Central Florida Bass Fishing on a COLD DAY! 2-3-09

Recommended Posts

Well I had the chance to do some bass fishing yesterday just after a huge front came through.  I knew conditions would be tough but we managed to catch a few 2-3 pound fish with some smaller ones mixed in.  We were working brush piles in 13 to 16 foot of water and the retrieve was brutually SLOW.  We were using carolina rigs and texas rigged plastic worms june bug color with paddle tails.  We would literally be hung on a tree and jiggle the bait until a bass would hit.

As the day got later it turned colder and the fish really started turning off.  All in all it was a good day considering the conditions.  We got enough film for Fishing Simplified and we didn't have to film more than one day thank god because it has just gotten colder.  I am hoping by next week we can get out again and do some more bass fishing!

If it makes you feel any better it was 7* here this morning and 8* yesterday morning and there is about 4" of snow on the ground.  Oh yeah, all ponds are frozen over.  It's calling for 60* here on Saturday and not a darn thing you can do to fish!

I went out on Spring Lake in Altamonte before the game Sunday and surprisingly landed a few 2-3 pounders within 15 minutes.  The day before I got up around 6 and got a 3 pounder and a few nice speck at Sand Lake.  This year seems to be starting out good.  Seems like there is a comeback in the hatch over the last few years.  Does anyone else feel that?
