Orlando fishing Report On Johns Lake
<p>Prior to this past week, I was struggling on the water. It seemed no matter what I did, or where I went I wasn't getting a lot of bites or decent fish. I went deep, I went shallow, fished top to bottom and only could manage a few short fish. This week I approached the lake with a more positive attitude. Last Sunday was the most exciting day I have had on that lake since spring. Mike and I went out Sunday with the attitude that we were going to crush them, and we did. Big bites were had with Mike's spinner bait first thing in the morning, and smaller bass (around 12 inches) caught with a weightless sinko. As the earlier morning bite diminished and the schoolies slowed down, we decided to pull out the Jigs and start fishing the deep heavy cover we could find in the areas of John's Lake that are still high from all the rain. A few hours passed, but we stuck with the jigs because we were getting bites from them, just not landing the fish. Around 11 am it happened, Mike hooked on to what we thought a decent 3-4 lbs bass. The bass quickly dove to the bottom, under the thick grass, and the only chance we had was to just scoop the net and pray I could get him. Thankfully we did, and to our surprise the fish wasn't a 3lbs bass, it was much bigger than that; it weighed 10 lbs, 8 oz. It didn't catch much after that, we couldn't calm ourselves down enough to really focus on where we needed to be, regardless it was a great day and the beginning of a great week on the water.
