Stick Marsh (just SW of Melbourne) has some really big bass! But I bet most of the guides have bass boats, not sure they can do 4.


Time to go fishin' again!

I found a guide for Davis Lake

Got a 10# l/m and panfish bigger than a dinner plate

Not sure who the guide was? But I'm sure you'll find one that'll fish this lake

Many times they use live shiners when they go after the big girls. And they charge you for them.

Id rather catch pickerel on conventional or fly than use live bait for bass.

Late to this thread, but Lake Kissimmee is closer to Orlando and has a good load of big girls.
