Jolly Gator Bass Series Begins in March

March always starts our new season on the first Tuesday after Daylight Savings time, March 12th this year. This tournament has been running for so many years that we have lost track, Orlando Coastal Angler Magazine’s staff has been involved for 10 years now. Co-publisher Phil Wolf is the official Weighmaster for these events – pics and results can be reviewed on the Coastal Angler Magazine Orlando Face Book page.

Thursday March 7th at 6:30 pm, Jolly Gator Fish Camp Bar & Grill will be the host for our annual Team registration meeting as well as the weigh-in site for all events next to CS Lee Park and ramp. These events are open to all 2 angler teams, $40 fee per event. Events are every Tuesday evening and one Saturday per month until our end of year Classic in mid-August. Pay-out is one place per 7 boats and $10 per boat for Big-Bass of the event. Teams that finish in the top 10 in points or win an event and fish or pay for at least 20 events all qualify for the end of season Classic. The team with the most points at the end of our season along with the “Big Bass” of year will also win big bucks for their efforts. This Central Florida Bass Series has grown to be one the areas’ largest averaging over 25 boats per event the last several seasons.

Over $10,000 bucks was paid out at last year’s Classic Event! Some of the area’s best anglers fish with us, so if you think you want to give it a shot come and join us for a weekly event. All Tuesday fishing starts at 5pm and launches at CS Lee Park next to Jolly Gator just east of Sanford on SR 46 at the St Johns River Bridge. Saturday events start at safe light till 2pm.

The public is welcome at our events to watch our anglers bring their daily catches to the scales. Jolly Gator restaurant recently renovated after the flood has great food and some of the coldest beer in town. Come join us for our events and become a regular fan.
