One of the most exciting ways to catch bass here in Florida is sight-fishing. Spotting a fish in shallow water and pitching bait to them, watching them eat, and then setting the hook is a thrill you will never forget. Never worry, all fish are handled properly and released quickly after a photo.
“It was awesome to get the chance to explore the Harris Chain of Lakes with Alex and his son. Leesburg, Florida is a wonderful destination to land some giant largemouth bass. Each trip can be so uniquely different as you can get the opportunity to fish a variety of different lakes.
Alex and his son spent their day on the water at Lake Griffin. It has been a productive lake this time of year. We started out fishing in the canals and catching bass on beds. Once the day warmed up, we moved to some offshore structure.
The bass were in both pre and post-spawn patterns. Targeting fish in deep water hydrilla was a blast for these guys. When it comes to fishing offshore grass, catching bass on lipless crankbaits is the most effective pattern. Slow move the bait through the grass and hold on as you rip that bait through the grass.
Alex and his son had an absolute blast catching over 30 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. Breezy and sunny conditions promoted a strong bite they surely capitalized on. Tight lines until next time!”
Second trip of this update:
“The Harris Chain continues to be a great place to catch large numbers of bass all trip long. It was fun to fish with Adam and his good friend. While they were here in North Central Florida, the Harris Chain always intrigued them. It showed them a great time with plenty of action with artificial lures.
Just like the last trip, the fish were pre and post-spawning patterns. We focused mainly on the fish in post-spawn patterns. Adam and his friend enjoyed catching fish on the mouth of the canals on Lake Griffin.
When it comes to fishing these areas, you can target bass either with a slow presentation or moving. Most of the bites came yet again from a lipless crankbait. The Harris Chain is notorious for its offshore structure and we explore it as the day heated up.
It was awesome to see Adam and his good friend double up on several occasions. Most of the fish caught were in the 1-2 pound range with some quality mixed in. They caught over 30 fish on this trip and are looking forward to coming back soon to cash in on some bigger bass!” – Captain Gino Losi

First Trip of this Report:
“Artificial fishing on the Harris Chain can be a very productive way to catch largemouth bass. For those that love to fish with artificial baits, the Harris Chain is the place to visit!
I had the pleasure of fishing with David, who was staying in The Villages during the winter months of the year. While traveling from Canada, bass fishing and getting outdoors is always a must. All-weather conditions to him are better than what it is back home in Canada.
We adventured out on Lake Griffin in search of largemouth bass. The trip started out in the canals on both ends of the lake. Windy conditions made it ideal to start out in the canals and once it died down to move to several other hot spots. The bass are biting on both senkos and frogs in the back canals.
Once the wind died down, we moved offshore. Every upcoming moon phase and month from now until April-May, you will get bass in pre-spawn phases. The best way to target this bass is with crankbaits and speed worms on the deeper edges of the submerged hydrilla.
David had a blast catching bass all trip long on this fishing trip. He landed 30-40 largemouth bass on his full day trip. I am looking forward to fishing with him again soon!” – Captain Gino Losi
Second Trip of this Report
“After hard Central-North Florida cold fronts, the best thing we can get is some warm days. When this happens, especially when the largemouth bass spawn is in full effect, you can see some exceptional fishing.
I had the opportunity to go fishing with Dennis and his good friend. They wanted to come out and catch some Florida largemouth bass while traveling here on a visit. As a result, it was a fishing trip that neither of them would forget.
During the spawning months of the year, shallow water areas are prime for catching giant Florida largemouth bass. These canals create the perfect environment for bass to come in and make their beds. When this occurs, catching and releasing big bass is highly common especially on the Harris Chain of Lakes.
Dennis and his friend had an epic day on the water. Cruising into a back canal on Lake Griffin, they landed 2 trophy largemouth bass over 8 pounds. Several other bass weighed in at 6-7 pound range. Most of the larger females came off beds and then released so that they could finish their spawning process.
The most effective method to catch largemouth bass in this position is with live bait. Dennis and his friend also used artificial lures to pick off several nice bass. As the day progressed and the conditions got better, more females started moving into this canal.
These guys had an epic day on the water that every angler would dream of. I look forward to sharing another incredible moment like this again with them!” – Captain Gino Losi
