Weld's Winter So. Florida Fishing Trip

Recommended Posts

Hey! The time has come to catch big lunkers again. Just landed in Florida today and I will be making my first casts at sunrise.

I will use this thread to post videos, images and reports.

 

Here are some of the lures that I cannot wait to use. Just looking at them gets me stoked up!!

Good luck down there. You have a nice variety of baits to use. Don't worry about the reel. Iv'e caught bass up to 10lbs on a spinning reel like that throwing big Huddleston Swimbaits.

I hope the stradic is just for the shakyhead 

 

Why? I use 1000FI models for bass fishing.

Caught quite a few bass over 6 pounds on

them. They are extremely capable reels.

 

And good luck, Weld! Catch some beasties.

I use a 1000 for bass but not for jigs, chatterbaits, frogs, swimbaits, etc. Not saying that it can't be done, just not what I would do. Hooksets would be my main concern unless it's on a MH or H

Bit of a brief update too, sorry, its getting late, been trying to upload my fooatage... gotta wake up tomorrow for sunrise fishing again :eyebrows:

I had great success in the morning and in the evening. I have footage of all the fish I caught, I am working on two videos currently. My computer has been giving me difficulties tonight, so I will upload the videos tomorrow.

Great way to start out your trip.

 

Good thing you set & tested that drag.

 

By the looks of it, you probably used it a few times.

 

Nice work

The reel isn't the issue it's the rod.  Right now here in South Florida there is a lot of sea lettuce, 2 days ago this canal was wide open and I was using nothing but exposed hooks, not the case yesterday.  I normally fish a ml, yesterday I had to fish med spinning, glad I had it with me.  This stuff can get pretty thick, yes the bass fishing was quite good yesterday.
