The Largemouth Bass Fishing in Central Florida

The largemouth bass fishing in Central Florida is remarkable. There are so many lakes that support habits conducive to the growth of giant bass. This is truly big bass country. Knowing when and where to fish throughout the year can be a challenge. Most of the well known bass lakes are not super easy to fish, but if you spend enough time on the water or know someone who spends ample amounts of time on the water, then you are way ahead of the game.

Last week, we ventured to a remote lake south of Orlando with bass fishing pro Nick Kefalides to target largemouth bass on topwater. As he says, “this is not for the faint of heart”. Surface detonations can startled you, as big bass explode on lures. Nick is an ex-marine special operator, so he brings a unique discipline to his fishing. He is very focused, patient and ready for any eventuality. He passion is topwater fishing and it shows.

Nick and I put together a 2 hour program on how to target largemouth bass on topwater that shares incredible depth of information on how to break down a shallow water lake. We drill into lures and presentation, casting and retrieval methodology, boat positioning, how to stay weedless, identifying fish behavioral patterns and more. Nick provides a stream of consciousness about what is happening and how he is responding while catching healthy bass and healthy bass. You can check out this amazing video at

Oxygen levels will once again change and feeding time will once again move as the weather dictates. The key is understanding their habits adjusting your presentation and fishing where the fish are!

    Kick Ass Musky Lures

    Stop trying to scope the next “hot bait”. Most of these “hot baits” I’ve seen are nothing more than microwave meal versions of culinary masterpieces pushed by guys who don’t have the wherewithal to care about integrity or the fact they emulate other designs. Do you want incredibly versatile modular bait designs in literally every category?

    The Barbarian from H2O Tackle

    Probably the most versatile and eclectic pallet with some of the sickest paint jobs you’ll ever see come from the mind of Roger Watters, owner of H20 Tackle. I must admit myself, having not been able to actually try one of his baits first hand for a time, I kinda glazed over them. Big mistake. The first time I saw a Barbarian in the water, I was floored at how naive I was.
