  4. I've been living in & fishing for bass, especially giant trophy bass here in central Florida, since 1969. Today, I fish now more than ever at the Stick Marsh/Farm 13 nearby my home. In the gnarly stump fields, eel grass & hydrilla, I much prefer to use 2 Lew's Super Duty baitcasters for large wild shiners, with two 7'6" flippin' sticks, and STRICTLY Berkley/Trilene Big Game mono in 25 lb test. YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS SET-UP FOR THE GIANT BASS HERE IN THIS HEAVY COVER. Most of these monster bass of 8 to 14 lbs ( some even bigger ) here, WILL horse you down into the wood & wrap you up, regardless of line type or test. That's why I prefer the Lew's Super Duty baitcaster & flippin' stick to keep those giant bass UP & OUT of all the wood & thick grass. The Berkley Big Game 25 lb test mono is tough as nails, and IT FLOATS LONGER, keeping your line out of trouble longer, while soaking big shiners under a float. If your line SINKS across the water while waiting on the bite, all that line WILL already be down among all the stumps & laydowns…….thus the need for good heavy mono THAT FLOATS LONGER. Most Florida trophy bass guides use the same line for live wild shiners, for the very same reason. Trust me. I fish the large wild shiners here from mid November all the way through April. The rest of the year, I use only lures. After years of trial & error, the above twin set ups have served me the best for these demanding conditions. To date, I have four 12 lb bass, thirteen more bass that topped 10 lbs, several 9's, and I literally can't count the 7 & 8 lb'ers I've caught. I am truly BLESSED to live close to the Stick Marsh. I hardly fish for bass anywhere else…………no need to………LOL. Tight Lines.
