Best options for Orlando area bassing?

Recommended Posts

I'll be in Orlando late next year for a conference, and would not mind getting into some good fishing while in the area.  I can look out the window of the hotel I'll be staying out and see at least 3 good size ponds, complete with weeds, lily pads, etc...but I don't know if they are accessible to me.

Anyone have any ideas of a good local lake I might try while there?

Thanks

Central Florida has just about a fishable body of water every mile or so. Most hold bass in it. When I drive arround, I sometimes stop off at a "bassy" retention pond and toss out a few. Usually 2-3 pounders out of here.

So when you come visit, you have a few options. 1) you can pole arround and fish a few bodies of water/lakes from the shore 2) you can hire a guide to take you out, or 3) you can go to some of the foshing peirs over lakes, or 4) you can rent your own boat for 15$ at Turkey lake.

I have been to Turkey Lake many times and have cought some 6-8 pound bass and numerous 3-5's. Lots of Crappie and Blue gills also. You have to release the bass but can keep your bag limit of panfish. You rent the boat from 7am-11am and it comes with a trolling motor and a fishfinder. Its a nice deal. The number is 407-299-1248 if you want more info and reserve when it comes closer to the time of your trip.

Being a local and without a boat, I like this option and just going to local lakes the best.

Did Turkey Lake start renting boats again? A few months back they weren't.

But there are 4 or 5 docks at Turkey Lake that are still good fishing.
