Lake Toho (Lake Tohopekaliga, to use its full name) is a 23,000-acre fishing lake in Kissimmee, Florida, known for its professional bass fishing competitions and birdwatching opportunities. This popular lake is home to a staggering amount of freshwater bass, alligators, water snakes and turtles. Named one of the top 100 lakes in the US for topwater fishing, Lake Toho has been welcoming professional fishers since the early 1980s. In 2001, Dean Rojas even broke the national record for a 1-day catch in this very lake.
