Orlando, Florida - Freshwater Fishing Report
Marion County

Saturday morning was one of the finest days I have had fishing in a long time. First of all I did not even have a guide trip and couldn't even find any body to go with me but I was in search for some new water to take my customers to. Also Bill from Sandys Bait and Tackle in Tavares Florida had asked me to try a new crappie rod which I am always willing to try something new and give my honest opinion. Let me tell you. This Deep South Rod is just as good if not better than any crappie rod I have ever used. I do not know what all lengths they have I only tried their fourteen footer and I would not hesitate one bit to replace all of my tite line rods with it. This rod seemed to hook the fish all by itself. I can't wait to try some different lengths of rods to long line troll. Enough said about the rod let me tell you about the fishing. I fished for about three hours tite lining using Culprit Paddle Tails on Vicious Panfish line. The fish were suspended about two foot deep in six to seven foot of water. Traveling at one mile per hour according to my GPS I caught well over seventy five fish in the three quarter to one and a half pound size.For more information on Orange Lake or booking a guide trip go to
