Lake Toho Bass Fishing and Orlando area Lakes Forecast
May Bass Fishing Forecast
With the weather calming down, cold fronts, or even cool fronts now a thing of the past, our water temperatures are now starting to warm up steadily. Early morning schooling action will be very common on Lakes Toho, Butler Chain and Johns Lake. Prop baits, torpedoes, buzz baits and toads will be very good early morning producers for some quality bass.
Grass beds and hydrilla will be very good areas to target using worms, senko type baits, spinner baits and shallow running crank baits. Depending on the body of water, docks will be holding bass as usual and typically some good quality largemouth bass.Skipping senko type baits and jigs under the docks can and will catch some very nice Florida trophy bass as docks make for a great area of shade for our bass.
Typical spring rains will have water flowing thru canals and creeks which will have bass ambushing bait fish off and on during the day. Rattle traps will be a great bait for these bass, as well as using for picking up aggressive bass and locating them quickly. Spinner baits worked through scattered grass patches is also another great way for catching bass, as they will be cruising thru the grasses chasing the bait fish. Flipping these same grass beds with craw baits will also produce some aggressive strikes and some very nice largemouth bass down here.
This is also the time of the year where booking the split day trips becomes more popular, as folks can catch them on top water lures first thing in the morning and finish their day off in the afternoon catching the bass with top water baits. This is my favorite type of action, getting to watch the bass blow up on your bait, there is nothing more exciting than see that!
