October Bass Fishing in Central Florida is off the hook folks! This is the time of year when we generally get our first cool front of the year, which not only helps to bring down the air temperatures, but it will also lower the temperature of the water in our lakes. Bass fishing will be good on all of our lakes, Lake Toho, Lake Kissimmee and Butler Chain of lakes just to name a few.
Here in Florida we have year round bass fishing, which means trophy bass can be caught all year long, but your best chances are when the weather starts cooling off and the bass really start feeding up for the spawn. October is usually the start of some very good schooling action, as the bass start really feeding up on the shad and wild shiners in our lakes.
One of the best baits to use this time of year is no doubt the wild shiner, these baits will not only produce some good numbers, but some great sized bass as well. Many anglers prefer not to use live bait, and opt for the artificial baits, and that always works for us. Top baits will definitely be top water lures early on in the day, switching off to spinner baits and soft plastics during the day. Just remember, even as the day warms up, it’s not hot like it is during the summer months, so that top water lure can work for you the entire day.
Bass will be hitting the shallower waters now that things are cooling off for us, and the toads and senko type baits are really going to start putting some quality bass into the boat for some great pictures. Be sure to check out our two and three day bass fishing trip specials. These trips become very popular this time of year and folks have a blast catching bass.
