Hello all,

I know people don't like to give away their favorite fishing spots, but I am really struggling here. I can't seem to find a place for good bank fishing (I do not own a boat). I have used a couple boat ramps in the Dunnellon area, but it seems to take a couple hours for a 1/2 dozen Bluegill.

I know of Rodman's Dam, but I want something closer to the SW part of Ocala. I also know many people say the forest, but that is still a bit of a drive and I have no clue where to go in the forest. I don't need much, just a place I can go to for a couple hours when I want an escape and maybe come home with a dozen or so Bluegill (or anything else that is edible and can be caught from the bank).

Any advice?

~John~

What about the intersection of the Oklawaha river and Hwy 200 on the Citrus/Marion border? There is a restaurant called Stumpnokers there. I don't know how good the fishing is or where you can fish. Might be worth looking into.

Thank you for the suggestion. I have been there (this is the Withlacoochee, right?), but it is close enough to the boat ramp I have used anyway. Unless I talk to the restaurant managers, I am also not sure if they would frown on fishing from their bank. I have eaten there a few times, though. Take care.

Oops, got rivers mixed up. It is the Withlacoochee like you said. Best wishes.

You're having pretty good luck catching a half dozen in a couple hours from shore.....go to some bait shops and ask the owners.....a small jon boat would do the trick, tho....
