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

Capt. Tim Fey
June 22, 2006
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Clermont Chain

Today we had a run out to Clermont Chain to do some scouting for up coming tournaments. Started the day out at 6am on Lake Minneola, working grass beds and docks, we were throwing rattle traps with one good thump and a miss, made a switch to a Gitem Toad in Black/red flake and picked up 3 quick bass. From there we made the move heading to Wilson and checked out the river, River looked horrible with all the spraying that was done, be careful navigating it. Lake Cook looked great as did Wilson, a couple schools were blowing water in the river between Wilson and Cook, but it wasn’t schooling activity we were looking for.

Top water bite was pretty good, Slim Dogs were the hot bait as the sun came up and got HOT fast. Best way of working this bait was to walk the dog and let her rest, we generally leave the front hook as original, and switch the back hook to a bleeding bait series, this has faired well for us, I hit Capt Al on the radio and had him come join in on the action, we nailed a good toad and she wrapped us up in deeper waters, tried working her lose but with tapping the tip on bottom, revealed the old train tracks that were dumped in the lake.

Water levels on the chain are way down, which has pushed the bass out of the marsh areas and out into more open waters, most all bass were caught in 6-8 foot of water off of submerged grass beds with one or two being picked up off of stickups.

Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!
