If you can ever get access to old sawgrass community,they have some hogs in the lake in there.I got an 8 pounder the only time I did.

You can't go wrong with the T- rigged senko.I love watermelon colors and I fish them weightless.Always.

I don't use rattletraps due to the excess weeds in most of the pond/lakes I fish.

Another good bait around here are Zoom salty super flukes.In watermelon colors,and weightless of course.

And Zoom trick worms are always good.

I like slightly stained lakes.If I see a murky pond I leave it alone unless I know it's good.Thats just me though.Most of the ponds are on the clearer side around here.

If you like crank baits,the baby bass color is good in deeper,clearer ponds.

There has been a fair bite in traditional repalas around here lately also.

Hey anyone fishing jax area?

Tried a couple ponds yesterday with Trophybasshunter. We fished the big pond behind southside community church with no success.Also fished a small interchange pond at butler/ southside .He caught one dink. Always searching for new ponds.

There were a few fish on beds at both spots but they werent interested.Nothing huge though.

Also caught 5 the other night at the home lake.Biggest was 2 pounds caught on 5 inch Yamamoto senko- red slice.

 I may half a couple hours on Saturday. Have some work to do probably in the morning til I get through.

I'll send you another message on Sat. When I know more. 

Baymeadows regional park has a small lake that's stocked and can be pretty good .Best with a small boat though.Its right in your area.

Great let me know, I had already thought about giving Baymeadows regional park a try.  What is the best bait to use for these lakes/ponds?

Soft plastics are the best imo.

Flukes, senkos, ribbontail worms, trick worms , baby brush hogs for starters.

All Texas rigged.

Baymeadows park has been on and off for me and is much better from a boat.. But it holds some big fish. Got some other spots off Kernan Blvd and hodges blvd. The UNF ponds are pretty good too, except that you need a parking permit to park there.

Hey thanks for the list of softies .....

Went out yesterday and pick up a few items, some senko, flukes, ribbontails and some frogs. 

 

I went out earlier to the baymeadows regional park and threw pretty much everything at them.  I ended up catching 2 small 1lbers.  Not a great day but not a skunk for my first day back on the water in Florida in about 10 years.

Hey, that's good. You do well to catch much from the bank there. I catch most of mine in the back corner by the car dealership. Got a 4 and a 3 and 6 others one time. Heard of a 10 being caught there. I usually take my J. Boat with T. Motor.

I'm done with my work but it's storming at my house. I guess we'll wait and see....

I read about those 2 bass and others over 10 pounds caught in some of the small waters in northeast Florida. Seems like a great place to catch a 10 pound bass and its no surprise why so many people from northeast Florida have +10 pound bass PB's.

Yeah, and we have lakes like Kingsley. Some of the locals think the next Florida ( maybe world ) record fish swims in there . I've heard of several 14+ fish caught in there recently.

But you can't get in there unless you are military or know somebody that lives on it.
