.,-82.80123&spn=0.017876,0.038538&t=h&z=15&q=eagle+lake+hamilton+co+fl&hl=en&gw=30&lyt=large_map     
Fishing this day was okay. We didnt get a lot of bites that day and have done better on other days. There are a lot of hybrid bass here as well. No gasoline motors are allowed here and black bass have to be 14 inches to take home.

This is the view from the boat ramp.

This was the biggest catch of the day.

Lots of big gators there as well. (Might wanna leave Fido at home)

Saturday fishing (2/18/2012)

I'll start with some pics of the fish I caught over this past weekend. We were fishing at Alligator Lake in Columbia County, Fl. It was overcast but the fish were biting like crazy. Caught a total of 11 fish. Nothing really keeper size (Alligator Lake has to be 14" for bass) but thats okay because Im a firm believer in catch and release. I want future generations to be able to enjoy the sport of fishing.


Welcome to my blog. I want to use this to post pictures and information from my various fishing trips. Right now Im mostly fishing in north central Florida (because thats where I live) so most of the posts will be from this area. Enjoy.
