Kissimmee Chain of Lakes - West Lake Tohopekaliga (Toho)

May 6, 2017

The water levels on West Lake Toho are not as low as you may read on the internet. This is normally our dry season, and the lake may only be about 1' lower than normal. I happen to like it this way. Under the right conditions, various shell beds are producing a good early moring top water bite. After that, I'm finding the most activity on outside Kissimmee Grass / reed lines, and over submerged, off-shore hydrilla beds. As always, we're also catching good numbers and size on wild shiners. May is typically one of my favortie months to fish West Lake Toho.

Under the right conditions, we're catching good numbers of fish on small top water plugs. Under windy conditions, spinner baits and lipless crank baits are catching fish consistenly throughout the chain of Lakes. Trolling wild, or large domestic, shiners over off-shore grass humps are producing good numbers and quality all day long.
