Fishing Adventures near Orlando

Florida is often referred to as “The Bass Fishing Capital of the World” and this reputation extends to fishing in the Orlando area and close to EllaVista’s location.  If you are looking for a break from the theme parks and an opportunity to view beautiful lake scenery and perhaps catch that “fish of a lifetime” then this is a real possibility during your stay.

Situated close to EllaVista are many of the great individual or chain of lakes that consistently produced big trophy bass year round and have long been known as some of Florida’s best trophy bass fisheries.

Revolution Off Road & Fishing offers not just a variety of off road activities but also an excellent 65 acre private lake with depths of up to 40 feet.  As well as Largemouth Bass it offers to opportunity to catch Bluegill, Sunfish, Bowfin, Crappie, Snortnose Gar, and Channel Catfish.

Central Florida is host to the Butler Chain of Lakes, which are located in and around the town of Orlando. They are close to all 3 major theme parks, and offer some excellent bass fishing on what must be some of Florida’s most pristine and scenic waters. Butler Chain is referred to as more of a chain of lakes, with clean, clear waters and deep holes. Depths range up to almost 40 feet and offers some great bass fishing action using a wide variety of techniques from typical live or artificial worms or shiners to jigging spoons making these very popular lakes for all types of fishermen.

The Clermont Chain is yet another great bass fishery, providing that “Old Florida” look. With the tannic waters from the cypress trees that ring these great lakes and the river that takes you to the many lakes on this chain, it gives you the feel of what life was like before big development arrived in the state. This great Central Florida fishing chain presents the opportunity for some great bass action, and double figure fish weight are caught year round. What is better is that the Clermont Chain of lakes are located less than 15 minutes from EllaVista.
