8.5 pound Lake Toho bass

October Lake Toho fishing report

With the cooling temperatures of fall the bass fishing has really picked up on Lake Toho. We’ve gone from catching an average of 10-15 per day to 20-30 on our guide trips! And of course the big fish bite has increased also. We’re getting chances at fish 7 pounds and bigger nearly everyday. If you live near the lake or are able to make a trip now is the time to be fishing Toho! Since they halted all chemical killing of the hydrilla in the lake the water is cleaner then I’ve ever seen it. There are literally so many […]

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 […]

Nice 7 pound Orlando bass

July Lake Toho Fishing Report

The heat of the summer is here on Orlando’s Lake Toho and the usual summer patterns are in full affect. Which means you can have some awesome days as long as you’re targeting the right areas… With the water temperatures rising the fish’s metabolism is at it’s highest which means that all the bass in the lake are more keyed in on their food source more than any other time of year. Matching exactly what the fish are feeding on is extremely important and can make the difference between having a disappointing day and an unforgettable one.  Most day’s we’ve […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
