Captain’s Note:

During the prime months of the year, bass will be in a wide variety of patterns. This month, largemouth bass will spawn around the proper moon phases. April should have another strong spawn. Weather plays a large role in how strong the spawn will be each month.

After major cold fronts like have been occurring during this time of year, the largemouth bass will pull off the beds. They will be headed toward the deeper water and grass structures that retain heat. Once the weather switches and a warming trend occur, you will see fish go back on beds.

Use either slow-moving soft plastics or a moving bait like a chatter bait in order to locate fish. During the cooler water temperature days, the slower presentation tends to work the best.

March Winter Haven Fishing 1“I had the pleasure of fishing with Michael, Mike, and Craig on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes. This is one beautiful place to visit and experience. It has a lot of great bass fishing as well. Michael, Mike, and Craig were traveling to Central Florida on a vacation and wanted to go out fishing for Florida largemouth bass.

They were coming from the cold state of Pennsylvania. While doing so, they wanted to enjoy Florida outdoors and sunshine. Bass fishing was on the menu and they had a great time on the water. Sunny, windy, and cloudy conditions made the trip interesting.

Michael, Mike, and Craig caught over 10 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The most successful method to do so was wild-caught live shiners. After dialing them in on the action, they started catching fish consistently. Shiner fishing can get tricky for most anglers that are not used to it but you pick it up rather quickly!

These guys had a great time and I am looking forward to getting them back out on the water again soon!”

On my second trip, the bite was on fire with some bigger bass!

Lakeland, Florida is a fantastic place to come visit here in Central Florida. If you are looking for an outdoor experience like no other, the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes can provide you with one.

I had the pleasure of fishing with A.J and Calvin traveling from Indiana to get out of the cold weather. While doing so, they wanted to explore what bass fishing had to offer. Sunny and breezy conditions made for a strong bite.

Water temperatures were in the range of 68-70 degrees. Cold fronts have been moving in and out of Florida but the weather is stable now. As the temperatures begin to rise, you will begin to see even stronger action.

The trip started out with a bass over 5 pounds and several others in the 2-3 pound range. The first spot slowed down and then we moved around a bit to not only see the chain of lakes but also find some new water to fish. After a short while, the fish bite turned on again.

AJ and Calvin ended their day with over 15 largemouth bass in the boat. They caught 2 over 5 pounds and several 3-4 pound bass as well. The action is red hot and is only going to continue to get better as the warm weather stays.

AJ and Calvin had a great time on the water and I am looking forward to seeing them again soon!” – Captain Bill Goudy Jr
