11 / 25
11. Lake Tohopekaliga, Florida (plus Kissimmee Chain of Lakes) [22,700 acres] An American Bass Anglers event here in January took 23.01 to win, with an 8.84 taking big-fish honors. The Lakeland Bassmasters had a February derby here, and it took 22.8 to win, and a 10.25 big fish was weighed in. However, weights dropped quickly, and the majority of anglers were not weighing in limits. So, Toho is currently a fickle beast. If you get on the right fish, it could change your life. It’s just as likely, though, that you would have preferred spending the day at Disney.
