Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
One of the most exciting ways to catch bass here in Florida is sight-fishing. Spotting a fish in shallow water and pitching bait to them, watching them eat, and then setting the hook is a thrill you will never forget. Never worry, all fish are handled properly and released quickly after a photo.
“It was awesome to get the chance to explore the Harris Chain of Lakes with Alex and his son. Leesburg, Florida is a wonderful destination to land some giant largemouth bass. Each trip can be so uniquely different as you can get the opportunity to fish a variety of different lakes.
Alex and his son spent their day on the water at Lake Griffin. It has been a productive lake this time of year. We started out fishing in the canals and catching bass on beds. Once the day warmed up, we moved to some offshore structure.
The bass were in both pre and post-spawn patterns. Targeting fish in deep water hydrilla was a blast for these guys. When it comes to fishing offshore grass, catching bass on lipless crankbaits is the most effective pattern. Slow move the bait through the grass and hold on as you rip that bait through the grass.
Alex and his son had an absolute blast catching over 30 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. Breezy and sunny conditions promoted a strong bite they surely capitalized on. Tight lines until next time!”
Second trip of this update:
“The Harris Chain continues to be a great place to catch large numbers of bass all trip long. It was fun to fish with Adam and his good friend. While they were here in North Central Florida, the Harris Chain always intrigued them. It showed them a great time with plenty of action with artificial lures.
Just like the last trip, the fish were pre and post-spawning patterns. We focused mainly on the fish in post-spawn patterns. Adam and his friend enjoyed catching fish on the mouth of the canals on Lake Griffin.
When it comes to fishing these areas, you can target bass either with a slow presentation or moving. Most of the bites came yet again from a lipless crankbait. The Harris Chain is notorious for its offshore structure and we explore it as the day heated up.
It was awesome to see Adam and his good friend double up on several occasions. Most of the fish caught were in the 1-2 pound range with some quality mixed in. They caught over 30 fish on this trip and are looking forward to coming back soon to cash in on some bigger bass!” – Captain Gino Losi

Enjoy this fishing update for Lake Toho Bass Fishing with our Local Experts and Professional Fishing Captains:
Fishing with Captain John Leech
“Lake Toho is a famous lake known for its bass fishing. Every year, the lake gets a lot of publicity from local and national tournaments. When the tournaments come, it is best to stay off the water until the afternoon when all the boats have finished fishing. Luckily, all tournaments use artificial lures and most of our trips are done with live bait.
I had the pleasure and opportunity to fish with Ethan and Mike. While exploring what Central Florida had to offer, getting out on Lake Toho was a must. This big beautiful lake has some big bass that can be caught almost all year round. Great weather promoted some great fishing that they surely won’t forget.
Ethan and Mike capitalized a strong bite on their quick 4-hour fishing adventure. The biggest bass caught on this trip weighed in at 6 pounds, which was a giant largemouth bass. You can expect catches like this during this time of year. Larger females are spawning and in post-spawn ready to either protect their bed or gorge on bait.
These guys had an awesome trip and will cherish these fishing memories. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again with them in the future!” – Captain John Leech
Fishing with Captain Steve Niemoeller
“Florida bass fishing is best done with live bait. Most anglers when it comes to fishing for largemouth bass, don’t associate live bait with it. When you come to Florida, using live bait can produce the results and actions you want. Watching a big bass blow a shiner out of the water is a thrill you will never forget!
I had the pleasure of fishing with Justin and his brother Brandon. They were given a bass fishing trip as a present and went out while they were here in Central Florida. Lake Toho Bass Fishing was the perfect way to soak in the Florida sun and get outdoors.
This was a quick 6-hour fishing trip. Justin and Brandon never had the chance to fish with wild-caught live shiners. This was their first time fishing with them and they had a great time. They caught over 20 largemouth bass on their trip with the biggest weighing right around 5 pounds. As well, several fish weighed in at 2-3 pounds.
The wind was blowing which kept the bite strong but also pushed us to find some protected areas. Justin and Brandon will be back for more action in the near future and I am looking forward to our next fishing trip!” – Captain Steve Niemoeller
“I had the pleasure of fishing with Kevin and his wife from Tennessee. A Lake Toho fishing trip was a great idea to soak in the fresh air and enjoy the outdoors. The fishing conditions were sporadic with moments of rain, wind, and cloudy weather but that did not stop the bass from biting.
Kevin and his wife enjoyed every moment on the water. They caught over 15 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The most productive method to catching these bass were wild-caught live shiners. As well, the bass were chewing on artificial baits including speed worms, soft plastic worms, and flukes.
When fishing for bass in Florida, focus your attention on submerged hydrilla on the main lake areas. This grass structure will attract fish and help you land that big bass you are after. Storms rolled through during the trip and shut down the bite. Once it moved through, Kevin and his wife picked away at several more quality fish.
They caught fish up to 4 pounds on this fishing trip. It was a blast watching them reel in these strong fighting fish. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again with them in the future!”
Second trip of this update:
“It was a great pleasure to fish with Dennis, Steve, and Mark. While spending some time in Central Florida, they wanted to get out bass fishing. It was going to be a quick 4-hour afternoon fishing trip with some steady action.
Wild-caught shiners were the best way to catch largemouth on this trip as well. We went back to very similar areas as the last trip fishing over submerged hydrilla. The bass would come out from this structure and attack the bait.
Dennis, Steve, and Mark enjoyed the Florida sunshine and fought the windy conditions at the same time. Overall, they had a successful day on the water with over 10 largemouth bass in the boat up to 5 pounds. Nothing beats spending time on the water with your friends will reeling in quality largemouth bass. Everyone on board had a fantastic time and are looking forward to next time!” – Captain Brent Nelson

Check out this Winter Haven Chain of Lakes Fishing Update:
During the prime months of the year, bass will be in a wide variety of patterns. This month, largemouth bass will spawn around the proper moon phases. April should have another strong spawn. Weather plays a large role in how strong the spawn will be each month.
After major cold fronts like have been occurring during this time of year, the largemouth bass will pull off the beds. They will be headed toward the deeper water and grass structures that retain heat. Once the weather switches and a warming trend occur, you will see fish go back on beds.
Use either slow-moving soft plastics or a moving bait like a chatter bait in order to locate fish. During the cooler water temperature days, the slower presentation tends to work the best.
Hop on board and I can help dial you in on all the action here on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes!
Fishing with Captain Bill Goudy Jr.
“I had the pleasure of fishing with Michael, Mike, and Craig on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes. This is one beautiful place to visit and experience. It has a lot of great bass fishing as well. Michael, Mike, and Craig were traveling to Central Florida on a vacation and wanted to go out fishing for Florida largemouth bass.
They were coming from the cold state of Pennsylvania. While doing so, they wanted to enjoy Florida outdoors and sunshine. Bass fishing was on the menu and they had a great time on the water. Sunny, windy, and cloudy conditions made the trip interesting.
Michael, Mike, and Craig caught over 10 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The most successful method to do so was wild-caught live shiners. After dialing them in on the action, they started catching fish consistently. Shiner fishing can get tricky for most anglers that are not used to it but you pick it up rather quickly!
These guys had a great time and I am looking forward to getting them back out on the water again soon!”
On my second trip, the bite was on fire with some bigger bass!
“Lakeland, Florida is a fantastic place to come visit here in Central Florida. If you are looking for an outdoor experience like no other, the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes can provide you with one.
I had the pleasure of fishing with A.J and Calvin traveling from Indiana to get out of the cold weather. While doing so, they wanted to explore what bass fishing had to offer. Sunny and breezy conditions made for a strong bite.
Water temperatures were in the range of 68-70 degrees. Cold fronts have been moving in and out of Florida but the weather is stable now. As the temperatures begin to rise, you will begin to see even stronger action.
The trip started out with a bass over 5 pounds and several others in the 2-3 pound range. The first spot slowed down and then we moved around a bit to not only see the chain of lakes but also find some new water to fish. After a short while, the fish bite turned on again.
AJ and Calvin ended their day with over 15 largemouth bass in the boat. They caught 2 over 5 pounds and several 3-4 pound bass as well. The action is red hot and is only going to continue to get better as the warm weather stays.
AJ and Calvin had a great time on the water and I am looking forward to seeing them again soon!” – Captain Bill Goudy Jr

“I had the pleasure of fishing with Scott, who was traveling to Florida for some bass fishing. Lake Toho located in Kissimmee, FL was the perfect place to explore. Being a guide, family bonding is always great but getting a solo angler out on the water has its advantages as well.
Scott was looking to cash in on some bass fishing action right here on Lake Toho. It is always nice to help an angler dial in on his fishing skills and get them on some quality largemouth bass. Scott enjoyed his quick 6-hour fishing trip catching over 30 Florida bass.
Lake Toho showed its true colors on this trip with nice 6-pound bass and several other fish in the 3-5 pound range. I got to show Scott around the lake and let him explore different areas. Most of the spots produced a decent bite.
I am looking forward to seeing Scott back here next year for some more bass fishing action!” – Captain John Leech
Fishing with Captain Brent Nelson
“Cold fronts here in Florida can really make for an interesting day on the water. Even though, as a captain, I would love to have perfect weather all year long, it just is not a reality. Getting out on the water during tough conditions inevitably makes me a much better guide.
I had the pleasure of fishing with David and his wife. They were traveling from Ontario Canada looking to enjoy some Florida weather. Unfortunately, they brought down some cooler weather which made for slower fishing conditions.
During post-frontal conditions, the fish get active in the morning and then slowly shut off. You have to find some deep water pockets and vegetation that retain heat. David and his wife enjoyed the learning process and landing some solid bass on their fishing trip.
Wild-caught live shiners were the most effective way to explore Lake Toho on this fishing adventure. They may not have caught a giant largemouth but spending quality time on the water was the most rewarding experience for them!
“I had the ultimate pleasure of getting out on the water with Tom and his son. They were traveling from Indiana looking to experience something different. When coming to Central Florida, you have endless opportunities for things to do. Most travelers decide to explore what Florida bass fishing can do for them.
The action was productive on this fishing trip for Tom and his son. They caught over 15 Florida largemouth bass in their quick 4-hour fishing trip. Calm and cloudy conditions made for a strong bite early in the day. As well, they caught some quality fish with the biggest in the 3-4 pound range.
March will continue to produce some great fishing here in Central Florida. Several lakes that I fish are starting to turn on. If you are looking for a fantastic fishing adventure and some nice weather, March is the perfect time to visit!

First Trip of this Report:
“Artificial fishing on the Harris Chain can be a very productive way to catch largemouth bass. For those that love to fish with artificial baits, the Harris Chain is the place to visit!
I had the pleasure of fishing with David, who was staying in The Villages during the winter months of the year. While traveling from Canada, bass fishing and getting outdoors is always a must. All-weather conditions to him are better than what it is back home in Canada.
We adventured out on Lake Griffin in search of largemouth bass. The trip started out in the canals on both ends of the lake. Windy conditions made it ideal to start out in the canals and once it died down to move to several other hot spots. The bass are biting on both senkos and frogs in the back canals.
Once the wind died down, we moved offshore. Every upcoming moon phase and month from now until April-May, you will get bass in pre-spawn phases. The best way to target this bass is with crankbaits and speed worms on the deeper edges of the submerged hydrilla.
David had a blast catching bass all trip long on this fishing trip. He landed 30-40 largemouth bass on his full day trip. I am looking forward to fishing with him again soon!” – Captain Gino Losi
Second Trip of this Report
“After hard Central-North Florida cold fronts, the best thing we can get is some warm days. When this happens, especially when the largemouth bass spawn is in full effect, you can see some exceptional fishing.
I had the opportunity to go fishing with Dennis and his good friend. They wanted to come out and catch some Florida largemouth bass while traveling here on a visit. As a result, it was a fishing trip that neither of them would forget.
During the spawning months of the year, shallow water areas are prime for catching giant Florida largemouth bass. These canals create the perfect environment for bass to come in and make their beds. When this occurs, catching and releasing big bass is highly common especially on the Harris Chain of Lakes.
Dennis and his friend had an epic day on the water. Cruising into a back canal on Lake Griffin, they landed 2 trophy largemouth bass over 8 pounds. Several other bass weighed in at 6-7 pound range. Most of the larger females came off beds and then released so that they could finish their spawning process.
The most effective method to catch largemouth bass in this position is with live bait. Dennis and his friend also used artificial lures to pick off several nice bass. As the day progressed and the conditions got better, more females started moving into this canal.
These guys had an epic day on the water that every angler would dream of. I look forward to sharing another incredible moment like this again with them!” – Captain Gino Losi

Latest Lake Tarpon Bass Fishing Report with Local Expert and Captain Bill Goudy Jr:
First Trip of this Report:
“I had the pleasure of fishing with David on Lake Tarpon in Tarpon Springs, FL. He was traveling to west Florida from Philadelphia looking to escape the northeastern weather. While doing so, he wanted to explore what Florida bass fishing was all about.
As a result, he went out fishing on beautiful Lake Tarpon. The action was steady all trip long with several-quality largemouth bass in the boat. Key structures on this trip were hydrilla and Kissimmee grass around docks. Throwing wild-caught live shiners around these areas really helps stir up a good bite.
David caught over 15 largemouth bass on his quick morning fishing trip. The biggest bass caught was right around 4.5 pounds. He was excited to see the quality of fish that he did as you just don’t get the opportunity to land fish like that up north.
David had a great time on the water and is looking forward to getting back down here soon for more action!”
Second Trip of this Report:
“Anglers, travelers, and visitors from across the globe travel to Florida to search down some big Florida largemouth bass. Alan was no different! I had the pleasure of fishing with Alan, my new friend, who was traveling from Toronto, Canada.
While down here, Alan wanted to catch some Florida largemouth bass. We went out on Lake Tarpon and had a blast all day long catching fish after fish. Alan did not expect to land his personal best largemouth bass while here. This fish weighed in at just over 5 pounds. He also lost an even bigger fish around 7 pounds right by the boat.
Fishing can be fishing sometimes, but in those moments we get addicted to the endless possibilities of what will bite the end of the line next. Live bait was the most effective method to help Alan land some beautiful largemouth bass on this fishing trip.
Cloudy but calm conditions made for a great day on the water. It was a really good experience to fish with Alan. He was a great guy to fish with and I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again soon!”
Final Trip of this Report and Video:
“Being a father and a family man, some of my favorite trips are the ones that I have father-and-son duos on the boat. I had the ultimate pleasure of fishing with Josh and his six-year-old son Ryan. They were traveling from Ohio and love bass fishing. While here in Tarpon Springs, we adventured out on Lake Tarpon and had a trip they will never forget!
This trip was post-frontal conditions which had it windier than expected. Fortunately enough, I had several spots that have been producing and knew they would continue to. When we pulled up to the first spot, the action was red hot from the first cast to the last.
The young angler Ryan caught his personal best rather quickly weighing in at 4 pounds 4 ounces. Shortly after that catch Dad, Josh landed his personal best largemouth bass weighing in at 7 pounds 4 ounces. After picking away at several other fish, it started to slow down.
It was nice to show Josh and Ryan around the lake further. We pulled up on another spot, where they were bedding and caught several more quality largemouth bass. It was a solid day of catching numbers of bass in the 2-4 pound range keeping everyone on board excited.
Josh and Ryan had an amazing experience on Lake Tarpon. They are looking to come back and explore the waters again with the whole family. I am looking forward to showing them around in the near future!” – Captain Bill Goudy Jr
