Winter Haven Chain of Lakes

Tip of the week 

Since the Full moon, the bass pushed off the beds and they have been hungry. Several reports of large bass on clousers. Poppers are catching smaller bass on the edges. The cold front will shut down the fishing till later in the week, expect it to pick up this weekend.

Seven-day forecast 

Grass carp, Nile Perch/Tilapia will begin to bed near the bass. The grass eaters will have wider and shallower beds. This is the time of year we get lots of tilapia reports. Fish for the bass, and you might get one to bite. River and lake levels are up substantially with recent rain, but rivers are still low. Lake levels may stabilize for the ext week or two.
