Orlando Area Lakes and Ponds

Tip of the week 

?The popper bite is on. Bass are taking bigger (2sz) and smaller (6sz) poppers in white, yellow and chartreuse. Slow the movement,and be patient. The Bass are farther into the weeds as water is high on most lakes. The gizzard shad are schooling in the middle of our lakes. Bass will crash through these schools. The shad will gather, druken near the surface-it will be obvious, and the action will continue till the bass catch up with them. It will disappear and reappear elsewhere in the lake, usually nearby. Cast flies around the edges of these schools. Ideal flies are subsurface minnow patterns, white, size 2-6 (about 2" to 3").

Seven-day forecast 

With an amazing forecast for the week, fishing should continue to be excellent. Low temps are beginning to drop to the low 60s. Some anglers have started fishing Crappie (Specs) at night. Water temps need to be below 70 for consistent schooling.
