Trophy Bass Fishing in Orlando Florida

Capt. Steve Boyd

Lake Tohopekaliga - Freshwater Fishing Report

This blog covers Florida Bass Fishing in August but it doesn't matter where you live because it is hot everywhere. There is a huge majority of anglers that avoid the lakes this time of year because they feel it is too hot to catch big bass. This can be such a huge mistake for anyone that follows this way of thinking because fish need to feed and the only adjustment that is needed this time of year is when to chase them.

For some in other areas of the country fishing at night is their best option in the Summer but not necessarily here in Florida. There are people that fish at night on our lakes and there are big fish that are caught but it isn't the best time to catch big bass here. Our lakes are shallow compared to other areas of the country which is an important factor for succesful nighttime fishing. Early morning and late evening by far are the best times to go bass fishing in Florida as our big bass follow this feeding pattern throughout the Summer months.

Just a few days ago I caught a beautiful 9lb Florida Bass at 8:00 a.m. and then went on to catch a 5 pound bass and then a short while later another in the 6lb range. My 5 biggest bass for that morning was 24lbs all before 10:00 a.m. This is why it is important to get out there and go fishing because in Florida we always have big bass which can be caught with the right adjustments.

If you decide to pursue big bass this Summer be sure to get on the water at the best time for your area and fish hard and be efficient when it is the peak feeding time. If all goes well hopefully you will land the biggest bass of your life!
