Fishing guide Eddie BussardFlorida largemouth bassFishing Guide Eddie Bussard

It's summertime and it's hot but that doesn't mean you can't catch some nice FL Bass on artificial baits this time of year. We have had a nice east sea breeze most mornings and with us being located less then 20 miles from the east coast it's really not to bad heat wise in the early morning hours. The fish are biting on main river ledges and shell beds pretty good. Flipping heavy cover is also producing some nice fish. Had a great morning on Thursday fishing by myself for a few hours and caught 20 or so up to 7 lbs. Sorry about the picture quality as I'm not to great at doing pictures solo.

The shad spawn is still going on the first couple hours of the morning and the bass are feeding quite well. Topwater baits have worked well along with chatter baits and swim baits. For those that like to flip and punch heavy mats. Come on its that time of year to yank some Giants out of the thick stuff.

John Jr and John Sr had a great morning on live bait and went through 54 large shiners in less the 2 hrs. My good client Bill S was in for 3 days this week also and it was some unreal artificial and live bait fishing.

Best 5 on the 3rd day was 29 lbs. Bill had a number of fish in the 5 to 7 pound range each day. Folks it's summer time here in FL with air temps in the low 90's and water temps in the low 80's and as you can see from these pictures you don't have to come to Central Florida in the winter months to catch big stringers of bass.

Fishing continues to be great as you can see in the picture with this report. Lots of shad still spawning in the main river and the bass are very active during the fish few hours of the days. Large Wild Shiners are still the bait of choice but the artificial bite can be good also. I have plenty of days open in May.

Bob and Roger had and unreal morning catching fish that weighed 11.75, 8.50, and 7.75. Bob is having a replica made of his 11.75 which was 26 inches long with a 19 inch girth. Travis had a great trip catching and 8.0 and 7.0 on back to back cast. We have caught a lot of 5 to 7 pound fish the past week as well. Some days we have been able to catch 30 fish in the first couple hours of the morning. I have plenty of days open in April so if your looking for some fun fishing give us a call

Spent the weekend with our great friends Rob and Dee in from Ohio. These are the great people that open their farm to Jackie and I for some great trophy deer hunting each year. Was nice to be able to put them on some really nice fish both days. No trophy fish caught but lots of nice fish to 6 or 7 pounds each day. I still have some days open in April.

It's that time of year when the kids can have a ball here on the St Johns River. Family fun is what it's all about. Lots of fish caught the past week up to 8 1/4 lbs on main river ledges. Still have some days in April open and the fishing is just going to get better everyday with the majority of the spawn being over and these big females stuffing themselves with Shad.

I believe the Bassmaster Elite series has hit the St Johns River at the ideal time. From what I've seen the past week here on the St Johns River this is going to be one tournament to remember. The St Johns River system is at its prime and with many fish already spawned they are now out in the main river channels feeding on Shad.

With the warm weather we have had the past few weeks the Shad have arrived a little early this year and the river is erupting with big schooling bass. Don't get me wrong there are still some bass spawning and in pre spawn but many have finished and are in the post spawn mode. My client Chuck from KY caught this 8 pounder yesterday that was busing Shad in the main river channel. Best five fish for the day was around 27/28 pounds.
