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

Capt. Tim Fey
September 2, 2007
Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report

Lake Kissimmee, Starke Lake, Butler Chain

The last 3 weeks has seen us out on Butler Chain, Lake Kissimmee and Starke Lake.

Butler Chain has been producing some good catches working deeper waters. Lake Down has been the best producer when working these deep water drop offs, with the Storm WildEye Minnow catching the numbers from 2 to 3 pounds. If you want the top water action on Butler Chain, getting there early has been the big key, working buzz baits and Toads from shoreline out to 7 foot of water has seen some good action. Big key has been to be in or around some good hydrilla or eel grass.

Lake Kissimmee saw some good top water action very early as safe light hit. Outside edges of grass beds and isolated reed stands were the best producers. Once the top water bite shut off, it was a lot of flipping with bug type baits and senko type baits getting the majority of the bass. Water surface temperatures were running in the upper 80ís to low 90ís, so once the sun hit full force, key was to fish as slow as possible.

Starke Lake has been a good lake for catching numbers of school sized bass. This lake is loaded with bass in the 2 pound class and can be a good place to fish for some steady action. Good pattern has been hitting mid lake and working shallow diving crank baits, Steel Shads and small swim baits. Grass beds in the heat of the day have held some good catches working T-rigged and wacky rigged senko type baits, basically dead sticking them. Flipping bite has been good using the Gitem AKA and the Gitem Bug. With roughly one more month of heat, please remember to drink a lot of water and keep that sun screen close by.
