Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Johns Lake

The past week I have had several days out on Johns Lake, some scouting trips and some with clients. The waters have held a fairly steady temperature in the mid to upper 60s. Bass overall have been hitting good, with one day of having to plug away hard for our catch, as the front rolled thru. Errol from LA worked long and hard for his catch, with a few bass coming on shiners and a few coming on Gitem Shads. The father son Trio of Kevin, Matt and Mark caught bass a Cotton Cordell Super Spots and Gitem Shad. Both of those trips showed very limited to no schooling action at all.

Today I hit Johns Lake again, in search of more bass for future trips next week. With perfect weather conditions and heavy clouds to start the morning out, the bass were schooling in mass once again. Bass were caught on a wide range of lures. Long As caught a couple, Gitem Shads caught a few, with the Gitem Toad and High Roller Chug Roller in fire tiger color getting the most action. A lot of shoreline and flooded timber was covered with spinner baits and Super Spots to end the day around 10:00 with a total for the day at 18 bass. I did spot several bass beds in different areas with no bass on them, just a lot of cruising, other than the early morning bite, most of the fish were caught in less than 3 feet of water, with most following the baits from very shallow water before hammering the bait.

The bite was definitely good and aggressive, once the winds starting blowing, the bite died off, so instead of flipping the grass beds, I headed for the ramp and called it a day, and a very productive day at that.

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