Bait: As always, we recommend wild shiners for numbers of bass—and especially trophy-size bass. Artificial lures also can be very productive, provided you have the right conditions. Top-water baits are favored for early morning fishing. Plastic worms, flukes, sinkos, rattletraps, and spinner baits are the most productive lures used on Lake Toho and the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes.

Changing Conditions: Be prepared for changing conditions. Wintertime angling can […]
