Fishing in Lake Tohopekaliga

A day of fishing on Lake Tohopekaliga (or simply, Lake Toho) is closer than you think. Only a half-hour drive away from Orlando and even less from Disney World, this spot features Florida freshwater fishing at its finest. Extend your family vacation for just one more day and relax on the water, especially if you need a break from those roller coasters! 
 
A trophy-sized Largemouth Bass is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Lake Toho. These predators are available any time of year, with slightly better fishing opportunities during May and in the fall. Local guides usually rely on slow trolling for these heavy-pounders.
 
During your trip, you can also target Smallmouth Bass, Catfish, Crappie, and Sunfish. It all depends on which trip you book – the longer the trip, the more variety in your catch. Full day trips are also a great chance to absorb the lovely surroundings and snap some photos, while the kids are entertained with catching live bait.
 
The Lake Tohopekaliga fishing scene attracts serious freshwater anglers from all around. There are several fishing tournaments held here every year, most of them focused on catching Largemouth Bass. For starters, test your skill (and luck) at Bass Pro Tour, held in February.
 

Rules & Regulations

Before your fishing trip starts, you’ll need to purchase a freshwater fishing license. The price differs depending on whether you’re a Florida resident or a visitor.

Largemouth Bass are looking to escape the heat during this time of year, so the best time to catch them is early in the morning while they’re still close to the surface. 
 
Your chances of catching fish are good, no matter what you’re after. But not all of them are in the same spot, so have your guide show you the honey holes.
 
As the weather cools in fall, Bass are coming back to shallow waters and you’ll find them more easily.
 
Bass fishing is as good as ever, but don’t overlook the Crappie here. Whatever you decide to target, your guide will help every step of the way.
 
If you’re going after Bass in December, stick to the shallow water where they’re preparing for their spawning season this time of year.
