ABSOLUTELY COLOSSAL BIG BASS YEAR!!!!!!! With so much tough stuff going on in the world around us with COVID, world events, etc. it is such a blessing sometimes to get on the water and just get lost in your surroundings and the beauty of nature. To be laser focused on nothing but that next big thump on your line and the steady peel of a giant bass heading for deep water with that bait. It's so easy to be focused on the negative, but the water has provided myself and the folks I'm lucky to take with me, with a magical escape and literally this has been a year like no other for trophy bass for our guide service! My customers have swung an ABSOLUTELY MIND BOGGLING AND INCREDIBLE 60 BASS TOPPING THE 10 POUND MARK over the side of my boat this year!!!! 30 bass over 10 pounds would have been an awesome year, but 60 is OTHER WORLDLY! With roughly one month left to go in the TrophyCatch season, 174 TrophyCatch eligible bass have come over the side of my boat! I don't think we'll set the record we've turned in for a season which is 196, but never have I had a year with so many double digit bass! So proud of my customers and how hard they've fished on this record breaking year!!!! Trips are still producing 20-30 bass per day on average even with the heat and rains with lots of bass still being caught in the 8 to 11 pound range.

I am sooooooooo behind on my fishing resorts! Been crazy covered up with some great trips and knew I was getting behind. So put some time in and put one together. Man oh man what an absolutely crazy and good big bass fishing year! This year is the best big bass fishing year myself and my customers have ever had! I've had years where I've had more bass over 8 pounds but NEVER have I had a year where we have caught more bass over 10 pounds. In the world of guiding 20 bass over 10 pounds is a good year. 25 is a darn good year. 30 is great. 35 over 10 pounds is otherworldly and anything over that is basically unheard of. As of this post we are at a mind boggling 55 bass over 10 pounds!!!!! Of that total we have 5 TrophyCatch Florida "Hall of Fame" bass topping the 13 pound mark!!!! It's proof that trophy bass fishing here in Florida is alive and well and this area of North Central Florida may arguably be the best! Trips recently are producing 25-45 bass per day with lots of slobs. We are battling the rains which can make things chaotic and unpredictable but somehow we always find a way. These bass bring the total TrophyCatch Florida Big Bass Count to 148 so far with 2 months to go!!

The 2021 Monster Bass Mayhem Continues! What an absolutely incredible big bass year! The super sized bass just keep on coming this year. It is the best big bass year I've ver had! This year to date we've caught a mind boggling 48 bass topping the 10 pound mark!!! The last couple weeks have been just some great fishing for both numbers and trophy bass. Probably the trip that stands out the most in these photos was the trip Mr & Mrs. John Cox had with me. Over a span of 3 days the couple caught 7 TrophyCatch eligible bass coming in at 8lbs 10oz, 10lbs, 10lbs 4oz, 10lbs 9oz, 10lbs 15oz, 11lbs 4oz & 12lbs 1oz!!!! We had days a week or so back where we caught over 50 bass per day on Rodman. I am hoping and praying that the recent flooding from the afternoon showers and Hurricane Elsa don't cause any serious issues. These bass bring the total number of TrophyCatch Florida eligible bass to 119 for the year!
