if you are fishing from shore..... do a lot of scouting.. Google earth or Bing maps is your best bet at finding lakes/ponds in your
area.. I live over in the Casselberry area and I'm always finding new areas to hit..... a good thing to also hit are any water around
the roads over there.... the only bad thing about your area is that a lot of it is fence in...... make sure to look for signs before you
try any area (No fishing signs).... or you can always do what we do... Fish it at nite...
another area that holds a lot of nice bass are Golf courses..... but most will run you off... again hit them at nite..
and if you are going to fish at nite.... try to do it with a friend... incase something happens..
Bug spray will be your best friend..... Good luck:wink

different lures for different areas.... if you don't have backup plans, then more then likely you are doomed to fail...
I start out with worms close to the shoreline and watch what the bass are telling me... if they are busting the topwater than I go to
a topwater bait or a slow sinking worm and see what happens... if they are busting the shoreline and blowing everything up than I go
to the frog and fish it hard.... but YOU have to also be able to see what's going on around you... I have seen crawdads moving around
the shore line.... I quickly change to a brown color soft bait and BAM it was on.... I notice frogs jumping around and I change over to the
frog.... but always go with some type of mindset .....
I carry three rods with different lures and work an area with each one..... when you try to FORCE them to eat something they aren't
after... You are more likely to fail... I change out lures a lot during the nite and once I get the small ones to hit and know they are in
the mood.... I fall back to my old motto> GO BIG OR GO HOME :grin i'm not out there to load up on small bass
and i'm okay without catching anything... but the ones I do catch...OH SON!!!!! :wink
My friends can't understand me....but they are only there to catch fish...i'm there to catch a lifetime bass...:cool
I also have the same mindset when it comes to saltwater.... don't get me wrong I love having fun with the little
guys.... but i'm there for their Mom...:hail:hail:hail
WHOO HOO> Go BIG or go HOME....that's my motto...
