Bass still biting in Everglades

Canals along Alligator Alley among the hottest spots

June 21, 2010|By Steve Waters, Sun Sentinel
Despite the heat, bass continue to bite in the canals along Alligator Alley west of the Miami Canal.
Mike Lendl, the director of the King of the Glades Team Club Trail, said anglers in Sunday’s tournament out of the mile marker 41 boat ramp all caught good numbers of fish, but plastic frogs and big plastic worms were the keys to catching big fish.
Tony Masiello won the tournament with 20.37 pounds. According to Lendl, Masiello caught his fish on the new Sumkina Pro Toad lure and a swimbait.
Lendl and Brett Isackson were second at 20.23 using big plastic worms. Wayne Fellows and Mark Alexander also used big worms to finish third at 20.06 and Fellows had the big bass at 5.57.
J.P. McKay and Paul Wormser were fourth at 16.18 using big worms and Mike Harris and Mike Mahaffey were third at 11.68. Prospective members can call Lendl at 754-246-3198

Congratulations Tony & Brett!
Till next time tight lines and good fishing….
