Im back in the yak after a long time because of a broken leg. Im having to wear a garbage bag on my boot, but the bass have really been cooperating. 1st time in yak last Friday, I managed 15 bass with 6 bigger than 18 inches and biggest one at 25 inches and 9 lbs! Im fishing a North Port creek. I was back out Monday for 19 bass/2gar with the biggest 2 6lbs(20) inches and 7lbs (22inches). I was back out Wednesday am and only managed 8 bass/2 gar. None were over 18 inches. There were a lot of kayakers paddling the creek and it is quite narrow, so the fishing suffered. Thursday night, I managed 5 bass and a nine inch brim. I did get locked in because I was late getting back to launch. I had to call North Port Police to let me out! How embarrassing! This am, I went to Peace river at Nav-a-gator to look for bass, but it turned out to be a snook day, so placed report in saltwater section. Hope everyone else doing well. So glad to be back!

Good to hear you are fishing again. And thanks for the great report. Seems like the bass you were catching were much bigger that the average size here in Cape Coral.

I have only fished up that way once for bass and it was years ago. A friend lived somewhere in Northport and showed me some canals near his house. Fishing was good on light green plastic worms in the spring on that trip as I recall. We were in our kayaks.

Yeah, they are bigger than usual in there. There is less fishing pressure there because its only kayak/canoes allowed and everyone I talk to there is catch and release. Im only off work for another week and half, so have been fishing a lot. I was back at Myakka yesterday am and managed 7 bass, with biggest 17 inches. I went this am to canal in North Port near my house. I hadnt even read your reply yet, but was using light green worms (that is what I have been catching them on). I fished from 0830 to 1:30 and ended up with 17 bass up to 17 inches. Most of the fish were caught working unweighted texas rigged worm over the pads and letting in sink at edges. Most were only 12-13 inches, but it was a lot of fun!
