Florida's Lakes Offer Incredible Fishing

Fishing Locations

Lake Toho (Lake Tohopekaliga)

Lake Toho (Lake Tohopekaliga)

Lake Toho is just minutes from Disney and Orlando and became world famous during 2001 when the all-time B.A.S.S. tournament record for total weight was eclipsed by professional angler Dean Rojas with a total catch of 108 pounds. During the four day competition, two 40-pound-plus limits, 21 bass over 10 pounds, and 251 five-fish limits were brought to the scales. While these professional tournament results are truly impressive, trophy bass are consistently caught from the lake on an annual basis by fishing guides and amateur anglers alike.

 Lake Toho has long been the jewel of the Bass Fishing community and a destination for trophy seekers. With plenty of cover, nutrient saturated water and perfect weather this is the best lake for bass to thrive and flourish to amazing sizes and numbers. Contact any of the bass fishing guides listed in the Orlando Fishing Guide Directory to reserve your next bass fishing adventure.

Lake Butler (Butler Chain of Lakes)

Lake Butler (Butler Chain of Lakes)

Lake Butler or the Butler Chain of Lakes is made up of 11 interconnected lakes totaling 4,720 acres in Orlando. Boat access is available only at ONE county ramp (Lake Islesworth just south of Windermere) and public bank access is almost non-existent.

 Orange County charges a launch fee at the Lake Islesworth ramp and the ramp is not open after dark. The chain is primarily known for its excellent largemouth bass fishing. Most successful bass anglers pay attention to the bottom contours of the lake’s offshore structure where 4- to 5-pound bass are commonly produced. Live shiners free-lined over grass edges, humps, ledges, and drop-offs adjacent to spawning flats is one method to consistently catch quality bass in the winter/spring (Try Lake Butler). Jigging spoons fished over deep-water humps can produce 50-fish days when the water gets cold and fish congregate tightly (Try Little Lake Down). The R.D. Keene ramp at Lake Islesworth (Butler Chain) costs $5/day or $150/year for use of the ramp. Call Orange County at 407-876-6696 (Wed – Sat) for questions regarding R.D. Keene ramp.

Lake Conway (Conway Chain of Lakes)

Lake Conway (Conway Chain of Lakes)

  Lake Conway, or the Conway Chain of lakes as the locals call it is actually four interconnected pools (east, west, middle and south) in the south Orlando area. The larger of only two public boat ramps is located off Hoffner Avenue, two blocks east of Orange Avenue (SR 527).

 Like the Butler Chain, public bank access is, for all practical purposes, non-existent. The chain has nearly 1,800 acres of clear water and hard sand bottom, with beds of peppergrass, eelgrass and hydrilla scattered offshore.

 Largemouth bass fishing is good in every season except summer when the bass often suspend and become difficult to catch. One of Conway’s “claims to fame” is its schooling bass during late fall and early winter. In fact, schooling activity often seems to be best during cold, post-front conditions that shut down many of the area’s shallow lakes.

 Schooling bass can be found by locating surface activity or by watching birds feeding in offshore areas (Try the buoy line in the east pool). Jigging spoons, topwater lures, soft jerkbaits and white spinnerbaits will all catch schooling bass; however, it is important to remain flexible, because what worked one day will often be ignored the next.
