The Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is located in Central Florida near the cities of Orlando and Kissimmee. This waterway forms the headwaters of the Everglades, the so-called "river of grass" located in southern Florida. The top bass fishing lake in the Kissimmee Chain is West Lake Tohopekaliga, or "Toho" for short. In addition to West Lake Toho, there are four other lakes in the Kissimmee Chain -- East Lake Toho, Hachineha, Lake Cypress, and Lake Kissimmee. West Lake Toho is connected to East Lake Toho and to Cypress Lake by canals and locks. The entire chain is operated as a flood control project.

Avid anglers flock to the Kissimmee area of Central Florida to experience the bass fishing trip of a lifetime. They travel from all over the United States and many other countries, such as Australia, Japan, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and the United Kingdom to fish Central Florida's grassy waters. The fish that draws both novice and experienced fishermen to this location is the Florida largemouth bass, a fresh water giant that is fished successfully year round in Central Florida.

Florida bass fishing on West Lake Toho this summer has been HOT and FAST. Our trophy bass
fishing charters on Lake Toho have been producing on a average 10 to up over 25 bass by 8:30
am in the morning. Now that's some fast Florida bass action. Not only the number of bass being
caught good but, 8 to up over 10 pounds have been almost on an everyday basis. These numbers
are better then our spawning season. Summer fishing has been fantastic.So, if you are planning
a trip to Central Florida or are already here. Why not give us a call and Capt.Jackson would be
glad to show you where your trophy bass of a lifetime lives! To make a reservation or if you just
have a question please call (800) 738-8144 cell: 407-288-9670 or email email@example.com
Looking forward to hearing from you. Bass wishes, Capt.James Jackson

Summer Forecast: July, August, and September:
Summer is a great time to fish Lake Toho in Kissimmee, Florida -- during the early hours of the day, that is. The weather in Central Florida is almost always nice in the morning -- sunny and clear – but the air heats up quickly as the day wears on. Air temperatures are usually in the mid 70s at daybreak, in the mid 80s by 10 AM, and in the low to mid 90s in the afternoon. During the months of July, August, and September, we recommend our clients book their trophy bass fishing trips for no more than 4, 5, or 6 hours, beginning at daybreak. The first 3 1//2 hours of daylight can be some of the most productive fishing of the year! Although, this is our rainy season, the thunderstorms usually don't occur until late afternoon or evening -- some time after our fishing adventure has ended for the day.

Summer is one of the most enjoyable times to be out on Lake Toho for a little freshwater fishing. The weather in Central Florida at this time of the year is almost always incredibly nice -- sunny and clear. We offer four, five, six, and eight hour trips up until the middle of June. However, when the afternoons become too hot, the bass stop feeding, and we discourage guide trips longer than six hours. As always, the most productive time to fish for trophy bass is during the early hours of the day. A light rain or thunderstorm may occur before the day is over, but it likely will be too late in the day to interrupt your fishing.

Having spent more than half his life on the lake
after moving down from Maryland in 1980, Jackson
has his finger squarely on the pulse of the fishery.
Being on the lake more than 250 days a year will do
that for an angler. So adept is Jackson at sizing up the
lake that he can usually determine whether an area
holds fish on any given day without ever putting a
line in the water. Magic? No. He just seems to know
where the majority of the fish want to be.
"The maidencane by far out-produces hydrilla,"
he says. "I believe 100 percent that the guys who fish
hydrilla are going to be fishing for much smaller fish
than what will be caught out of the maidencane."
Why is the maidencane so much better? In most
cases, the cane is the dominant vegetation near
spawning grounds, those areas having hard, sandy
