Headwaters Lake, also known as Farm 13, is undoubtedly one of the best freshwater fishing destinations in the world; it has consistent fishing throughout the year for anglers to catch largemouth bass anytime. In addition, Headwaters Lake Fishing is one of the best spots to target trophy largemouth bass during the spawning season.

Headwaters Lake provides quality bass fishing for every type of angler regardless of experience or skill level.

Anglers travel to Headwaters from around the world every year to experience trophy bass fishing on this beautiful lake. Apart from a protective fishing trip catching trophy largemouth bass, anglers will enjoy the wildlife and other great sites of the lake.

Top Bass Fishing Destination

The famous Headwaters Lake is potentially the spot that provides anglers with their best chance at a trophy bass of a lifetime. This east coast/treasure coast fishery is possibly the nation’s most abundant natural fishery.

Anglers can use whichever fishing method they prefer since both live bait and artificial lures usually work here. Headwaters Lake charters specialize in helping people find what works best for them to have the ultimate freshwater trip.

Why Is Headwaters Lake So Productive

Headwaters Lake began as an effort by the St Johns River Water Management District in 1991 to filter runoff from the farmland before it entered the St Johns River.

The area was once a vegetable farm near swampland but became a thriving haven for wildlife of various species, including the famous trophy bass. Palm trees, wild orange trees, bushes, and shrubs all formed unique structures and food sources for the bass that migrated into Headwaters Lake, through Stick Marsh from the St. Johns River.

These events caused the highest growth rate in the local bass ever recorded in Florida at an impressive 2.5 pounds per year.

Thanks to everyone involved in this process, anglers on board Headwaters Lake charters will be targeting largemouth bass in one of the most productive and thriving freshwater lakes in the world.
