Ocala, Gainesville & National Forest

Loveday’s Bait & Tackle (386) 428-2841  Scott informs us that in the river they are catching a lot of redfish and flounder.  They are going after shrimp, mullet and artificial baits.  The redfish are biting on Tigers Shoals out in the flats; they are going after cut mullet.  The trout are going after live or cut mullet and top water plugs.  In the inlet they are catching redfish, flounder, snapper jacks, ladyfish and black drum. In general fishing is good.  The Tackle Box   (352) 372-1791  Gary tells us that the pan fishing is doing really well.  The bluegill are the best bet right now in freshwater.  They are biting the best in Lochloosa, the Rodman Pool and the Ocklawaha River.  They are going after grass shrimp and crickets.  There has been a really good bass bite on Rodman that should last the rest of July.  The bass are going after live baits and plastics.  The mackerel bite has lasted really well on the Gulf Coast.  They are still catching a lot of kingfish on the Gulf Coast.  Through the early part of the season the scallops are much better in the south part of Crystal River then in the north part. 

Captain Tom’s (352) 236-0872  Capt. Tom informs us that the fishing has been decent.  The river is up so look for the big catfish.  The bluegill and red breast catches have been decent.  If you want a big sport fish, look for the gars they are in the area and coming in up to 40-pounds. Baseline Tire Service (352) 245-7070  Robert tells us that summer action is good if the weather permits.  The trout are biting really well.  The cobia are doing extremely well.  Everything is biting very well, just hope that Mother Nature lets you out to play.
