Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
We spent a few hours today out on lake Toho.
Water temp was running around 80-83 degrees.
Started out working a Kicker Shad Stick, Plum Apple color along the East side of Makinsons Island,tossing all the way back into the slop and working it out slowly,letting it fall into holes in the hydrilla,picking up 4 good bass to 5 pounds.
From there we moved over to Laniers Point, working white spinnerbaits,kicker kraws in watermellon red.
Worked spinner baits thru scattered reeds picking up 2 smaller bass,and then flipped the kraws into grass patches, picking up a solid 5 1/2 that looked like a mini football.
Moved over to North Steer Beach and got all the way up into the thickest slop we could find and started tossing black snakes, key here was getting into the heart of the nastiest stuff you could find and work it out very slowly, once on the edge,let it pause and the snake would get slammed. We managed 1 over 5 and 2 just over 6 pounds before calling it a day.
Lake is looking alot better and water seems to be cleaning up slowly. Hydrilla beds looked great and held good quality and quantity.
Till my next report, tight lines and great fishing.
