Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
Lake Kissimmee is heating up
Water Temperature: 68
Water Clarity: 1 foot
Today was a pretty good day on Lake Kissimmee. Started the day out in the North Cove working the lily pads on the east shorline with a few little hits. Moved over to the extreme Northern end of the cove and started flipping the grass patches tight with black craws with red flake, 1/2 ounce slip sinker and that was the key.
Landing 11 nice slot sized bass ranging from 2 to 4 pounds.Once the waters warmed up a bit and the sun was up, we started tossing small white spinnerbaits, again working around the grass patches and thru the cuts in the grass to pick up 5 more slot sized bass.
Early afternoon we decided to take it easy and enjoy the rest of the day and freelined some wild shiners to pick up yet another 8 nice solid bass. In all it was a great day on the water. Next few days looks like we will finally get some real Florida weather so the fishing should pick up even more, almost time for that hard core gut wrenching topwater bite!!!!!! Tommorow we are set to head off to St Johns River to check it out and do a prefish for an upcoming tournament and from there we are back to Clermont Chain and back to Toho. Days are filling up fast so jump onboard.
Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!!
