Lake Butler

We fished Butler Chain the 4 th 5 th and 6 of February last weekend. Didn't catch any really big Bass 3 lb the biggest but a bunch of 2 to 2 1/2 fish. Had over 50 fish for the weekend. Most caught on gold husky jerk. 15 to 20 feet of water outside grass lines. Hope this can help somebody!

    You did better than me. I was on the lake afternoon of the 5 th and 12th and only managed 2 bass on day and 1 the second. I saw them in the 15' but could not get them hooked up. I did see some schoolers busting on Tibet but a jet skier knocked um down before I could get on them. Was windy both days. I haven't fished butler in over a year so that's my story a dim sticking to it. Wish I had some shiners.

    Got out Monday. Tried to get an early start but got a phone call from work didn't get out till noon. We had 8 Bass biggest was 4.7 one 3.4 and 2 more right at 3. Best quality fish we've had in a while. I think there starting to move up, we saw a couple of beds. water temp. right at 70 degrees. Got one week left and then have to head back North.
