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

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

Butler Chain

This past week I have had a few trips out on Butler Chain. Waters are still holding good, and temps were running surprisingly in the mid to upper 70ís which has been good for the fishing. No real top water action to speak of, but did come across some good schooling activity. When the schoolers were up, the Steel Shads seemed to be the best way to catch them. Lakes that were worked this past week were, Lake Butler, Lake Chase, Lake Sheen and Lake Pocket. Hot bait for the week has been the Gitem K.O. in Dark Mellon.

Texas rigged worked good, but wacky rigged was the hot ticket, rigged up with a 3/0 circle hook has caught a lot of bass for us this week. Working the outside edges of grass beds, small holes in the beds, and scattered grasses with drop offs close by produced the best bass. With the big bass coming in at 5.6 pounds.

Steel Shad have produced a few good bass worked in and around deeper drop offs, in 12 to 18 foot of water, worked slow with an occasional jigging motion has been the key to getting hit.

Till my next report, Tight lines and great fishing!
