Today’s freshwater fishing report from beautiful Highlands County in Florida’s heartland is not a whole lot different from last week. The weather was nicer and as you can see in these photos….no wind. Today’s report by the way is brought to you by the brand new Team GAFF. Team GAFF…your one-stop source of fishing information. Anything you wish to know about fishing of any kind can be found right here on the GAFF Life fishing forum. Today’s adventure begins at approximately 0700 hours. Outside temperature matched the water temperature at a cool comfortable 65 degrees, clear skies over Lake Charlotte, with some patchy fog.
The countdown to lift-off had begun in this photo, with the SS Louie on the launch pad and ready to go.
He got things started with this fine specimen, caught in the act. Louie started right out with his Blue Fox In-line Vibrax Spinner. He figured that since he tore my butt up with it last week, that he’d give it another try (you know……if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it I guess). I was using my old trusty black and silver Original Rapala. This was the start of a good day for somebody.
As the morning progressed, he continued catching bass and talking trash (he’s getting better at that too)!
Now here’s somebody that knows how to pond hop!
He finished up the morning with this nice Speck……………
and dangling this monster Bluegill in my face.
And as this flock of Sand Hill Cranes was heading somewhere east, we were headed west to the house at around 1100 hours. Another great day on the water, and although he ended up with twelve, I did manage to catch one on the way back to the truck. So I didn’t get skunked after all (thank goodness)!!!
See you next time!
That's how it goes! The grasshopper always eventually becomes the master.
Tell me about it...Taught my girlfriend how to fish the canal systems and lakes here in South Florida, and now she outdoes me just about every time...I think it just means we, as the "master," did a great job teaching the "grasshopper."
