The rawest fishing I’ve had in a long time – smashing over 31lbs of Florida bass on 2 spots in one day. Totally challenging day with not a ton of bites but when i found them they were huge fish and totally aggressive once I figured out the little nuance. That nuance was ripping the bait of fishing lure off the top of underwater structures and drawing reaction bites from suspended fish that no one else was targeting.
Weather was partly to mostly cloudy, even turning into some rain at the end of the day when I caught that final 7+lbs fish.
Magical day of fishing, the kind you dream of and it has everything to do with putting time in on the water and paying attention to details of your bites and retrieves.

Had a slow day up until taking a pause from fishing, going for a swi. Had dropped a waypoint on my way in to pick the girl up at the dock and went right back to check it. Turned out to be a pretty hot brushpile in the 90 degree heat!

out on a breezy but warm day fishing brushpiles but struggling a bit to stay lined up on them. ended up losing a 5 pound fish throwing a Gambler Wrecking Ball paired up with a half of an ER 16 mag straight worm. switched over to a carolina rig with a big heaver Reins Tungsten weight to stay more connected with the bottom and cover when dragging rigged up with a Burner Worm and popped a 7 pound bass.
Spent a lot of time fishing deeper, clearer lakes in central Florida over the past year and I’m starting to believe you can catch fish deep year round.
