Lake Toho Bass Fishing and Kissimmee Chain of Lakes
Folks, we have been having a blast with bass fishing. Waters are cooling down and the bass have been biting. Exciting part is they have been hammering our soft plastics and lipless crankbaits. Today the wind was up some, which spooked off our top water action, or did it? No sir, we worked senko type baits across the top of lily pads and had more than our share of bass explode on our baits.
We worked everything from a buzz bait, which only got blown up on once and missed, to senko type baits, lizards and flukes and mixed in a red eye shad. Had a few areas where we knew were holding bass so I deployed the new anchor system from Dig In Anchors to hold us in place and yes we caught a few in each area we worked.
Drift patterns that have been working for the past few weeks are still holding strong.
Slow drift thru and over grass beds and hydrilla have been producing some great bass fishing action on the chain of lakes, Last weeks 10.14 pounder is still holding strong for big bass of this month and the guys have been catching several solid bass in the 4 to 6 pound class. More stained waters the junebug has been the hot ticket and areas with cleaner water we have just been hammering bass on the watermelon Red.
We are seeing more and more action on the surface as of late with these cooler mornings, only thing that kept the top water action off today was the higher winds.
No one was complaining though, with 14 bass making it over the side of the boat to make it a very good day on the water.
