It’s normal for an average fisherman to catch over 40 or more bass per day and 10 pound fish are almost the everyday fish! How exciting is that for you and your family to come and catch a fish?
Catching trophy sized largemouth bass is a definitely draw to the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, but there is also great speck and shellcracker fishing that is eye catching. The 22,700-acre and 4 mile width, Lake Tohopekaliga which is also known as Lake Toho, is well known for being one of the finest bass-fishing spots anywhere by professional fisherman all the way to the amateurs. During the winter and spring months, expect to have the most successful bass fishing with the live bait, and during the warmer months it is common for anglers to use plastic worms or crankbait. The record for Lake Toho for woman’s world record for bass fishing is a whopping 14 pound, 5 oz bass! The Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish commission has indicated that there is a bass that weighs over 10 pounds for every 5 acres of lake. That’s a lot of bass. If there is a recorded 22,700 acre of water that means, by calculation there is over 4540 ten or more pound bass fish in this lake alone! WOW!
Another great lake to see on this chain of lakes is Lake Kissimmee, which has a variety of landscape and grassland that provides shelter for huge populations of bass and crappie. Located about 40 miles south of Orlando and 18 miles east of Lake Wales.

Also, fisherman that aren’t as experienced as those coming for those tournaments can enjoy Lake Kissimmee with all it has to offer. You can often hit the water before sunrise in search of that special bass to hang on our wall and show your pride. And spend time cruising down North Cove and Brahma Island with your live bait and wait to catch an amazing fish that will have you coming back for more! Under good weather conditions, fisherman should be able to enjoy the surroundings of lily pads, cattail and hydrilla beds that surround the shore line.
