My old college friend, Scott Farrugia, and I reunited after a long time no see to share a day of bass fishing with his son and his buddy. We had a blast sharing old times and watching the boys making memories. Those kids could fish too. Weather was nice and the fish were eating, it made for a special day. One thing is for sure, time flies and kids grow faster than a bass at the stick marsh, so take some time and treat your loved ones to a day they won’t forget.
April has been kind to those of us who call Central Florida home. We have enjoyed a number of good days on the lake and have had lots of chances to get out and experience the nice weather and some fine spring bass fishing.
I had the opportunity to take out Nick Anderson and his friend Lon Danielson for a day before Nick returned to his home in Iowa. We had a nice day and caught some good fish and Nick got some great action shots of the local feathered friends with his large zoom lens.
Our old friend, Greg Beyers, made another day trip to Farm 13 to show his Brother James and his nephew, Danny, some primo bass fishing Florida style. Those California boys were indeed shown a good time as the day was nice and the bass did bite pretty well for them. The Beyers family competition of 1st, most, biggest went down to the wire with the youngster Danny grabbing 2 out of 3. Despite a late in the day charge attempt at a sweep, Uncle Greg did capture the most for the day leaving James a bit lighter in the wallet overall.
The thing I’ll leave you with this time is, ” We always have fun.” Come on out and get some. All you need to do is call.
Fall is such a subtle season here in Central Florida. We quickly went from oppressive heat to comfortably cool and we are now set to slip into prespawn paterns and the annual spawn. For me this time of the year is the absolute best and it just torments me to miss out on a good weather day. Luckily there were quite a few nice ones we were able to take advantage of in November.
Hard to believe it is Easter already seems like it was just Turkey day. Boy oh boy time sure flies when the fishing is good. Since a picture is worth a thousand words I’ve put together a few grand worth to visually explain what the first quarter of 2012 was like.
