Most trophy bass are caught on wild shiners. Most customers choose to use them when they fish Toho. Shiner prices are $24.99 a doz. depending on availability and demand of wild shiners. For a half-day, you will need 3 to 4 dozen shiners. On an extended half-day trip, you will need 4 to 5 dozen shiners. On a full-day trip, you will need about 6 dozen shiners. If you are not experienced with artifitial's, shiners are the way to go on our Orlando fishing charters.
Summer Guide Trips:
Summertime fishing is most productive during the morning hours. That's when the bass are very active. Around midday, the water temperatures are at their highest and the bass lose interest in feeding. So in summer, we only fish for four or six hours. We do not offer 8 hour Orlando fishing trips until fall.
