Trophy Bass Fishing on West Lake Toho 

lake tohoAs a Native Floridian, I grew up bass fishing on World Famous Lake Toho with my Father and Grandfather learning how to catch big Florida bass. Today, 25 years later Lake Toho is still pumping out Trophy Bass and I am there helping clients catch them. This experience along with it's reputation keeps me on Lake Toho year round giving clients the opportunity to experience World Class Trophy Bass Fishing. Located just South of Orlando, Lake Toho is the first lake in the Kissimmee Chain and is well known for it's ability to produce trophy bass, making it a popular bass fishing destination for both recreational and tournament anglers. Magazines such as Bassmaster, In-Fisherman, and Bassin' rate Lake Toho as the nations best lake to go trophy bass fishing.

The closest trophy bass fishing lake to Disney World and Universal Studios, Lake Toho is a favorite among visitors looking for the opportunity to catch big Florida bass. The other lakes in the Kissimmee Chain include Cypress Lake, Lake Hatchineha and lake Kissimmee. Lake Toho is the most famous of the lakes but all lakes in the Kissimmee chain regularly produce trophy bass. Lake Toho is also the largest of the Lakes that are close to the theme parks averaging 18,000 acres.

In a 2001 B.A.S.S. tournament a new record for a 5 bass limit was established when a competitor brought in 45lbs 02 oz of fish to the scales averaging 9lbs per fish! The 4 day record was also established in that tournament at 108lbs 04 oz. While this record has since been broken Lake Toho secured it's place in the record books as one of the best fisheries in the country. Because of Lake Toho's reputation and proximity to the theme parks it is the primary lake for Florida Bass Adventures Orlando Bass Guide Service due to it's consistent ability to produce trophy bass. No other lake in Orlando can match the number of trophy bass that Lake Toho produces day in and day out.

The Headwaters for the Kissimmee River which leads South to Lake Okeechobee, Lake Toho is abundant with natural Florida vegetation as well as rilla which helps provide cover for big bass. A majority of Lake Toho is still owned by cattle ranchers so there are very few homes on the lake allowing anglers to see Florida in it's natural setting. Both live bait and artificial lures account for trophy bass caught from Lake Toho but there are certain times during the year where one technique will be most productive. Lake Toho is a typical Florida lake that is shallow in nature with an average depth of 6 feet. Almost all bass fishing is done in 4 feet or less in thick vegetation using weedless lures. Top water action can be found on any lake in Florida year round but Lake Toho bass can totally demolish top water lures when presented properly.
