Johns Lake and Butler Chain Aug 2009 Bass and Saltwater fishing Report

Orlando Bass Fishing Guides


flounderAugust we did a little switch up, we did some fishing on Johns Lake and Butler Chain and had some pretty good trips on both bodies of water. Bass for the most part were holding tight to cover after we had some early morning schooling action on both bodies of water. Gitem curly 7’s in Florida grass and junebug seemed to be the baits that were on fire for us.


The switch up comes with us doing several saltwater trips which have been producing some great fishing action with us catching a wide range of species. Summer time has always been a great time for some serious saltwater fishing and as usual the fish have responded with every run to the coast. Port Canaveral has been one of our favorite areas to fish saltwater and our runs out there have been producing some good grey snapper, mutton snapper, blues, flounder a few trout and some slot redfish.

snapperLive shrimp has been the main bait to keep the action steady and the rods bending, but the DOA Shrimp and the steel shad have had their moments out there catching the reds and the trout for us. Shrimp rigs we have been using a 1/0 circle hook with a split shot weight around docks and bridges to get our catch, with us catching between 30 and 40 per trip, this makes for a very good day of fishing.

If anyone is interested in saltwater trips, just send me an e-mail or call as this action will remain steady thru the rest of summer.
