Kissimmee Chain of Lakes - West Lake Tohopekaliga (Toho)

January 16, 2017

A warm start to the winter has the Toho Bass in full-spawn mode. Though the artificial lure fishing has not been as good as it can be, the wild shiner (live bait) bite has made up for it. The stability of our weather should get the lure bite going any day now.

The Butler Chain of Lakes in Windermere, Flordia

January 16, 2017

For those of you that have fished with me before, you already know that this is one of my favorite places to fish from January - April. However, the Butler Chain likes cold weather. So far, our cold fronts have been too spaced out to keep water temps in the range that works best for this fishery. A couple more cold fronts and the fishing should get goood!

Fish Icon Fishing Tackle

I supply all the fishing tackle. Quality spinning rods and left/right hand retrieve bait casters from 13 Fishing. I also supply all the necessary terminal tackle & lures. Though, feel free to bring your own.


I can provide free transportation to and from most Orlando / Kissimmee area hotels and resorts. Further destinations may require a small fee.
