Orlando Bass Fishing

Capt. Tim Fey
September 17, 2008
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

The first week of September has seen some good bass fishing action, as well as some tough action. For the most part, the action has been pretty steady. Shiner bite has actually been very slow, but the artificial bite has been good. Johns Lake has been a good early morning bite using spinner baits and trick worms. Deer Island cut has produced some descent numbers, but the size has not been to my liking.
We did make a venture out to Lake Rosalie, one to check water levels after the tropical storm, and to alo see how the bite was doing out there. We started the day out with Rich tossing some shiners around, and not surprised, there was no action on the in the first hour, so we switched Rich to some trick worms.
There was scattered success working grass lines catching one here one there kinda deal as we kept moving around. Working cuts where we spotted flowing water was the big key here, getting into the creek was a huge key. Bass were holding tight on the backside of the flow and hammering the trick worms, and brush hogs. Two areas in the creek there were trees blocking us, but with a little maneuvering, we made it over them and kept on catching bass. Lake did ok for us, catching 4 bass, but the creek was the place, as we boated 10 more bass there.
Butler Chain water levels are great, and the bass fishing has been holding steady. With all the new waters from the tropical storm, bass have a lot more new areas to roam and feed. Several good bass were caught on grass edges in 12 feet of water, with once again trick worms, and wacky rigged senkos getting the bulk of the action. Some bass have been coming from docks and flooded timber as well.
It is still very hot out on the waters, so please be sure to drink a lot of water, and use a lot of sun screen
