Porko's Midnight Madness is BACK! Bob Smith 06/05/20 11:52 PM
Like Stephen said, "Looks like we're fishing again!!" That includes Porko's Midnight Madness tournaments out of Gatewood. Our next event will be on Saturday night, June 13, 2020. I will be there around 5:30Pm to start taking entry fees. The tournament will run from 7PM till 2AM. To keep the Rangers happy please respect the social distancing spread and try to keep at least 6' between you and the others for signing in and for the weigh in. I will have some hand sanitizer available for those who feel the need to use it.

The fees are $50 ($10 to Big Bass and $40 to a 1-5 payback, more than 25 entries will pay 6 places no matter what) and an optional $10 Side Pot, heaviest sack wins all.

5 fish limit, 12" minimum, one dead fish allowed, Big Bass must be alive. I will be watching fish mortality this summer, if we start seeing a lot of dead fish we will reduce the limit to 3 fish instead of 5.

No live bait

All tournaments are held out of Bartow County Gatewood Park: Exit GA-20 exit on I-75 and turn east, Turn south at the light (right from I-75, left from Canton) next to Wendy's onto Spur 20. Go about 2 miles and turn left on Jim Knight Rd., Turn left when it dead ends at the Bartow Beach Rd. (right in front of the COE maintenance yard). Stay on the Beach road and stay to the left past the park Manager's house and follow the signs to the left to the boat ramp. Please remember the launch fee is a Bartow County fee and not a CoE launch fee, there is a booth at the park entrance now with an attendant, you pay for the day or buy an annual pass.

Schedule for this summer is as follows:

Jun 13th and Jun 27th

Jul 11th and Jul 25th

Aug 8th and Aug 22nd

Sep 12th and Sep 24th

Looking forward to seeing you guys!!!!

Inshore Fishing Jump to new posts
May 2020 Florida New Smyrna Daytona Beach Mosquito Lagoon CaptMikeSavedow 05/23/20 02:55 PM
Finally starting to get a few charters again after a slow month of social distancing, locals, Central Florida residents, and people with local properties in the family have been returning to visit the East Central Florida coast. In spring the first of the migratory species make their way north along the east coast of Florida after spending the winter further south, schooling inshore coastal migrating fish include Bluefish, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, they travel in schools following the temperature increase, so the exact timing is different each year. One of the most exciting of the sub tropical species which come north in spring are Tarpon, occasional full grown Silver Kings from 50 to 100 lbs., but most of the intracoastal fish are younger in the 10 to 30 lb. Range. Denton and friends from Eustis, FL were out with me catching many different backcountry species when this 38” Tarpon crashed the party and was landed after a good fight …………...

On another recent trip Rudy was throwing an artificial soft plastic and caught a fun size Snook with a few jumps during the battle ……………

Ashley from Minnesota caught a nice Pompano along with Jack Crevalle and other fish species on a mixed bag variety trip in the back waters …………….

One of the spring fish that can come out of the ocean into the intracoastal waterway on their way north are Spanish Mackerel like this toothy fish caught by Paxton from Apopka FL under the big bridge in New Smyrna Beach on the first cast this morning ……………..

Long time repeat client Steve from Kansas City caught a fun size Black Drum a little while back along with lots of other species ……………….

Bass Fishing Jump to new posts
Re: New here Bob Smith 05/11/20 03:36 PM
Personally, I moved over to North Georgia in 2007 from the DFW area. I haven't been to Murray yet (on the bucket list). In fact I don't know what the ratio of spots to LMB are on Murray. Lake Hartwell, on the Georgia/SC border is loaded with spots. They tend to like the rocky banks more in the summer, and like finesse baits, small jigs, ned rigs, shakey heads, small swimbaits, drop shot during the summer months (at night, however, they will hammer a 3/4 oz Black/red or Black/blue spinner bait with a huge colorado blade and twin tail grub (most any dark color will do). As the water temps rise they will be a little deeper (10'-25' not uncommon). the cleaner the water the more natural colors for the soft plastics and jigs (tip... the soft plastics work night and day - same baits).
Hope this gets you going in the right direction?
