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

Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Butler Chain

Butler Chain has been fishing pretty good, with a stable weather pattern, either extended warm or extended cooler periods, the bass have been active and feeding pretty good. Two of the top producers over the past 2 weeks has been Lakes Chase and Down. Grass beds have been the best way to catch the bass, some days it has been a case of working the outside edges and other days it has been working the inside of the grass beds, scattered and or thinned out grass beds have produced some good quality bass to 4 pounds slow rolling spinner baits through them, as well as using Gitem Shads or K.Os worked very slow.

Butler Chain bite has seemed to be a little better closer to high noon, with the sun warming the waters, with surface temperatures reaching 64 degrees. I have been noticing more bass beds showing up, but with fronts coming in, they have been getting pushed away from the beds for the most part, with several bass being caught that have already spawned, colder mornings and mornings right now in general have dictated a much slower presentation until the sun warms the waters, best action has come in waters ranging from 6 to 12 feet deep. For the beds that are currently empty, working the general area slow with anything from lizards to Senko type baits has yielded some good solid buck bass, as they are cruising the areas.

Last week I did come across some good schooling action on Lake Down, and a few days with warmer air temperature a few bass were pick up off beds, with most in the 4 to 5 pound range, with on bass not wanting to touch anything that was worked by her, until I tied on a HighRoller 5 inch Fingerling in the trout pattern, as soon as this lure made contact with the bass bed, the gal turned and pounced it without any hesitation.

Cooler weather this weekend, so slow down and be patient. Till my next report,

Tight lines and great fishing!
