Orlando - Freshwater Fishing Report
Lake Toho Week ending June 17th
We had a few runs out on Lake Toho over the past week. Waters are on the low side, going into the far backside of Gobblets cove, past the St Cloud canal, the waters are VERY shallow, if your not on plane coming out, expect a slow ride coming out as you will be bumping bottom in several areas. Waters were looking good otherwise with scattered schooling activity going on.
Toho had produced some good bass for us on a wide variety of lures.
Spinner baits, spooks, toads and worms were the main lures used. Main areas to target were Reeds, but the best producing reeds were the scattered ones, especially the stands with a grouping of 4 or 5 reeds, bass were held tight and hit very aggressively. North Steer Beach and the cut into Gobblets Cove were top producers when it came to the reeds.
Good hyrilla patches off the islands held some descent bass, working worms slowly thru the patches along with heavier topped out hydrilla yielding a few good toads. The bite at times has and can be off and on, but with some patience, the bass are there. This seems to have been the pattern on most lakes as of late
Shiner bite has been best around the reeds, deeper water hydrilla and around the islands, free lined in the deeper waters, and bobbers set to about a foot off the islands has produced good bass to 5 pounds, with a few break offs which were pushing the 7 to 9 pound range. Although the waters are not crystal clear, mono lines are still recommended as you will notice your hookup rate is much better.
Our new web site is now up and running so feel free to check it out, we will soon be adding a “store front” so check back often for new updates.
Till our next report, tight lines and great fishing!
