A Day on Toho, ICUP Event fishing with Team Brand-It

I enjoyed a fantastic week at this year’s July ICAST event, and it kicked off with time on the water at Lake Toho with two exceptional anglers. First off this is my 1st visit to Florida, so the fact that I was fishing on the first day there is nothing short of special. A big thank you to Jerrod Albright and Josh Ireland = Team Brand-It.

A real treat to experience this type of water, chomp!

The gator is not obvious but if look close he’s there.

These two might as well be named Hoover and Dyson, (Dyson always has his foot on the gunwale), they’re excellent anglers, and I was thrilled that I could catch my first Florida bass behind them!

The bite and conditions were tough, we didn’t smash them, but we brought in a hard to come by limit, high on the curve for sure.

Located in central Florida a few minutes south of Orlando, Lake Toho is short for Lake Tohopekaliga.

The FLW hosts this event, and it is in association with the ICAST conference. A registered team, two pro anglers are paired with a member of the media. The trio engages on a 6-hour tournament against other participants.

Of course, everyone wants to have a good day fishing and be competitive, but this event represents much more.  It is an excellent and fun opportunity to have face time with members of the fishing community that you might not otherwise meet. If you're a member of the media it's a great way to put some local time on the water and produce shots to go with your press coverage.

A big thank you, to Jerrod Albright and Josh Ireland/Team Brand-It for making yourselves available and the time spent out on the water, nothing short of spectacular. Also a shout out to Colton Albright for allowing his dad to fish on his birthday. Colton turned 3 on this day, Happy belated birthday! Colton can already handle a baitcasting reel, wow.
