Getting ready to leave for the BUTLER CHAIN in Windermere. ( Alot of famous people live over there or at least have houses there )

Our April tournament will be held here and hopefully I will be able to find a few spots. I went there Saturday with Al and hit Lake Tibet, Sheen and Pocket. Today I plan on going the opposite direction and hit a few of the lakes in that direction.

Well, I went and I saw lol

I went to Waseon Bay < sp > first and seen one small buck on the bed. He was about 20 feet from a line of pads. But he didnt want what I was offering . I messed around in there for a bit longer then left for Lake Downs.

On Lake Downs I boated 3 ( about 1 1/4 -- 1 1/2 pounds each ) All came on a Alluring Brush Bug ( brush hog ) with 3/16th weight pegged. I found one bed with 3 fish on it, but they all was small.

I tried with a lipless crank for a bit and caught one jack.

I went to one spot on Lake Butler itself and seen probably 4 jacks cruiseing around in there so I left for Louisa.

In Louisa I missed 2 on a Fluke. I think the hook I was useing was to small, so of course I change it and not another hit on it lol.

Still got a few weeks till the tourney so I know I will be going a time or two more pre-fishing it.

Hey rodney,
We are going to Butler this Saturday for a club tourney, I haven't had time to pratice this time around, but when you went up into Lake Down did you go up to the left in that corner? Is the hydrilla still there? How is water clarity? I will let you know how I make out by Monday. I'm still absolutely swamped at work and our boss is taking the company bottom fishing on the Ocean Obsession out of Port Canaveral this Friday, I will try and get some pictures.
