Does anyone have interest in meeting lake boat ramps for some informal fishing outings?  I know with the COVID stuff going on we would need to be cautious.  

I was thinking that once or twice a month, anyone with a boat or access to a boat (i.e. rental, boat clubs) could meetup at a predetermined boat ramp to do a few hours of fishing.  We could share phone numbers so as the morning progressed we could share text information about what was working.  And then for anyone that wanted to we could bring chairs and a lunch to sit around after fishing to discuss tactics, color options, etc.

My thought is to get together with fellow club members to share knowledge about fishing.  As for locations, I am thinking that lakes within a 50 mile radius of The Villages would be possible.  As for boats, I think anything from Kayaks to Pontoons would work.

Let me know if you would be interested in something like this.

I'm fairly new to fishing in Florida and I am looking to explore some new areas with my new boat!

Gene,

I’m also interested. Just moved to TV 1 months ago and don’t have a kayak or boat yet. 

So I’d be able to go where rentals are available or buddy up on a boat if someone wants company. I’ll buy the gas!

OK gang, since Phillip already has boat reserved for next Tuesday, September 22nd on Lake Harris, lets make Tuesday morning be our first "Informal Fishing Outing"!  Boat captains (owners/operators) check you calendar to see if next Tuesday morning would work for you.

Tim Doyle, that sounds great.  If this Tuesday, the 22nd, works for you come on out and join the fun.  Right now we have two boats for sure, my bass boat and a pontoon boat with Philip Beitel as Captain.  There are three other boats that may also be joining this informal outing.

Boat captains, if you have any open seats on your boat that you would like to fill, please post your information here.

Non-boat owners, as you can see Philip posted that he has some room on his boat so contact him if you want to join the fun Tuesday morning.

I just reserved a bass boat for 9/22 out of Venetian Cove on Lake Harris. From Maine and new to Florida fishing. Looking for someone experienced fishing these lakes.  Give me a call 207-212-5960.  Trying to find out how early I can get. They have let me out at 7am before.
Looking forward to a great day of fishing.

Tuesday Plans
  • Group Text - if each boat captain will provide me their cell phone numbers I will setup a group text for our outing.  My thoughts are that each boat can report updates on catches and what seems to be working throughout the morning.
  • Hitting the water - I plan to be at the boat ramp by the Leesburg Boat Club at 7 AM.  My goal will be to head out on the water around 7:30 AM.
  • Lunch/Recap - lets get together at 12:30 PM at Ski Beach (at the entrance to Venetian Cove) for lunch and a recap of fishing results.  There are covered picnic tables or we can just anchor our boats off Ski Beach.
  • After lunch fishing - for those that want to go back out
Logistics
  • Everyone - Bring your own lunch stuff
  • Boat Captains - if you have any space available on your boat let me know and I will have the non-owners contact you directly. 
  • If you need directions please let me know.
  • I will be hanging out at the ramp from 7 to 7:30 to share ideas of places to fish or to learn from those that know the lake better than i do!
My cell phone number is 206-618-8989.  Feel free to give me a call if you have additional questions.
