Orlando Area Lakes and Ponds

Tip of the week 

Bass fishing has slowed with the cold weather. Winter pattern has finally started with Bass seeking deeper and warmer water. Mornings are slow and evenings are better. Deep flies like couser minnows will drop to the places that bass are hunkering. Structure near deep water is a best bet.

Seven-day forecast 

Shad fishing on the St. Johns has begun and should improve through the week. The St Johns River is extemely low. This river is highly dependant on rainfall. Wade of fish from the the kayak. Local lakes are high or above average from the past wet season with moderately tannic water.
