Golf Course Pond Giant Bass


Captain Phil

Recommended Posts

We have old friends that recently bought a home in a golf course community north of Daytona Beach.  Across the street from their home, there is a series of small ponds.  We visit them often and have been catching bass in the pond.  Until yesterday, the fish were about 1-2 pounds.   I was fishing with a Zoom Speed worm when I got a solid hit on the bottom of the pond.  I set the hook and all heck broke loose. What a fight.  The bass was one of the stronger fish I have caught in some time.  Jack held the fish up so I could take a photo with my phone.  The fish was a real chunk that weighed about 6 pounds.  Who needs a boat when you can catch fish like that by walking across the street?

Untapped resources.  Hidden gems. Where the big girls live.  My daughter just moved into a farm on 50 acres that has 2 ponds on it.  I can’t wait to give them a shot.

Golf course looks in rough shape based on the back ground.  Nice fish though.

 

I love your goofy humor.

Actually, the photo was taken with some woods behind where Jack was standing.  The golf course itself looks to be manicured with scissors. I am waiting for them to tell us we need to wear a black tie to fish there.  ?

You would probably make a good following on YouTube. "Tuxedoed Fishing, the gentlemans sport" You could carry a set of rods in a golf bag to each water "hole" and speak in old english. At noon you could set up a folding camp chair and sip on sweet tea in little cups and discuss the other wild life in the area (the golfers).

If we did, it would be more like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddy Shack.  ?

I'll be Bill Murray, mumbling while I fish for snakeheads.
