I used to fish Santa Fe in Alachua with my dad and grampa about 15 years ago. My dad and I bought a G3 bass boat a few months ago and I think I am going to take the trip down there this Saturday and see what I can do. After looking at Google Map I think I want to try the North end of the little lake where that natural spring is and toss some top water frogs around the docks and what looks like lilly pads or grass lines. Then maybe hit the pass and throw some soft plastics a little off the shore line around the points of the pass.
I knew a guy from FBN that fished Santa Fe all the time. . He caught a bunch of big bass there off deep water brush piles using deep water crankbaits, and jigs. He swore it was a constant producer for big bass. If pounding the bank doesn't work out, look for off shore isolated clumps in 10 to 20 feet of water. Good luck and let us know how you do.
