11 pound Lake Toho bass

Lake Toho Winter Forecast

The upcoming fishing season on Lake Toho is our peak season for the year mainly because this is the beginning of the spawning months here in Central Florida. January through March is when Lake Toho produces the vast majority of trophy-sized bass over 10 lbs and it is also our peak season overall for bass fishing here in Central Florida. The fishing is so good during this time of year because this is the time that the bass are in their pre-spawn and spawning stages which produce some of the best catches and some of the biggest bass during trips.

Summer Lake Toho fishing report

Lake Toho this summer is healthier than ever. With the FWC not spraying any grass on the lake at all this year, there hasn’t been any algae bloom like years prior. Which has made the water quality and fishing throughout the whole lake solid. We’ve been catching an average of 20 to over 30+ fish a day on our guide trips and with conditions holding strong, it should remain that way for the rest of the summer. As usual at this time of year, the bulk of the bass have moved offshore to hydrilla beds, brush piles, and shell beds. […]

May Lake Toho Fishing report

This has been our BEST year we’ve ever had catching trophy sized bass on Lake Toho so far and it hasn’t let up. The lake continues to produce 7+ pound bass continuously and the water quality seems to be at the best its ever been with more natural grass like shrimp grass and pepper grass growing than ever before. We’ve been consistently putting 20+ fish in the boat on our charters with some days catching over 40! While shiners have been the best bite, this is also the best time of year for artificials, when 25-30 pound bags are caught […]

Spring bass fishing on Lake Toho here in Central Florida is one of the most productive times for catching good numbers of bass as well as the trophy bass of a lifetime.

May Lake Toho Fishing Report

This has been one of the best years we’ve had fishing Lake Toho. We caught an absolute boat load of 8-12 pound bass this winter and it just keeps continuing. The core of engineers has lowered the lake to it’s low pool (which they do every year at this time to simulate the dry season) but with all the offshore hydrilla that is in the lake the fish have moved out into it and the bite has remained strong. And that’s where they’re at right now, the summer offshore bite is in full effect and the big girls are holed […]

December Lake Toho Fishing Report

The bass fishing on Toho remains solid as we move closer to the peak winter time spawn in January, February, and March. Fish continue to constantly chase shad and shiners around feeding up for the upcoming months where they will be at their biggest. They’re already getting fat, really fat, and not because they’re filling up with eggs but because they’re filling up with so much bait! They’re all beginning to weigh more and more. We continue to be averaging catching 20- 30 on our 4 hour trips, and on our longer trips some days well over 40 bass on […]

The Drive to Make a Living Fishing

It all started one day on a little aluminum john boat on the Upper Potomac river in Maryland. Where my dad took me fishing, it was my first ever time. Little me stood eagerly waiting with a nightcrawler. Not knowing what I was going to catch and that my life was about to be changed forever. After a little wait my line tugged, not knowing what it was I began to reel and hooked into the fish. It pulled so hard it began to take the rod out of my hands and my dad rushed over to help me. With […]

September Lake Toho fishing report

With fall beginning to approach the bass fishing is starting to change on Orlando’s Lake Toho. The days are starting to shorten and the bass are just now beginning to show signs of moving into a fall feeding pattern. Which basically means they’re starting to feed for longer in the morning instead of quitting once it starts to get hot around 10am, only to feed again in the late afternoon. We’re averaging around 20 bass a day on our guide trips with some days catching over 30. The average size has been good too, we’re catching a decent amount of […]

Lake Toho September fishing report

The bass fishing on Lake Toho has been more consistently good than I have ever seen it! And it’s because of one thing, the FWC. I have to say the FWC has done a great job of managing these lakes and listening to us these last couple of years and we are all able to pick the fruits of their labor now. With the reduction of spraying and killing the hydrilla it has allowed for massive populations of fish to concentrate in it. Which in turn has lead to the consistent fishing. They’re spraying it the way they should be […]
