    INDEED Florida Bassin! He said in previous years it was numbers of fish not size. A 3lber was a "big" fish. But, he said yesterday alone he caught a 4,5 and 6 1/2. They're in the Sarasota area.

    Nice bass! Ponds and canals down here are just loaded with bass. So many communities have man-made ponds they keep stocked, it's crazy. That's a pretty big one though.

    Been fishing in one pond in Saint Lucie County that was so stocked, you could catch bass at high noon in sweltering heat right at the foot of the pond in a foot or so of water. This time of day they are usually down in the deeper parts of the pond where it's cooler, we were catching them on just about anything we put on our hook and through in the water.
