The Southern Part of Florida holds many freshwater species that you can catch. Florida Fishing Ledges is incredible this time of year for Peacock Bass. Naples is a great place to visit to experience what Florida Bass Fishing has to offer.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Woody and his wife Kim. They were coming over to Naples, Florida to fish the Golden Gate Canals. We experienced Cold Front Effects on this trip but that didn’t stop us from catching multiple quality bass.
Our main focus was ledges and structure in the 8 to 10 foot range. Pitching wild caught shiners on these ledges allowed for a great bite. We also trolled shiners along them as well.
Woody and Kim caught several quality peacock bass. Most were in the 3 pound range. As the day warmed up, the bite got stronger.
On this fishing trip, the water temperature was 68. I am looking forward to fishing with them again in the future. Don’t miss out on your Naples Bass Fishing trip next time visiting the state!
Each destination on Lake Okeechobee has incredible things to offer. Florida Bass Fishing has been exceptional on Lake Okeechobee this season. A Kissimmee River fishing charter can help provide you with a true outdoor experience.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Bill and Mike. They were traveling from Central Florida to experience what Lake Okeechobee had to offer. Okeechobee City was the closest location to them. The North End is an excellent destination to catch quality largemouth bass.
We adventured out for a quick 4 hour fishing trip. Wild caught live shiners were the most effective using 4 dozen of them. We focused mainly on the Kissimmee River. During this fishing trip, the Gut or Pass was the most effective location.
The bass started to bite later than expected. Even though, we still caught several quality fish. Bill and Mike landed a 4.5, 4.7 and the biggest at 5 pounds. You can’t beat the action down here on Lake Okeechobee.
I am looking forward to fishing with Bill and Mike again in the future. Don’t miss out on your fishing adventure in Florida next time visiting!

On my first trip out, I had the pleasure of fishing with Tyler and his Dad Greg. They wanted to explore Lake Okeechobee while the fishing conditions were clean and clear. We fished out of Harney Pond near the North End.
The bite was active the whole trip and they caught 50 largemouth bass. Water temperatures were at 75 degrees. Bass are continuing to transition to the flats to spawn. They had a blast catching Florida Largemouth bass with a giant in the boat weighing close to 7 pounds.
After this trip, I went out in the afternoon with Patty and Paul. They wanted to explore Lake Okeechobee during a late day bite. Fishing was great again with a lot of action.
Top water baits, flukes and speed worms near milfoil grass flats were effective in catching the largemouth bass. They caught some great numbers weighing up to 3 pounds.
Unfortunately they had a big one on and it broke us off. Don’t miss out on the action on Lake Okeechobee as it begins to pick up. We had a great time and I am looking forward to fishing with these people again soon!

According to Captain Mark, the fish are on the move. The next trip out of Belle Glade proved this to be true. Frank, Brian, Dave and Curt were traveling to the south end of Lake Okeechobee to enjoy catching Florida largemouth bass from West Virginia. Captain Mark pulled up to a very productive mat and the action was red hot from there using another 4 dozen shiners from Slims Fish Camp.
Frank, Brian, Dave and Curt also caught 30-35 largemouth bass on another gorgeous day on the water. Wild caught live shiners were the most productive bait to use on this fishing trip. In order to entice the bass, anchor rigs along the mat edge drew the fish to the bait. They truly enjoyed catching several quality bass weighing up to 7.94 pounds. It was a blast putting these great gentlemen on fish that they will remember for a lifetime.

I had the pleasure of fishing with Ron Powers and his daughter Catlin. They were traveling from up North to catch these Florida Bass. Naples Golden Gate Canal System holds excellent water for Peacock Bass Fishing.
We had a great day of fishing focusing on the ledges in the canals. These ledges are 7 to 8 feet deep and hold the bass. Wild caught domestic shiners were the most effective method in catching them. Pitch them along the ledge and hold on for a fight of a life!
Ron and Catlin caught over 40 bass including peacock and largemouth. The biggest fish weighed in the range of 3.5 to 4 pounds. We had multiple big fish on that got caught up in the trees.
Water temperature was at 76 which were perfect for catching the peacock bass. The action will continue to be great through the winter months and will get really strong as it is consistently warm.
I am looking forward to fishing with them next time as they love to catch largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee as well!
