Central Florida Bass Fishing has been doing very good as of late. Cooler air temperatures as well as cooler water temperatures have made for some very good bass fishing in Florida.Butler Chain of Lakes has been a great place to bass fish, with the bass starting to school up and move into shallower waters this has made for some very fun action. Live wild shiners have been doing very good out here. Drop offs are still producing some good numbers as well as some quality size bass. Main areas that have been producing have been the areas with some good weed lines and hydrilla patches that are scattered around the chain.
Artificial lures are doing great out here. Skipping senko type baits and flukes under docks are producing some good numbers and size. Spinner baits and Strike King Red Eye Shads are catching the bass in a big way right now. The bass have been very aggressive hitting these lures as they are now chasing bait fish around as they start to fatten up for the upcoming spawning season.
Main lakes that have been fishing best for us have been Lake Chase, Lake Butler which is the main lake and Lake Tibet. These three lakes have some of the best vegetation on them and they have been holding some of the best action as of late. My trips out here have been producing some good numbers and quality size. Capt. Rob Warfield has also been getting some quality action as seen in these pictures with two youngsters holding some nice bass they caught using artificial lures. Nothing more satisfying than seeing youngsters catching bass, whether it be with live bait or artificial baits, this is what it is all about.
Remember, when you go bass fishing, take your child with you, it’s a great way to spend some quality time together and grow that bond between you and your children. Special thanks to Capt Warfield, who is also my tournament partner. We have been fishing together for over 15 years now, and he helps me out with multi boat trips and corporate trips as well as picking up trips if I am already booked.
