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): 260

Trophy Club (10 – 12.9 pounds): 59

 

 Current Forecast:

Largemouth bass anglers should direct their efforts in and around Goblets Cove, South Steel Beach, Lanier and Browns points, Little Grassy Island, and offshore vegetative communities. Golden shiners worked along the hydrilla holes and edges always work well for big bass. Topwater baits and lipless crankbaits should be worked when topwater shad busting feeding activities are observed.

For anglers seeking panfish, try both North and South Steer Beaches and Browns Point. Live bait such as crickets and red wigglers are always a good bet to catch fish.



FWC Facts:
