Lake Toho May Fishing Report

The bass fishing is much different now than is was last year at this time on Lake Toho. That’s because the way the lake is being managed is far different from last year. Because of the issues down on the big O (Okeechobee) the FWC halted all spray operations for the state in late October. They conducted public meetings with the intention of finding out how the public wanted the lakes to be managed. What they found out was that the people wanted the hydrilla to be mostly left in the lakes. Instead of spraying it with chemicals and constantly […]

The Biggest Tournaments in Fishing are on Toho this Year

That’s right the biggest tournaments in bass fishing are on Lake Toho this year. Both the MLF (Major League Fishing) and FLW (Fishing League Worldwide) tour have events on Kissimmee’s historic Lake Toho. What may be the biggest one of all is the new Bass Pro Tour created by MLF. This is the first ever year of it and the inaugural event is going to be held on our Lake Toho! Many of the biggest names in fishing from the Bassmaster Elite series and the FLW tour have defected to this new tour because it presents a fun new format […]

January big bass

January Lake Toho Fishing Report

More like big bass report. Because that is what is happening on Lake Toho right now. The big girls are filling up with eggs and are out eating as much as they can before they move up to spawn. And we’ve been catching them on our guide trips. In record numbers too! Well I don’t exactly know if it’s an official record or not because we haven’t really kept track in years past. But we have more pictures of big fish from this year than from years past. So… I’m calling it a record! The collage shows just some of […]

November Lake Toho fishing report

Lake Toho November Fishing Report

This November here on Orlando Florida’s Lake Toho it’s been all about the numbers, numbers, numbers. We’re averaging around 20 bass per day with some day’s up over 30 on our fishing guide trips! The action has been non-stop throughout the morning. We are on large groups of fish that are feeding heavily on bait fish. These are all healthy fish in the 2-3 pound range too! We are still getting plenty of fish up over 7 pounds along with these shear numbers of bass. We’re not only getting double ups, we’re getting some triple ups right now! Catching up […]

October Lake Toho Fishing Report

It’s the Fall and we’re in a transition period here in Orlando Florida. The day’s are getting cooler and as always at this time of year the FWC (Florida Wildlife Commision) has begun to spray and kill off the hydrilla in Lake Toho. Now you may be wondering why would they do this? Well it’s not without good reason. Hydrilla in Lake Toho during the summer here in Florida grows extremely fast. Up to 2 inches a day in some cases. While it is great for the fishing it tends to overrun portions of the lake, like bass spawning flats […]

5 Best baits for fishing Florida right now

This is one of my favorite times for fishing Florida. The day’s are becoming cooler and the fish are fatter than ever! While some fish have begun to spawn in their hidey holes. The majority of the bass are still on pre-spawn grass edges gorging themselves to get ready for the winter and their time to spawn. In the last article I went over how to find these pre-spawn areas. You can find that article here. In this article we’re going to go over how to catch these fish! Worm/Senko – I put these two together because I essentially use […]

Giant Lake Toho bass

Lake Toho Winter News Flash!

Thanksgiving is the beginning of our peak season for catching trophy sized bass here in Kissimmee Florida on West Lake Toho. This is the time of year where we catch more bass in the 10-pound plus range than any other time of year, and to make it even better Hurricane Irma was a big benefit to the bass fishing on Lake Toho. Water levels rose three to four feet after the hurricane and it flushed out the lake and cleaned up the grass fields and water. Which has already made for some fantastic fall fishing and will make this winter […]

Fall Fishing Report

Our fall season on West Lake Toho here in Kissimmee Florida has started with a bang. Hurricane Irma came through early September and raised the water level on Lake Toho nearly 4 feet. Because of this the water has been flowing from one leg to another which has made for some of the best fall Florida bass fishing that we’ve seen in years. Lake Toho bass have been bunching up in groups on the outside edges of hydrilla where the water has been moving down the lake. Wild shiners have been the best way to get big numbers of bass […]

Hurricane Irma’s affects on the future of Orlando’s Lake Toho

This is Captain Jackson owner and operator of AJ’s Freelancer Bass Guide service with a short update post hurricane Irma. If you haven’t seen our first update the Orlando fishing has become very active since the hurricane. It was actually a benefit to the lake and the Corp of engineers in the state of Florida have opened the locks up dumping water out of all the lakes which has created fast moving water down by the locks at the South end of the lake. The Orlando bass fishing has become extremely active in these areas of moving water with great […]
