Winter Haven Chain of Lakes

Tip of the week 

Bass fishing has slowed with the cold weather. Winter pattern has finally started with Bass seeking deeper and warmer water. Mornings are slow and evenings are better. Deep flies like couser minnows will drop to the places that bass are hunkering. Structure near deep water is a best bet.

Seven-day forecast 

Shad fishing on the St Johns near hwy 46 has started and should continue to improve. The Peace River is still extemely low. This river is highly dependent on rainfall. Plan to drag the kayak over sand bars if you dare to go. Local lakes are high or above average from the past wet season with moderately tannic water.
