Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
Today we had a great run out on Butler Chain. With Tim and his Dad we headed straight to Lake Down trolling shiners along grass bed edges and nothing wanted to play, from there we headed into Little Lake Down, slow trolling shiners the guys managed a few good bass, which all came from the deep waters, ranging in depth from 10 to 26 feet deep.
From there we headed over to Lake Louise and worked the eel grass beds picking up a few more bass. Tim had a serious toad just absolutely hammer his shiner and a after a brief fight, it actually snapped 50 pound braided line.
With a phone call from a friend, we opted to move into Lake Isleworth to be positioned to make a fast get away as a bad storm was heading our direction. Shiners pitched to shoreline vegetation and in and around lily pads produced a few more good bass, rain started to kick in some along with the winds and the guys opted smartly to head on out.
Waters are getting low so getting the total downpour we got was great to see, the cut going from the bay into Lake Down is very shallow and getting narrow as you enter Lake Down. There is a tree, laydown in the entrance to the cut leading from Lake Islewoth to Lake Louise, so pay close attention as you motor thru there.
Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!!!!!!
