Peace on the Boat


Lower St. Johns River and Lake largemouth bass should continue to be caught following the schools of bait fish present in the river. Anglers should plan on being out early as recreational boating reaches its peak during this time of year making many areas of the river difficult to fish even in the late evening. The redear sunfish (shellcracker) and bluegill spawn comes to an end but fishing should remain good early this period. Lake Jesup and Lake George are among the most popular bream fisheries on the river. Striped bass seek cool water in the summer and should be congregating near the mouth of Blue Springs, the Wekiva River, the Croaker Hole in Little Lake George, and at other thermal refuges in the river. Grass shrimp, small shad and eels are the preferred baits for these fish.

Our no fish, no pay guarantee on all Daytona bass fishing trips leaves us consistently standing alone at the top when it comes to credibility and reliability in the Daytona bass fishing industry.


Lake George is the second largest freshwater lake in Florida, only world-famous Lake Okeechobee is bigger in the Sunshine State. Clearly the largest with the St. Johns River system. Lake George covers some 46,000 acres or 11 miles long by 6 miles wide, George lies about halfway between the headwaters of the St. Johns River and the river’s closure with the mighty Atlantic Ocean at Jacksonville.
Lake George is an average depth of 8 feet deep. The west side of the lake encompassed in the Ocala National Forest. Three major springs flow into Lake George on the west side. Salt Springs enters the northwest side of the lake through the 4.3 mile Salt Creek. Silver Glen Springs enters the lake about midway down on the west side, and multiple springs form Juniper Creek that flows into Lake George on the southwest side, with Juniper Springs at the headwater of the creek. The large island on the far north side of the lake is Drayton Island.
Topwater lures, soft jerkbaits and white spinnerbaits are some of the best choices to catch these schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because as all bass fishing goes, what’s worked today will often be ignored tomorrow.

Best known for its fantastic site fishing capabilities!


Anglers looking for largemouth action in a portion of the state that has less traffic then its counter part cities, you can find it here. Now is the time to give Lake Monroe a try!

Daytona Florida anglers don’t normally have to travel very far to find quality bass fishing. At least, they haven’t in the past. Now comes Lake Monroe things could not be a better fit.

With the entire Kissimmee Chain of lakes just Southeast and the manta Lake George due North fishing can be prolonged, in a good way. With all the feeder rivers and lakes this place has become a fish factory at times. It is also a wonderful place to conveniently have lunch on the water in the middle of the day. That’s why more than a few anglers will be giving Lake Monroe’s 9,406 acres a long look this spring.

Unlike many other central Florida lakes, Monroe has weathered the droughts and storms over the years quite nicely. As part of the St. Johns River system, it’s not going to “dry up” unless the Atlantic Ocean decides too. That’s one reason anglers are fishing it heavy in the spring. On top of that, the lake offers outstanding fishing almost all year around.

Lake Monroe mite not be on many peoples fishing list, but its on ours. It’s fun, convenient, educational and has some big BASS.

We think Lake Monroe is one of the best spring fishing spots on the St Johns River, an absolutely phenomenal fishery that has really turned on over the years. If you have not fished it all your life, then this is the best time to consider it. We put it right up there with the best central Florida has to offer during the spring spawning season.

Again a fantastic fishery with wild shiners, topwater lures, soft jerkbaits and white spinnerbaits are some of the best choices to catch these schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because as all bass fishing goes, what’s worked today will often be ignored tomorrow.
