Largemouth Bass Fishing Florida | In The Spread Videos

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

Not every manufacturer does this, the good ones will, but it is critical. Tuna, especially big tuna, put a beating on a lure and nothing sucks more that having your lure crumble under the crushing punishment of repeated tuna bites. With through wire construction, it doesn't matter if you lure splits in half, each hook will stay attached to your line. You can learn more about this in the videos Seth made with us.

    Mangrove Snapper | A Fishing Love Affair

    An aggressive fish by nature, mangrove snapper, show up early to your party and then vanish after having their fill of your baits. Their kind of rude, if you think about it. Mangrove snapper are the classic hit and run gamefish. The trick is catching enough of them to fill a small cooler. As soon as you start hauling in other species, it's time to move.
