Default Fishing at Lake Tohopekaliga, Orland Florida

Finally made my it down to Orlando Florida and had a chance to get out and fish Lake Tohopekaliga. I was enlighten quickly on the 10 to 12 foot gators which is a little unnerving to say the least. The wind was blowing pretty strong at 12 to 14 miles and hour. The sun was bright and it was a muggy 91 degree's but the lake was beautiful and full of energy with air boats and helicopters buzzing around, which made fishing difficult. It still was a great experience since I had never fished Orlando before and lake was famous for producing 10 to 12 pound bass. I had a few good strikes using topwater frogs but mostly spinner baits where producing.
The water was murky and difficult to see past the first few inches and kayaking was tough and not the best way to fish the lake. I would recommend using a boat especially since the gentlemen at the marina mentioned that kayaks don't usually venture out much because of the large gator population. Lot's of weed beds throughout the lake. The average water depth was about 6 feet and the water temp was right around 70 degree's. Over all it was a pleasant experience and I would fish the lake again but with boat instead of a kayak for sure.
