With the spawning season in full swing across much of the Sunshine State, Florida’s TrophyCatch program is serving as a powerful incentive for anglers to release giant female largemouth bass. The program, now in its third season, offers prizes for anglers who catch, document and release bass that weigh 8 pounds or more. There are three levels of qualification – Lunker (8-9.99 pounds), Trophy (10-12.99) and Hall of Fame (13 or greater) – and each offers a substantial list of prizes.
Flipping and pitching are dominant ways to catch giant Florida bass, but an array of techniques paid off during the Southern Open on Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.
