Trolling Open Water on Lake Toho for Largemouth Bass

Hi this is Capt John Leech with my Lake Toho fishing report.

I had the pleasure to take out Todd Craver today to do some Trolling Open Water on Lake Toho for Largemouth Bass. I love fishing Lake Toho because it allows you to use a multitude of techniques. As a guide, it is integral to have different ways to catch them especially when they are not biting one method.

One of my favorite techniques is trolling. It really gets the bait where it needs to be. You really have to be able to read the water in order for this technique to be effective. You have to know what structure is key for holding largemouth bass.

We found the fish though in open water, along key edges. The largemouth bass on Lake Toho is schooling up really well this time of year. One of the better aspects of trolling is that you can cover more water. Once you find the school you want to fish in, you can stop and focus on it.

Todd had an amazing two-day adventure with us. We went through 4 dozen shiners each day and had a great time. The biggest fish weighed about 6 pounds. You really can not beat coming down to Central Florida to do some Trolling for Largemouth Bass on Lake Toho.

I am looking forward to him coming back soon and getting back out on the Pond.

This is Captain John Leech, and I hope you catch the fish of your dreams!
