Butler Chain Bass fishing has been holding pretty steady. My main areas of fishing with clients has been on Lake Butler and Lake Down. Steel Shad and Redeye Shad have been producing some good numbers out here mostly in mid lake areas where we have found the grasses offshore. If you're out there early top water action has been steady before the heat hit, but we have had some mid day schooling action out on Lake Down. Slight breeze is always great, as it seems to keep the bass fishing feeding all day long. Strike King Shim E Sticks and trick worms have been great at producing bass out here.
Capt Rob Warfield covered for me on another trip as I was already booked, and took his trip out on Lakes Chase and Tibet. Working mainly offshore grasses in 8 to 10 foot of water working trick worms, brush hogs and spinner baits they had a great time boating a bunch of bass. The bass had been relating to the outside edges of the grass beds and would follow the baits out before smacking them. Working slow and being patient was the key, other than the couple very aggressive ones that smacked spinner baits, once you located those bass, it was just a matter of picking apart the grass beds and drop offs.
Fall is just around the corner, and that will mean some great bass fishing action with cooler air temperatures and cooler waters. Bass will be up feeding and we expect yet another awesome season.
