I saw a bass in the Gourd Neck Spring of Lake Apopka grab a baby turtle once. The fish was maybe a 3-pounder, the turtle about 3 inches across. The bass gulped once, twice, three times—and shot the turtle back out. It was a bit too broad to go down the

Lake Apopka is the third largest lake in the U.S. State of Florida. It is located 15 miles northwest of Orlando, mostly within the bounds of Orange County, although the western part is in Lake County. Fed by a natural spring, rainfall and stormwater runoff, water from Lake Apopka flows through the Apopka-Beauclair Canal and into Lakes Beauclair and Dora. From Lake Dora, water flows into Lake Eustis, then into Lake Griffin and then northward into the Ocklawaha River, which flows into the St. Johns River.

in the 1940s, Lake Apopka drew 100's of anglers to it's waters. It is said that the lake was so clear that bass could be fished by sight alone. Unfortunately, the lake took a turn for the worst was continually polluted for decades. The pollution resulted in low visibility, a struggling fish and wildlife population, and little to no visitors.

Luckily, the lake has taken a slow, but steady turn for the better. Pollution has been brought to a minimum and restocking of fish species has been occurring for a few years now. Lovers of Lake Apopka have pushed and facilitated for many of these lake improvements creating a cleaner and more attractive lake.

Alligators seem to be abundant at the lake. Other wildlife that can be seen at the lake includes fish, multiple species of birds, and bison.
