New Fish Attractors on Lake Toho

Lake Toho is one of the world's best bass lakes. FWC is making it even better.

This is a story directly from a page on our very own FWC. These people are so cool there are no words to describe them. We've worked with dozens of them personally, and their pure dedication to our resources is evident in each and every one of them. Yeah, they are employees, and yeah, they are just earning a living. But the way they earn it and the fact that they are actually paid to work on something they love so very much - our resources - is a blessing to them.

Lake Toho

Unless you have fished Lake Toho, you cannot imagine the bass fishery in these grassy regions. The bass are hungry, they're challenging, and man can they get big. It's a wonderful resource being made even better by the addition of FWC "Fish Attractors".

And that makes them a blessing to us. Here's the story.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is installing new artificial fish attractors on Lake Tohopekaliga, also known as Lake Toho, in Osceola County this month. The new artificial fish attractors, made of synthetic brush, are expected to be more effective and durable than the oak trees used as attractors in previous years. About 50 new brush units will be installed at each of the eight existing artificial fish attractor sites on the lake. Lake Toho is a popular fishing area throughout the year.

The artificial fish attractor areas, about 1/8-acre each, should provide structure for many freshwater fish species, and good fishing opportunities for anglers. Volunteers will help construct and deploy the artificial fish attractors on Lake Toho throughout February. All fish attractors will be marked. The public is asked to not disturb or remove the FWC buoys near the artificial fish attractor sites.
