How to catch bass in Florida

How to catch bass in Florida

Ahh good old Florida. It’s known as the fishing capital of the world and for good reason. Florida has some of the most spectacular fishing that you’ll ever experience from saltwater to trophy largemouth bass. One of the reasons that the fishing is unlike anywhere else here is simply because Florida is literally unlike anywhere else.  While for the most part the rest of the country fishes very similar for bass, Florida’s unique shallow grassy lakes and ponds can be a challenge for those who have never fished here. It is so unique that even watching videos or reading articles […]

8 pound Lake Toho bass

September Lake Toho Fishing Report

Ahhh the good old consistency of Florida summer bass fishing. For the most part not much has changed from last months fishing report to this months. Except for one key factor. The big fish bite. For whatever reason the big fish bite has picked up from last month and I’m not complaining. It’s been fun! While the average total amount of bass we’ve been catching remains the same, the amount of fish 7 pounds and up has increased and become much more consistent. Now getting them to the boat has been a different story…  unfortunately we’ve had a lot of […]

August Lake Toho fishing report

Because the FWC has halted the use of chemicals to kill off unwanted grass the lake as a whole is in a much better state than it has been in a long time. Healthy grass can be seen all over the lake and even healthier bass are being caught. As long as the FWC can keep the invasive hydrilla from over taking the lake with their hydrilla harvesters the lake should be producing record numbers of bass in the coming years! Rain, rain, and more rain has pretty much described the weather we’ve had. But luckily the rain has been […]

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 […]

Winter Lake Toho fishing forecast

Lake Toho Winter Fishing Forecast

The winter time here in Florida is widely regarded as the best time to catch that monster bass that you’ve been looking for, and it without a doubt is. More bass over 10-pounds are caught on Orlando’s Lake Toho in the winter time than any other time of year. The picture above showcases just some of the trophy bass that we caught last January, February, and March. And I don’t doubt that we’ll beat that number this year. Last year we had some unstable weather with hurricane Irma hitting us in the fall. This year the weather has been a […]

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 […]

Doubled up Lake Toho giants

Lake Toho September Fishing Report

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 […]
