July Bass Fishing Forecast for Lake Toho, East Lake Toho and Disney area Lakes
July is a hot month here in Florida, but believe me folks, the bass are still biting down here.
It’s the same thing every year, the weatherman, who is over paid and wrong 99% of the time seems to try to scare people away with crazy out of the world hurricane forecasts. We as guides follow the weather like a hawk circling over a lake in search of his next victim, the largemouth bass or crappie.
Although July is typically a hot month, you can still fish comfortably for 6 hours and catch some very nice Florida largemouth bass. Artificial lures will still be producing good. Typically some good early morning top water action, before switching up to a Strike King Redeye Shad or spinner bait. Senko type baits and worms will also produce good catches, as well as wild shiners. Two good lakes to bass fishing will be Lake Toho and East Lake Toho. Typically Lake Toho is known for the trophy bass, but believe me, East Lake Toho has been doing pretty good itself. Evident is when it takes 24 pounds to win a tournament, which was just done on East Lake Toho during Spring Fling. Plenty of 5 plus pound bass were weighed in.
Disney area lakes such as Butler Chain of Lakes is a great summer month place to bass fish. Many trophy bass are caught on this great chain of lakes every year. With all the vegitation growing out here, from hydrilla to eel grass, the bass have plenty of ambush areas for getting bait fish, and your bait! These lakes have deep drop offs in them, with many of the deep areas reaching into to the 20 foot mark, with the deepest hole running around 44 feet deep, bass can and will be stacked up just about anywhere out here. Carolina Rigs, drop shot and deep diving crank baits along with the typical wild shiners will catch some great numbers out here and there is good size to match those numbers.
