Not All Cold Fronts Are Bad?

Not all cold fronts are bad? Yup, that’s right. I’ve seen it before and this latest cold front proves it again that some cold fronts actually help the fishing. This latest cold front is another example. The week before the front we had a slight lull in the fishing. The days prior to the front the fishing increased like normal. But it was after the front came through that the unexpected happened. The fishing went lights out and all of our guides began hoisting in multiple giant Toho bass each day (collage above). A 12 pound 9 ounce behemoth was […]

Shiners, the secret to bettering yourself as an artificial angler

Shiners, not only do they catch giant bass but they can be used in a number of different ways to help you catch more fish with artificials. Shiners are renowned for there ability to catch the biggest bass in any body of water. The reason why shiners work so well is because it’s simply what these fish prefer to eat. Bass in a aquarium will gulp shiner after shiner while refusing to eat bluegill, frogs, or crawfish. While big bass may easily become accustom to the strange movements and shapes of artificial lures, they just can’t help themselves to the […]

Good Fishing Even After a Cold Front

On today’s Lake Toho bass fishing adventure the fishing was hot and heavy. We had a cold front pass thru the area the night before and even though we were fishing right after this cold front we still caught the heck out of fish for the first hour and a half! We couldn’t keep more than 2 rods in the water! The area that we were fishing is a spawning flat and the fish are beginning to load up in these areas. The bass fishing on Toho should get better and better as we move further into the spawning period. […]

Bass fishing in Florida after a hurricane

With hurricane Matthew on the way I’m sure many people are wondering how it affects the bass fishing afterwards and how it affects the lakes in the big picture. All of the Kissimmee grass, bulrush, and various other types of grass and reeds fields that inhabit the lakes will be cleaned out with the heavy winds. This will allow for those plants to grow greener and fuller than usual which is great for the long run. But along with cleaning up the grass fields the wind will also stir up silt and gunk off the bottom muddying up the water. […]
