Piney-Z Lake Bass and Gators

After so much success last trip we decided to take a trip back a few days later. We immediately went to the other side of the lake, to deeper water and the tree clumps. Caught a handful of fish and saw a bunch of wildlife including bald eagles, ospreys, gators, and a very curious otter that came over to say hello and stare at us. Overall another successful day on the water.

Pre-Super Bowl Bass on Lake Talquin

Headed to Lake Talquin with Alain of on a foggy Sunday.  Headed out of coe’s landing on the east side of the lake and proceeded to fish what locals call the iron curtain. The Iron Curtain is a group of trees that are located within the lake creating great structure for fish.  We ended up catching a few fish here as well as loosing quite a few. On the outskirts of the trees I managed to hook up with a freshwater catfish which hit a senko worm with paddle tail rigged weedless. We continued on and ended the day catching a huge 5lb large mouth. Here are the pictures from the day!

Febuary Bass Fishing in Northwest Florida In the Gheenoe

Woke up today at 6:30am and headed to Piney-Z Lake with Alain of SoFlo Bass Fishing It is a small lake that was once part of the larger Lake Lafayette . It was dammed up during the late 1940's when the owners created a farm pond out of park of Lake Lafayette creating Piney-Z. It has been stocked by the Florida fish and wildlife conservation, who has created a diverse ecological system. The lake is a no internal combustion motor zone, so we took only the trolling motor topping the Gheenoe out at around 5mph. We ended up seeing large grass carp, large alligator gar, as well as catching large mouth bass.  We ended up catching most of the bass on Senko worms worked weedless. Here are the pictures from the day.
