in central Florida. I talked to my fishing buddy last night who is retired and spends the winters in central Florida. He was fishing this past weekend near Clearwater and saw many big bass on their beds. Went back home to Astatula and fished the pond in the back of the development. He pulled out an 8 pound bass and lost two other big ones. He is fishing the pond today with Fireline instead of mono. Spring is on its way!!!!
