Lake Toho Spring Fishing Report
Lake Toho Spring Fishing Report
April 8, 2024
Spring bass fishing on Lake Toho here in Central Florida is one of the most productive times for catching good numbers of bass as well as the trophy bass of a lifetime. The reliability of bass fishing on Lake Toho at this time of year is due mainly to the weather becoming very stable and in turn the bass fishing is also very stable and productive at this time of year. AJ's Bass Guides has been in operation since 1970 and holds the lake record of 16 pounds 10 ounces which was caught by Ed Chancy the founder of AJ's Bass Guides in the month of May in 1977 on a black grape paddle tail plastic worm. Captain Jamie Jackson caught the second largest bass out of Lake Toho weighing 15 pounds 8 ounces also in the month of May in 1987 on a rattletrap during the 1987 drawdown. Florida bass fishing in the spring is the best time of year for catching big bass on large golden wild shiners as well as artificial lures. If it is artificial lures that you are interested in, springtime is what we consider the best time of year for fishing artificials on Lake Toho. It is not uncommon to catch a 5 bass limit weighing over 30 pounds on artificials at this time of year. 2023 has been one of the best years that we have seen for catching trophy-sized Lake Toho Florida bass in a very long time. As we move into the spring months this type of fishing will continue and the outlook for this spring may be the best that we have seen yet for catching a Lake Toho trophy. Also 2023 has been one of the busiest years that we have ever experienced in the 53 years that we have been in operation and even though we have 9 full-time captains working for us we recommend reserving your date as early as possible while we still have one of our professional full-time Lake Toho bass guides available. Looking forward to seeing y'all soon and bass wishes, Captain Jamie Jackson

This is a turn key operation, just come with a positive attitude. Be sure to dress for the weather, Florida has chilly mornings. Aside from that, have fun and make some memories!!!

Great time to fish. Weather is nice and comfortable so can fish in the morning or in the afternoon or both. I would bring sunscreen, sunglasses and some extra layers to wear in the early morning hours.

If you fish in January bring a wide range of clothes. It was in the 70s and dry on Saturday, then cold and rainy on Sunday. Also, if your Captain says you should buy extra bait, listen to them. If we hadn't bought extra, we may have ran out before we got to one of our best spots of the day.

It was a bit cold, but the sun came out a few times and it was fine. As long as you dress accordingly, you will be fine.

Consider a hat, sunglasses, and maybe even a sweater, because when you get out on the lake, if it’s windy, you’ll be glad you have it!

October is hit or miss. You probably won’t catch the most or the biggest fish in Oct but it can still be good.

It's hot so pack accordingly. The bigger fish really like the shiners (live bait), you can catch them on lures too but not as many and it takes longer.

Don't come with the expectation of catching a monster. You may get lucky but quantity is just as good as quality IMO. May want to consider March for a bass trip in Kissimmee area as this is apparently the spawn season and a shiner drifting over their bed is irresistible. Even a bad day of fishing beats a day at work. ?

If you have kids the 2 hour trip was perfect. Go early morning as was suggested by the Captain...less hot and we were able to catch a fish less then 5 minutes from anchoring.
