Winter Haven Chain of Lakes

Tip of the week 

Bluegill are good. Cooler surface temps in the morning have made it the preferred time to fish. Some anglers report that white bead chain clousers 6sz are catching fish in their lake. Foam spiders in black or white 10sz are very reliable. Sprogs are catching Bluegill on the surface in the morning. Rubber legged Copper John dropper is doing well on tandem rigs. Rubber legs seem to be important, slow moving is important.

Seven-day forecast 

With another amazing forecast for the week, fishing should continue to be excellent. Topwater flies fish better when there is a light breeze and consistently this shouldbe in the morning. Some anglers have started fishing Crappie (Specs) at night. Water temps need to be below 70 for consistent schooling
