- Bass Fishing
on Lake Toho right now is great, Water levels are down about 2.5
feet from normal and we are getting some great fish. Just this
last week our clients have caught 5 bass over 8 pounds. Check the
Photo Album to see the latest additions.
With the water level
dropping, navigation is starting to be very tricky, the hydrilla
is topped out all over the place. Fishing on the lake right now is
just getting better daily. with all of the cold winds, the water
temperature has dropped between 57 and 64 degrees, depending on
the day, and the winds. The pattern that we are doing best with
right now is fishing a Rattle Trap in Chrome/Blue on schooling
fish in open water. We are fishing out in 5 to 6 feet of water,
which is usually around toped hydrilla. Other artificial lures
that are doing real good right now is the Zoom Super Fluke in
Smokin Shad, A Black and Chrome Little George, A Carolina rigged 6
inch Black and Blue tail worm, and a White Spinerbait with gold
tandem willow leaf blades. All of these are producing good
results. We are even catching some Huge Crappie up to 15 inches
long on the Rattle Traps.
Of Course the very
best thing that is producing a lot of the Trophy Bass right now is
Large Wild Shiners. The bigger, the better. Some of the other
fishermen on the lake are using smaller shiners, and catching some
good numbers, but when you are using the Large stuff you get fewer
fish, but when you get them, they count. As we get closer and
closer to Christmas, and lower levels of water, I expect fishing
to get even better. The State of Florida is making the fishing on
the lake Catch and Release ONLY between January 1, and June 31,
2003. This means any Trophies caught between these times will have
to be replicas. We are expecting to be very busy between now and
the end of March. We have already taken quite a few reservations,
so if you are planning to come down and want to get on the water,
please call as far in advance as possible.
Indian River, Mosquito
Right now on the Saltwater side, fishing is doing good. There are
schooling Mackerel and Blues just outside of Port Canaveral and
Sebastian Inlet. Water temperatures are holding around 68 to 70
degrees near shore, and you can also find some big Reds and
Tripletail to show up just out of Port Canaveral Buoy Lines. In
the Indian River Lagoon area you can still find nice reds, and
some large trout in real shallow water up until the water
temperatures drop to fast. These big reds, and trout will be
holding around sandy areas in the sun. Another thing that is
getting ready to start happening is the Black Drum getting ready
to spawn in the shallows. They should be moving in shallow about
now getting ready, and tailing in the shallows around the Locks at
Port Canaveral and the Banana River Heading for the No Motor Zone.
We want to wish
Everyone a Safe and Happy Holiday Season this year and say we look
forward to fishing with you all next year. Don't Forget we still
have Gift Certificates that make great Holiday Gifts.
