The Summer fishing on Lake Toho this year has possibly been the best ever! With more numbers of fish and more big fish being caught than what seems like ever before. This is due to the lower than average water temperatures that we’ve been experiencing. Especially compared to last year where water temperatures were hitting the mid 90’s daily. Which made the fishing tough. Luckily this year was a cooler one and the water temp has stayed in the 80’s. And these Florida fish love it.
Just a month ago we were averaging catching around 20-30 bass on our Lake Toho charters. While unfortunately that has seemed to have ended, we are still averaging around 15 a day on our 4-5 hour trips. With a chance at a giant nearly every trip, and bass over 5 pounds being everyday fish.
As always live wild shiners have been the best producers. But the artificial bite has been pretty good flipping and using speed worms. So if artificialing is your thing now is a great time to go.
The majority of the fish are still offshore as the water temps have not yet cooled down enough for the fish to start moving shallower. Deeper hydrilla edges and offshore hydrilla are where the majority of the fish are, and is where most of the bigger fish are being caught.
All in all this year has been one of the best ever for fishing Toho and I don’t see it stopping anytime soon. With the temperatures in Florida getting ready to start slowly falling the fishing outta just keep getting better as we head into the fall.
If you’re looking to book your trip now would be the time to get in on the action.
