TrophyCatch is FWC's citizen-science program that rewards anglers for documenting and releasing trophy bass 8 pounds or larger. The following TrophyCatch bass have been submitted from Lake Tohopekaliga:

Lunker Club (8 – 9.9 pounds): 244

Trophy Club (10 – 12.9 pounds): 55

 

 Current Forecast:

Anglers will look for flowing water conditions where bass will concentrate. Historically, the mouth of Shingle Creek, St Cloud canal, and Partins Ditch have been good locations to find bass just after rainfalls. If moving water is not available, anglers should spend time in native vegetative communities. Fishing the open pockets and edges of hydrilla, maidencane and knotgrass should produce fish. Little Grassy Island, Goblets Cove, and North Steer Beach are good areas to try. Golden shiners will work well. Also, try the usual bass fair, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and plastic worms.

Black Crappie fishing should be heating up as the weather cools. Drifting live minnows in open water near the mouth of Shingle Creek, Little Grassy Island and Goblets Cove should produce fish.
