EXPERIENCE A LIFE AT JOHN`S LAKE and.....CONQUER THE ISLAND

John`s Lake is located in North Park, just northwest of Orlando, Florida. Historically, Johns Lake produces bass over 10 pounds, rated in the top 10 lakes in Florida. Recently the lake has gone through some low water conditions and it remains to be producing very well. Largemouth bass are the primary species here but Crappie and Bluegill are also present. The lake provides a lot of structure with weed beds and can be readily fished from shore in some areas.

The John`s Lake boat ramp is about 6 miles east of Clermont on Highway 50. Even with the development of most of the shoreline and it?s close proximity to Orlando, this lake produces excellent bass fishing with little to no pressure during the week.

Everything about this lake is right for bass. The water color is slightly stained, which is good thing for Florida. There are several rocky structures, coral rock type bottom throughout the lake and there is adequate cover despite the building of high dollar homes around the shoreline. Water levels fluctuate, but always return to normal. The State of Florida restocked the lake with 500,000 bass fingerlings in the early 2000`s. These bass are now reaching trophy size and the lake is continuing its reputation as one great bass fishery.

Fishing on John`s lake is always a blast, it seems we are consistently able to put people on good quality bass. Some of our biggest bass of the year actually are caught right here in Johns lake. Another nice feature is there is no big long boat rife to get to the fish, a few minutes of idling and were on our first spot!

I HAD A DREAM

Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
