Orlando Pond Fishing Challenge | Catching Bass from the Shore

In Orlando, Pond fishing for Bass, from the shore, a dock, or a boat can be one of the best and easiest ways to catch quality Largemouth Bass. Central Florida is covered with small lakes and ponds, and they’re all full of fish. Getting access to these ponds and lakes can sometimes be a challenge, as most of them are surrounded by private property. So, my son, Parker, and I have started our Orlando Pond Hopping Challenge. In this first video, we’re fishing from the shore / docks on a couple of the Fish Orlando Fab 5 Lakes:

1. Turkey Lake at Bill Frederick Park – http://www.cityoforlando.net/parks/bill-frederick-park-turkey-lake/

2. Lake Underhill –

More information on these lakes can be found on the official Orlando Fab 5 website: http://myfwc.com/conservation/freshwater/fish-orlando/

In a nutshell, these 5 lakes are managed for either catching large numbers of Bass or for Trophy sized Bass.

    glad to see you out with your son, thats awesome. if or when you go to ivanhoe, if you go to the west side of the bridge you will find tons of bank fishing places and should find sucess also.

  2. Idk about the fab 5 lakes but you and your son would enjoy lake Highland it's right by the Ivanhoe boat ramp. But you two especially him would have good chance at a nice one there's alot of quality fish but it's a lil bit grassy, so not alot of people fish it. Just a suggestion while fishing downtown ( I've got four from Highland over 7 lbs). Good luck to both of y'all

  3. Just moved to Orlando from Kansas this video is so helpful

  4. Living around Apopka/ downtown Orlando, I find it nearly impossible to find place to fish from the shore. It is very frustrating since there are so many lakes and ponds nearby but I find it very difficult to find a place that isn't marked by no trespassing signs.

  5. Next time try a can of sweet corn kernels as bait… first take a few and toss it in the water, then put one on a hook and cast out near flowing drain pipes or in the middle of the lake

  6. I'm from Brazil…and I've been at the first lake last week! the same pier, two bites, texas rig!!! next month will be at orlando again, will love to try to catch a urban bass!!!!!!! great video guys! priceless to see the little fisherman with his first bass strike!

  7. Bro this is a awesome video my wife just had our daughter im looking forward to taking her out 🎣🎣🎣🎣🎣🎣🎣

  8. Great video. I recognised that lake from my YouTube video, very similar fishing with my young son too. If you see my Large Mouth bass video, you see towards the end where he catches a catfish on a chatter-bait (crazy or what?).

  9.
