Re: Orlando area in August - your top tips!
Do a search on Walt Disney World Bass Fishing. You find that Disney has some public fishing on its waters. You can go with a guide and some is no guide. I have never done it but I don't think it is real costly.
If it was me I would try fishing in the morning and avoid the afternoon thunderstorms. July/August can have some really serious lighting storms. At least that is the case on the West coast.
