Orlando fishing on Butler Chain of LakesThe Orlando fishing at Butler Chains of lakes (4,927 acres) are all very similar in that they are relatively deep for Florida lakes (20 – 40 foot holes), have abundant submerged vegetation and good largemouth bass fisheries. This 4,720-acre chain is made up of 11 interconnected lakes. Boat access is available only at one county ramp (Lake Isleworth just south of Windermere) and public bank access is almost non-existent. Orange County charges a launch fee at the Lake Isleworth ramp and the ramp is not open after dark.

The R.D. Keene ramp at Lake Isleworth (Butler Chain) costs per day or a year for use of the ramp.
Windermere Chain of lakes is known for its excellent largemouth bass fishing. Most successful bass anglers pay attention to the bottom contours of the lakes offshore structure where 4- to 5-pound bass are commonly produced. Live shiners free-lined over grass edges, humps, ledges, and drop‑offs adjacent to spawning flats is one method to consistently catch quality bass in the winter/spring (Try Lake Butler). Windermere chain also have relatively unknown and unstudied black crappie(speck), bluegill and redear sunfish (shellcracker) populations [READ MORE…] or reserve your trip below.

Orlando bass fishing on Conway Chain of LakesThe Orlando fishing in Conway Chain of Lakes has four interconnected pools or lakes (east, west, middle and south) in the Disney or South Orlando area that are collectively referred to as Lake Conway or the Conway chain of lakes. The larger of the lakes, has only two public boat ramps is located off Hoffner Avenue, two blocks east of Orange Avenue (SR 527). Like the Butler Chain, public bank access is, for all practical purposes, non-existent. This Orlando bass fishing chain has nearly 1,800 acres of clear water and hard sand bottom, with beds of peppergrass, eelgrass and hydrilla scattered offshore. Largemouth bass fishing is good in every season, even summer when the bass are often schooling on shad in the open water.

One of Conway’s “claims to fame” is its schooling bass. In fact, schooling activity often seems to be best during per-cold front conditions, and summer feeds with 10 to 15 mph winds. Schooling bass can be found generally by just watching for surface activity or by watching birds feeding. Most of the schooling will happen in offshore areas, but points with deep water access are also great areas. Jigging spoons, topwater lures, soft jerkbaits and white spinnerbaits are some of the best choices to catch these schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because as all bass fishing goes, what’s worked today will often be ignored tomorrow.

Orlando fishing on Johns LakeJohns Lake is located in North Park, just northwest of Orlando, Florida. Historically, Johns Lake produces bass over 10 pounds, rated in the top 10 lakes in Florida. Recently the lake has gone through some low water conditions and it remains to be producing very well. Largemouth bass are the primary species here but Crappie and Bluegill are also present. The lake provides a lot of structure with weed beds and can be readily fished from shore in some areas.

The John’s Lake boat ramp is about 6 miles east of Clermont on Highway 50. Even with the development of most of the shoreline and it’s close proximity to Orlando, this lake produces excellent bass fishing with little to no pressure during the week. Everything about this lake is right for bass. The water color is slightly stained, which is good thing for Florida. There are several rocky structures, coral rock type bottom throughout the lake and there is adequate cover despite the building of high dollar homes around the shoreline. Water levels fluctuate, but always return to normal.

The State of Florida restocked the lake with 500,000 bass fingerlings in the early 2000’s. These bass are now reaching trophy size and the lake is continuing its reputation as one great bass fishery. [READ MORE…] or reserve your trip below.

Orlando Fishing on Lake ApopkaLake Apopka is located west of Orlando and mostly in Orange County, but the Lake Apopka Map western part is in Lake County. Lake Apopka is the fourth largest lake in Florida and one of the largest in the United States. It forms the headwaters of the Harris chain of lakes and the Ocklawaha River and still considered Orlando bass fishing..

It is over 30,000 acres in size, with a drainage basin of 119,773 acres. Approximately 30% of the lake is fed by the Gourd Neck Spring; the remainder is direct rainfall and stormwater runoff. The only surface water outflow from Lake Apopka is the Apopka-Beauclair Canal, which flows north into Lake Beauclair and the Harris chain. Discharge from the canal is controlled at the Apopka-Beauclair Lock and Dam, which influences lake stage. From Lake Dora, water flows into Lake Eustis, then into Lake Griffin and then northward into the Ocklawaha River, which flows into the St. Johns River.

Lake Apopka–Magnolia Park (#67)
Head south on U.S. 441 south of Zellwood and turn right on CR 437 in Plymouth. Follow CR 437 for 5.2 miles to Magnolia Park. Turn right into park entrance and follow road to ramp. [READ MORE…] or reserve your trip below.

Orlando fishing Lake OkeechobeeLake Okeechobee is the most “famous big bass lake” in Florida, well-known for the quantity and quality of bass the lake produces on a regular basis. This reputation on Lake Okeechobee has continued for many years as producing the biggest and best large-mouth bass fishing in Central Florida. On Okeechobee the two primary ways to fish are with artificial lures or wild shiners. Orlando Bass fishing on the “Big O” with wild shiners is the preferred bait for many anglers for trophy bass. It just happens to be the natural food that they feed on daily. Wild Shiner fishing became very popular many years ago when anglers fishing Okeechobee for largemouth bass would see there feeding habits. It has become the increasingly popular choice because once you’ve experienced this style of fishing you’ll quickly recognized that it’s much more than just sitting and watching bobbers. We have a special kind of tackle and a secret way of hooking and rigging shiners.

We’re not telling you how at this time, but we’ll be happy to teach you while you are out with us. Like some of you, we also prefer to fish with artificial lures as much as possible. When fishing Lake Okeechobee with artificial, you will have the choice of spinning, baitcasting or fly fishing. flipping and pitching on Okeechobee READ MORE… or reserve your trip below.

Left all the research up to my 14 year old son! Capt Leech was the best! We let him guide us and it was perfect! He called us to confirm 24 hours before the trip and he advised us on what we should be doing! It couldn't have been any better. Good man, great guide w/ a wealth of knowledge not just on Lake Toho but fishing! We spotted an amazing symbol of Freedom! Bald Eagle! Truly couldn't thank you him enough. We can't wait to come back!
