Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
I am so thankful that we did just that with all the tropical storms and hurricians amist in the past 2 weeks. I pray for those whom were less fortunate. Those as i write, in Texas and where Ike is headed. Those in northeast Florida still with homes flooded along the St. Johns.
We are a strong nation and will survive, as we give credit to those who, in time of need, come forth to help each other. We are Americans
Lake Toho has seen an increase in our water over the past summer, and the corp. of engineers have done a fantastic job of keeping control.
It has also made for some great fishing, with higher and cooler water. With plenty of oxygen from the constant flow.
Hydrill has taken over in some places, such as goblets cove and south at whaleys and browns point. But if you do your home work and get out on the water, you can fine some nice clean area's where there is no hydrilla. Only clean, clear water with nice stands of kissimmee grass.
These area's are holding good pockets of bass.
The mouth of the canal on the south side of Crypress is also holding good fish.
Water surface temp is holding around 83, but we are about a foot deeper this past 3 weeks and with lots of flow, these gals are taking advantage of that opportunity. Just thank what Oct and Nov. will be like.
I have to give my thoughts about the up-coming election, I am fed up with Ch eves and the other oil countries, as well as oil companies, who at this moment are jacking the price of gas to those who are suffering from Ike. This is not American and our Congress is letting them get away with it. Its funny than congress came back to vote to increase their pay scale, but refuse to do anything about whats happening to us, They have the wait and see attitude for after the nov. election. We need out independence from oil and china and we need to revert back to a manufacturing country, sending our good to them.
