Cooling Florida Temperatures
We started out fishing a large grass flat looking for schooling Bass. Chris hooked up to a nice 2 pound Bass within the first 30 seconds of arriving at the spot. We then changed spots in search of more schooling Bass. As we enter into Fall, cooling water temperatures will help make the Bass very active. We have seen a drop in water temperature from 89 degrees down to the low 80's which is perfect for catching schooling Bass this time of year. I told the guys that at any second we could have hundreds of Bass busting the surface around the boat once we got them fired up using a jerkbait. We pulled into the back of a cove and that's exactly what happened. Ethan, the oldest boy, makes a perfect cast and we can see multiple 2-3 pound Bass chasing after his lure and hooks up! Chris cast in and has two Bass blow up on his topwater lure. Then the entire cove if full of Bass blowing up bait fish on the surface, and it became almost impossible not to catch a fish. Chris hooks a 3 and a 4 pounder at the same time on his topwater lure. We fished this cove for about an hour with non-stop action, having multiple double ups and catching multiple fish at a time on one lure, and enjoying the show the Bass were putting on for us. We finished our day with the 2 boys having another double up as we watched the sunset over the Butler Chain of Lakes. We could not have asked for a better day of fishing!
