Giant Florida Bass Await!

Cold weather Up North signals the start of an awesome shot at a giant Florida largemouth bass. Regardless of the spawn period, bass are feeding. While artificial lures can work at times, the surest way to a lunker is by fishing big live golden shiners, their natural prey in these lakes.

Probing hydrilla banks, water hyacinths, cattails, or other cover, these big livebaits draw the big ones. Bass from 6 to 8 pounds are common, with a good shot at busting the 10-pound barrier at any time, so bring heavy tackle!


When you get you lunker, send it into In-Fisherman's Master Angler Award Program, as well as Florida's new Trophy Catch Program.
