The Delights of Orlando Bass Fishing

By: Daniel Eggertsen

According to tourism sources in the area, Orlando, Florida is known as the bass fishing capital of the word. There is no doubt that the bass fishing facilities are second to none and the area has several lakes that are swarming with bass just ready to bite, but how exactly do you go about catching a bass in Orlando? There are several steps to take if you want to go home extremely satisfied with your bass fishing trip and they are as follows:

Find the Right Location

There are a number of lakes for you to choose from, and the majority of them provide excellent facilities for bass fishing. However, you should check out two particular chains of lakes. They are the Great Butler lakes and the Kissimmee lakes. Both provide excellent and convenient locations for bass fishing. You can have a great day out there as well as fishing until your heart's content! The Great Butler lakes are just a few minutes away from the Orlando theme parks in Windemere. The lakes are 40ft at the deepest point and are full or great holes, which makes bass fishing there a challenge. However, the waters are extremely clean so this does make it slightly easier! The bass fishing experience there is truly amazing and should be sampled!

The Kissimmee lakes consist of Lake Kissimmee, Lake Toho, Lake Cypress and Lake Hatchinea. They are famous the world over amongst bass fishing enthusiasts as a result of the great location, which is just 20 minutes from International Drive, and the fantastic bass specimens that reside there! Bass weighing in excess of 10 pounds can be found there all year round and that is simply amazing in itself because that cannot be said of many lakes in the United States let alone the world!

There are other lakes in the Orlando, Florida area that are great for bass fishing as well. The Clermont chain of lakes in thirty minutes from the theme parks and is also home to 10 pounds plus bass, although it is not quite as famous as the Kissimmee lakes. John's Lake is also well placed on the border of Orange County and Lake County. This is a varied lake that is fantastic for bass fishing with shallow and deep areas and clean waters. You can try any technique at John's Lake with a good degree of success, which brings me nicely on to the next step!
