Well, it didn't take long to get the 2014 Orlando trophy bass fishing season started with a bang! While most of America was still sleeping after the late night New Years eve party I was out on Lake Toho with Chris and his son Sam. The morning started off great with 8 bass in the first hour but nothing over 4 lbs so we moved to some other areas and actually had a very uneventful 3 hours until the last spot of the day. It's not unusual to see fish behave differently from one day to the next in Orlando because our weather and wind directions can vary greatly even in the same day.
On this day the winds had changed from the West to a strong North wind and made it possible to fish some areas that previously had been difficult to fish. We have also had areas sprayed for hydrilla opening up more fishing areas. One that I had been to the day earlier and caught a 4 lb bass while using artificials told me to come back on a day when we had live bait to see what else might be there.
The decision paid off for Chris and Sam with 12 bass in about an hour and a half with the biggest coming in at 10lbs 6 oz and another that Chris missed in the same range. It was a great way to start the New Year and a great way to finish their Orlando Bass Fishing trip.
If you are thinking of coming to Orlando for a trophy bass fishing trip I hope you will consider Florida Bass Adventures for your next outing. I guide on Lake Toho, the Kissimmee Chain and the St Johns River putting clients on trophy bass like the one pictured to the left.
