Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

John's Lake

Johnís Lake week ending May 21st

This past week has had us out on Johnís lake with a mix of scouting trips and guide trips.

With the waters still dropping, the bass have pulled more to the outside edges of the grass beds and deeper water grass beds. Spinner baits in all white or Gold have been very good producers. Storm swim baits have seen some good action on the early morning schoolers in the cuts. As the day warmed, the flipping bite in and around the docks have produced some very nice bass as well.

Mixing the lures up a bit to see how the bass would react was a good bet, with a #5 Mepps Minnow picking up a few good bass as well as a Long A and rattle traps. Most of the flipping baits were the Gitem Bugs and the Gitem Shad. Top bait producer in and around the docks was the Gitem K.O in Red Bass, this has been a great color out here.

Shiner bite is still going good, if the schoolers donít take a freelined shiner, use a bobber and set it to 8-12 inches early on in the day, and late afternoon, pinch on a small slit shot to drop the bait just a little deeper, surface schooling may be over but the bass are still there, suspended in deeper water.

With the air temps rising and the dog days of summer fast approaching, the early bite is going to be key if you want good topwater action, then the bite will slow down but with the switch to slow rolled spinnerbaits, and senko type baits, you will still get some very good quality fish.

Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!!!!
