Our clients have been having excellent fishing trips throughout the Fall Season in Orlando with the bass feed leading up to the first wave of spawning. Late September brought the first cold fronts of the year but unlike most years, the cold weather continued into October and November. It's not cold by Northern standards but anytime morning temps stay in the low 60's in Florida it's considered chilly.
Each wave of cold fronts gradually brought water temps on Lake Toho and Orlando Lakes down allowing bass to acclimate to changing temperatures rather than shock them for a time. This has grouped up numbers of bass into areas that have large amounts of bait fish and they have not been shy about eating.
Today's trip, November 18 was with Al Weilacher And his son Brian for 4 hours of fishing on Lake Toho. Having both fished in Florida before on the St Johns River they had experience using live bait and were looking forward to a fun morning of fishing.
I was a bit more skeptical because for the last week after a strong front we had been catching high numbers of bass (20-30) on 4 hour trips, the larger fish were inconsistent.
One unbreakable rule on my boat, I don't post photos of the same fish with multiple clients holding it. Unless, it was caught again after we released it. Then, it's just unbelievable luck that has to count!
Anyway, here are there photos from the trip with Al's 8.2 as the biggest. If you would like to see yourself on this page with a story like this, pick up the phone and book a trip! It's the only way it can happen.
