Toho is a hard lake to figure out. Iíve fished it prolly 20 times and I might have caught 5 bass. Nothing over 5. Cypress which is the next lake I have fished 3 times and have caught a ton of fish. My wife caught a 8.5 pounder our first trip there (I locked through toho after not getting a bite in 5 hours) within 5 mins. Stick Marsh is fun to fish but itís ďeasyĒ since itís a fish management area. The guides are right about Okeechobee. They are scattered right now. I have a classic there next weekend. If i find em Iíll pass the info along. Are you bringing a boat? If so you can put in at Big toho marina and fish toho, cypress, hatch, and Kissimmee without taking the boat out of the water. I would suggest that you do it that way. Trailing takes a while since these lakes are out of the city. If you do have a boat you should try and sneak to Garcia or Kenansville. They are tricky to run but man they are great to fish and donít get fished like the chain does. Watch out for running over gators down here. They donít bother you but you may get close to em
Grab a dozen shiners for back up and hold on. I donít use em but my wife and nephew always have some and they catch GIANTS!!!!

Thatís all you need. Make sure they are all loaded with 65 pound braid lol. Youíll have fun. Itís a sight to see. Driving the grass and reed trails are so fun lol. Shoot me a PM when you get here and Iíll let you know whatís going on.
PS. If you can put your fingers in the water then thereís gators and bass in it. What I was told when I moved here. Holds true so far.
