January Lake Toho Fishing Report 1“I had the pleasure of fishing with Ntxoovxeem and Mietrue, who were looking to cash in on some bass fishing here on Lake Toho. They were traveling from Clearwater, Florida wanting to get out and do some freshwater fishing. It was a fantastic day to do so.

This trip was a quick 6-hour fishing charter. It was split between wild-caught live shiners and artificial baits. When fishing both baits, it is crucial to find grass structures that hold fish. Sparse hydrilla in the shallow and open water made for a productive day on the water. Windy conditions helped stack fish up in pockets and corners of the grass.

Ntxoovxeem and Mietrue caught over 35 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The biggest fish was caught on live bait weighing up to 5.95 pounds. Also, they landed 15 of these bass on artificial baits. The most productive baits on this trip were speed worms, flukes, and texas rigs worms. Shallow grass was the main area of focus.

This couple had a fantastic time catching some quality bass on Lake Toho. I am looking forward to seeing them back out on the water next time!” – Capt Brent Nelson

“On this fishing trip, I had the pleasure of fishing with Tony on Lake Toho. He was escaping the cold from the northern part of the states with his family. While they were exploring Disney and the theme parks, he scheduled a day to go fishing.

Lake Toho Bass Fishing was the perfect option for him to explore. John and his family make an annual trip to Central Florida and bass fishing is a must. We had a great day on the water fishing with live shiners. Live bait is the way to go when looking to put numbers in the boat.

Tony ran out of bait in just a quick 2-hours of his fishing trip. The action, especially for male bass, is on fire. After going through the live bait, he switched to artificial baits. Soft-plastics including flukes, speed worms, and sencos were very productive for a short period. January Lake Toho Fishing Report 3

Bright sunny skies with no wind did not stop the action on this fishing trip. Tony had a great time and I am looking forward to fishing with him again!” – Capt John Leech

Fishing with Captain Steve Niemoeller

“I had the pleasure of fishing with Linda and Bill. They were traveling from South Florida on a little Florida getaway. While doing so, Lake Toho fishing was on the menu. The action was slower than normal but everyone on board had a great time reeling in fish.

Unfortunately, this time of year can produce cooler weather in the morning. As a result, Linda and Bill were catching them steadily throughout their quick 4-hour fishing trip. Sunny and breezy conditions promoted a decent bite for them.

Wild-caught live shiners were the most productive method to catch bass on this trip. Most of the fish were males in the 2-3 pound range.

Every trip yields different results especially when cold fronts roll through. Linda and Bill enjoyed their time on the water and are looking forward to seeing what their next adventure can bring.” – January Lake Toho Fishing Report 2
