I have got some projects going here at home in NW Cape Coral so do get out enough. But try to fish for bass early morning and around sunset most every day. The bite is picking up for bass and I only have time to hit the seawalls on foot. Some are a bit skinny so probably post spawn. Caught a 3lb bass in backyard canal this morning. General area is NW 7th Street and El Dorado but I see the bass in every canal.

Looks like the larger sunfish are claiming their spawning areas and they should be on the beds all during May and beyond. But. I have not caught one yet.

Bass fishing has been slow for the past week during the full moon.

Finally picked up two this evening at 8pm (sunset) on small top water plug.

The canals in NW Cape now have some flow due to recent rains.

If you like Florida Gar??, now is the time to find them hanging out at any drain culvert with a flow.

I caught a fat 20" gar this morning on a small surface bass plug. Use a plier to remove the hooks as they thrash around when you least expect it.

Bass fishing is picking up with fall climate change.

Folks in bass boats were out after them this Sunday morning

They say they are catching a few on worms, plastics and spinnerbaits.

Not much of a bass bite in NW Cape canals but, still catching a few in the lakes.

Things should pick up early in the New Year.

I am finding some nice clear water in some of the NW Cape canals despite all of the dewatering runoff from the massive water/sewer project.

But, bass, gar, sunfish etc are hard to find.

So, back to Pine Island to search for snook in those canals. Much easier task.

Just an update.

I cannot find a bass that is willing to bite in the NW Cape canals

I have difficulty imagining where the all of them go at this time of year, mid-February.

Krash- I think you are right, the bass should be heading for their beds as the weather has been warm for weeks here in Cape Coral. I will keep working my favorite spots with stick worms and other swim baits and report back on this forum.

rak, if you haven't used it, try a "big nasty" Reports for freshwater have been highlighting that lure for some time. I think it's a long worm, like about9-10" or so.
