Caught my 104th Large mouth Today for 2017

Recommended Posts

I have the great fortune to live in Loxahatchee, FL and work in Deerfield Beach.  Between noon and 1 PM nearly every week day I fish one of the dozen bodies of water within 10 minutes of my office which hold fish.  On the weekends I bank fish around Loxahatchee.  This year I have been using 4" - 6" Senkos, Texas-rigged with a 3/16 oz lead bullet weight and 12 lb mono.  Nearly every fish caught this year has been landed with that set up.  This breakdown for the fish caught so far follows:

 

Under 1 lb - 91 fish

1 - 2 lbs    - 9 fish

2 - 3 lbs     - 1 fish

3 - 4 lbs     - 1 fish

4 - 5 lbs     - 1 fish

6 - 7 lbs     - 0 fish

7 - 8 lbs     - 1 fish (7 lb 4 oz my PB)

8+ lbs        - 0 fish

 

This represents 52 days, fishing 1 hour each day.  If this catch rate continues, it is going to be a great year!

 

How many have you caught?

I too fish Loxahatchee from time to time.  I have probably fished it 10 times this year from the Lox Road ramps.  I fish almost everyday and have caught many hundreds of bass this year.  I have no idea of how many dinks, up to 22 inches this year.  This has been a good month with 6 between 20 to 22 inches.  It would drive me nuts to keep count of how many 1 to 2 pounders I have caught.  I too fish senkos, u-vibes, flukes,swim frogs, and trick worms, a lot.  Good luck out there, maybe ill see you at lox.  I have a 18 foot winner bass boat with a 115 Yamaha four stroke.

I believe I've only caught 11 bass so far this year.  I won't complain since many years the water is still covered in ice this time of year.

I am current restoring a 1984 Bayliner Trophy 1710, but am limited to bank fishing until I get her seaworthy again. Let me know anytime you have an empty seat in your boat, I will gladly put my butt in it!

Pretty awesome to have all those cool Florida ponds so close.  Great numbers and sweet 7-plus! I'll be heading back home to NY to fish with my Dad in 2 weeks (first time in 2017).  Not gonna get my hopes up but the bar has been set pretty high in the last 6 or 7 seasons fishing in Early April.  Planning on one day for brown ones and one day for greenies.  It will be "disappointing" if we don't catch 35 - 60 smallmouth and 20 - 30 largemouth.  Can't wait!

I like your method for tracking them! Something to look at at the end of the year! We still have ice up here!

Yep, a couple hundred + here, too. First one on Feb. 11 this year and been catching them ever since. Great start for Indiana, and we're still just in March B)

So far zero. But my local lakes just thawed a week or two ago and I'm headed out in a few minutes to hopefully catch a few!

A grand total of one for me this year, and I had to drive six hours south, to Kent's place, to get that one.

I've been catching them like crazy!  I caught probably 30 over 3 lbs, I had on one that was sure to be my new PB, then my alarm clock went off and I had to get up and go to work.

Son of a...

 

Here I am, haven't caught a d**n fish since November - and I've been trying!

 

Switched over to trying to catch some trout once winter came along - struck out every time I went trout fishing.

Maybe down there in Mexico, but up here a hundred fish day is practically unheard of.:(

I have never done it (record is 78 bass in an afternoon) and only know one person who has.
