We hope you enjoy viewing the entire website. It is primarily about fishing for bass, bluegill, crappie, snakehead, peacock bass and catfish in Clear Lake, located in Northern Orlando about 6 miles from the Bass Pro Shops.
Clear Lake Fishing
The predominant fish species in the lake are: Largemouth Bass; Catfish; Crappie; Bluegill and the ever popular fishing species.
The Clear Lake fishing enjoyment and art of fishing is simply second to none, there are over 3300 lakes in the Central Florida area. The City maintains high standards of fishing ethics and insists its anglers to comply with all state and local fishing regulations. The County is also dedicated to service in the community and supports several fishing related projects thereby enhancing the quality of fishing in Clear Lake for all.
Largemouth Bass are the most popular species pursued by anglers at Clear Lake. Minnow, cricket and worm fishing is a primary for panfish in December, January and February. Fish minnows with split shot on the bottom or under slip bobbers.
The pre-spawn bite begins in late February or early March. Plastic worms, swim baits, crankbaits and spinnerbaits will all work. When the fish go on the beds in the spring, anglers toss out Senkos and a variety of plastics. Summer is the time to fish frogs and top water lures early and late in the day and jigs deep during the day. When the fall arrives, the bass become aggressive and anglers can fool them with spinnerbaits, rip baits and a variety of plastics.
Black Crappie provide year round action at Clear Lake. Fish mini jigs and small minnows around brush and rockpiles throughout the year. Use your electronics to fish bait and schools of crappie.
The added Catfish provide a fun time fishing at the lake. Late spring, summer and fall, when water temperatures are warm, provide the most consistent action. Use live minnows, crayfish and cut bait along the shoreline.
Bluegill offer great fishing in the spring and summer. Toss worms, redworms and jigs around docks for the panfish.
