Winter Haven Chain of Lakes

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Small bass are schooling around sunset and now at sunrise as a midge hatch is attracting baitfish to the center of the lakes. Fish with small white baitfish patterns. Topwater is still producing, especially as the water warms. Poppers and sliders at sunrise and sunset. Use your smallest-size 6-8-for action on small bass and bluegill. Working the edges seems to be more productive than casting into the center. And White foam spiders are always productive on bluegill.are in full force now, and bluegill love 'em.

Seven-day forecast 

Crappie season is full on. If you like to keep a few fish for the skillet, this is the best time of year to catch them. As warmer weather prevails, smaller bass will be great on poppers and sliders. With cool weather bass will push deeper and your best bet will be crappie.
