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

Capt. Tim Fey
January 14, 2007
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Butler Chain

Butler Chain as of late has been fishing pretty good, on the water Saturday saw a lot of boats doing the old run and gun in search for bass, and plenty were caught. Everything from spinner baits to 10 inch worms caught some very good quality bass with just over 16 pounds taking the prize at the end of the day. Bass were caught in just about any lake on the chain, and most seemed to be holding tight to the grass beds, previous days say the bass up in the grasses tight making you flip to get your catch, but with the weather change we had, and a slight warming, and with skies cloudy and a good breeze, the bass seemed to wander around a little more.

To show the diversity of catching bass on this great chain of lakes, bass were not only caught in and around grass beds, but a few were pulled from 20 foot + water depths, marking fish in deep waters and using jigs was the ticket in that situation. Bass have been spotted on beds, and schooling action has been very early morning, disappearing just as fast as they surfaced, with a few 5 pound class being caught in these schools. The top producing lake seemed to be Lake Down, working the grass edges, close to deeper water drop offs and slow rolling all white spinner baits.

Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing!
