Orlando, FL - Lake Toho, Clermont Chain & The Kissimmee Chain

Capt. Tim Fey
June 8, 2006
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Butler Chain and Johns Lake

Week ending June 3rd

We had a few days where we were able to get out and spend some time working drop shot baits from Gitem Baits, and toss around a few lures that just donít get used a lot, or are not talked about much.

We started out with a run to Butler Chain, bass had moved off the grass edges and were suspended in deeper water, so the perfect bait of choice was a drop shot.

Working in 14 foot of water on various lakes we did manage to get a few good keepers.

We had also tossed around a small swim bait which did very good, allowing it to fall to the bottom before swimming it back was the key to catching the quality bass.

Johnís Lake

With the schooling activity slowing drastically, the deeper water bite and flipping bite has been the way to out here. Flipping Gitem Bugs in junebug has been very productive. Bass have been holding tight in the pockets and with the cleaner waters here, a line switch from braids to 15 pound test Berkley Big Game has been the ticket. Spinner baits and a Mepps Minnow worked on the outside edges of grass beds has produced a few good catches, with a very early morning bite on Pop Rís and spooks. Something t remember on both Johnís Lake and Butler Chain, these are NOT your typical Florida waters, these bodies of water are much cleaner, which dictates when using lures you make those longer casts and focus more on the mono lines and try to avoid the braided lines. With the dog days of summer here, a slower presentation will be the definite way to go.

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