This Harris Chain fishing update can help put a smile on your face!
Utilize this time to learn more about the local lakes and plan your next outdoor adventure when social interactions are allowed again. We hope you enjoy this fishing update with our local experts and professional fishing guides.
Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
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

“Some of the best fishing trips are the ones that you get to celebrate something. Fishing on Lake Okeechobee is always a special moment but when you have a birthday wish and it comes true, it is even more remarkable!
I had the pleasure of fishing with Riley, a young man with a birthday wish. His wish was to explore and fish the beautiful Lake Okeechobee. Riley’s parents, Amy and Doug, made that happen for him. It was an honor to get the chance to show this wonderful family around for a fishing adventure they would not forget.
The fishing was strong with light tackle. Riley was an exceptional fisherman and knew how to put the bass in the boat. He also made sure to document his fishing trip for his YouTube channel. Nothing like spending a day on the water with an angler that loves to fish and wants to learn more about it.
Riley and his family caught over 20 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The biggest fish weighed in around 3-4 pounds. The action is red hot and is only going to continue to get better in the upcoming weeks.
I am looking forward to getting back out on the water with them!”
My second trip of the day with a long time repeat client was just as good
“As always, spending time on the water with long-time repeat client Jim Robertson was amazing. This man travels from Texas to land Florida largemouth bass multiple times a year. When he does, we always have a great time and catch a number of fish.
Jim is a seasoned angler that loves to throw artificial baits on both bait casters and spinning rods. Working and fishing with light tackle here on Lake Okeechobee is an experience worth exploring. Unfortunately, arthritis in his hands confines him to using a spinning reel for a portion of the day.
One of the best parts of fishing with Jim is that every trip is a new adventure. We were able to get around some outside grass structure and land some beautiful largemouth bass in the 3-4 pound range. Jim was catching fish all trip long, making for a successful day on the water.
Lake Okeechobee largemouth bass pulls harder than any other fish in the country. You can have an absolute blast on your next fishing adventure here in Florida.
Fishing with Captain Mark Rose out of Belle Glade, FL
“Lake Okeechobee is fishing really well. I had the pleasure of fishing with Paul and Bill. While coming to Florida and enjoying the Florida sunshine, they wanted to catch some largemouth bass. Lake Okeechobee was the perfect place for them especially out of Belle Glade, Florida.
We spent three days on the water and each day they caught numbers of bass. The average day brought out 15-20 bass to the boat. When fishing Lake Okeechobee, you can catch fish with either or both live bait and artificial lures. By far, the most productive fishing comes from live bait but you can have a blast catching fish with artificial lures as well.
Paul and Bill caught fish on both. The best artificial lures to use was soft-plastic flukes and senkos. As the water temperatures rise, the bite will consistently get better. These guys caught fish up to 3 pounds with no giants in the boat.
All-in-all, everyone on board had a fantastic time on the water and I am looking forward to seeing them back out on the water again soon!” – Captain Mark Rose

Enjoy this fishing update for Lake Toho Bass Fishing with our Local Experts and Professional Fishing Captains:
Fishing with Captain John Leech
“Lake Toho is a famous lake known for its bass fishing. Every year, the lake gets a lot of publicity from local and national tournaments. When the tournaments come, it is best to stay off the water until the afternoon when all the boats have finished fishing. Luckily, all tournaments use artificial lures and most of our trips are done with live bait.
I had the pleasure and opportunity to fish with Ethan and Mike. While exploring what Central Florida had to offer, getting out on Lake Toho was a must. This big beautiful lake has some big bass that can be caught almost all year round. Great weather promoted some great fishing that they surely won’t forget.
Ethan and Mike capitalized a strong bite on their quick 4-hour fishing adventure. The biggest bass caught on this trip weighed in at 6 pounds, which was a giant largemouth bass. You can expect catches like this during this time of year. Larger females are spawning and in post-spawn ready to either protect their bed or gorge on bait.
These guys had an awesome trip and will cherish these fishing memories. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again with them in the future!” – Captain John Leech
Fishing with Captain Steve Niemoeller
“Florida bass fishing is best done with live bait. Most anglers when it comes to fishing for largemouth bass, don’t associate live bait with it. When you come to Florida, using live bait can produce the results and actions you want. Watching a big bass blow a shiner out of the water is a thrill you will never forget!
I had the pleasure of fishing with Justin and his brother Brandon. They were given a bass fishing trip as a present and went out while they were here in Central Florida. Lake Toho Bass Fishing was the perfect way to soak in the Florida sun and get outdoors.
This was a quick 6-hour fishing trip. Justin and Brandon never had the chance to fish with wild-caught live shiners. This was their first time fishing with them and they had a great time. They caught over 20 largemouth bass on their trip with the biggest weighing right around 5 pounds. As well, several fish weighed in at 2-3 pounds.
The wind was blowing which kept the bite strong but also pushed us to find some protected areas. Justin and Brandon will be back for more action in the near future and I am looking forward to our next fishing trip!” – Captain Steve Niemoeller
“I had the pleasure of fishing with Kevin and his wife from Tennessee. A Lake Toho fishing trip was a great idea to soak in the fresh air and enjoy the outdoors. The fishing conditions were sporadic with moments of rain, wind, and cloudy weather but that did not stop the bass from biting.
Kevin and his wife enjoyed every moment on the water. They caught over 15 largemouth bass on their fishing trip. The most productive method to catching these bass were wild-caught live shiners. As well, the bass were chewing on artificial baits including speed worms, soft plastic worms, and flukes.
When fishing for bass in Florida, focus your attention on submerged hydrilla on the main lake areas. This grass structure will attract fish and help you land that big bass you are after. Storms rolled through during the trip and shut down the bite. Once it moved through, Kevin and his wife picked away at several more quality fish.
They caught fish up to 4 pounds on this fishing trip. It was a blast watching them reel in these strong fighting fish. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again with them in the future!”
Second trip of this update:
“It was a great pleasure to fish with Dennis, Steve, and Mark. While spending some time in Central Florida, they wanted to get out bass fishing. It was going to be a quick 4-hour afternoon fishing trip with some steady action.
Wild-caught shiners were the best way to catch largemouth on this trip as well. We went back to very similar areas as the last trip fishing over submerged hydrilla. The bass would come out from this structure and attack the bait.
Dennis, Steve, and Mark enjoyed the Florida sunshine and fought the windy conditions at the same time. Overall, they had a successful day on the water with over 10 largemouth bass in the boat up to 5 pounds. Nothing beats spending time on the water with your friends will reeling in quality largemouth bass. Everyone on board had a fantastic time and are looking forward to next time!” – Captain Brent Nelson

We hope to get the chance to show you around while staying away from people and the crowds on an isolation Kissimmee bass fishing trip.
The St. Johns River is a location in North Florida known for its incredible fishing. It is also a very fragile fishery that can get influenced by the saltwater that can inevitably travel through it as it is connected to the Atlantic Ocean.

You can spend days and hours trying to determine what the best areas are to fish. One thing we can say, whether you are there for fishing or just to enjoy a day on the water, the St. Johns River can provide you with a trip of a lifetime.

Check out this Trophy Bass Fishing Report from the St. Johns River in North Florida:
Fishing with Captain Gino Losi
“I had the ultimate pleasure of fishing with David while he was visiting North Florida. When doing so, we explored the St. Johns River and it showed him one amazing time. When you think about Florida bass fishing, this trip truly encompasses everything you can ask for. Solid numbers, great conditions, and trophy bass!
David started the day catching staging fish with wild-caught live shiners on shell bars. It was a blast for him to target these fish and land some decent numbers early in the day. As the trip progressed, we moved into the back canals where the fun really began.
David picked up some artificial baits and started pitching a creature bait around docks and shallow water structure. During this time, he caught several fish in the 3-5 pound range. While sight fishing and enjoying the bite with artificial lures, he also floated some live bait in the deeper water of the canal hoping to target migrating bass pulling into the canal to spawn.
This process landed David the fish of a lifetime. All of a sudden, a bass struck and sucked down one of the live baits. David waited until the right time, reeled down on this fish, and set the hook. When he did, the biggest bass of his life surfaced. This fish fought hard and gave him a fight he will never forget. It weighed in at 9 pounds 15 ounces. 1 ounce shy of 10 pounds.
Watching David land this fish and watch his face light up made for the ultimate day on the water. I am lucky to have been able to experience this with him and I know that he will be back for more action in the near future!”
Second trip of this update:
“Similarly to the last trip, the St. Johns River showed Bob and his wife a great time on the water. They did not cash in on any true trophy largemouth bass but had a fun time catching quality fish all trip long. While Bob and his wife were spending time in North Florida, a bass fishing trip was a great way for them to escape into the outdoors.
Water and air temperatures were on the rise on this fishing trip after a previous cold front moved in. During changes like such, we were able to find staging fish close to spawning flats and canals. Both live and artificial baits were productive on this fishing trip.
The larger fish caught on this trip weighing in at over 5 pounds were caught on beds. When targeting bedding fish, a creature bait like a lizard was very successful. Wild-shiners also helped land several beautiful North Florida largemouth bass. At the end of the day, they caught over 15 bass on their trip and could not have been happier.
Always glad to be a part of anglers fishing experiences and hope to see them back on the water soon!” – Captain Gino Losi

Check out this Winter Haven Chain of Lakes Fishing Update:
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.
Hop on board and I can help dial you in on all the action here on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes!
Fishing with Captain Bill Goudy Jr.
“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

Bass fishing is better than ever here in North Florida. All across the state of Florida, you can find some beautiful fishing and amazing weather. Getting outdoors is a great way to stay clear of people and get the full Florida experience. The Rodman Reservoir is a fantastic place to catch your new personal best largemouth bass. It is home to some of the biggest bass in the state.
March Rodman Fishing Trips can really bring a lot of joy and excitement to your next travel adventure!
During the month of March, you can capitalize on some of the best fishing opportunities. This month, the largemouth bass spawn is in full effect. Each trip is unique and you can’t ever fully predict how or when the bite is truly going to produce for you. One trip can produce solid numbers of quality fish and another trip can put multiple trophy largemouth bass in the boat. There is one thing for sure, you will have the best chance at a trophy largemouth bass here on the Rodman Reservoir.
Our local experts can really increase your chances of landing that big fish. As you will see below, whether you want to catch largemouth bass or speckled perch (crappie or speck), this is the destination for you. Years of experience and knowledge has led to helping dial in on the action and getting you on the fish all trip long.
“I had the pleasure of having the opportunity to fish with Bill and his good friends Dave. They were traveling locally to explore what the Rodman Reservoir had to offer. Catching a large Florida largemouth bass was the goal and when you come to this beautiful fishing destination, you can have the opportunity to.
It was a cold start to the day during this fishing trip. These cooler winter months here in the United States bring about cooler temperatures all across the state, especially in the northern region. Once the sun came out and warmed things up, so did the bass.
Wild-caught live shiners were the best way to catch bass on this fishing trip. The Rodman will produce that big bite you are after and Dave will be the first one to tell you. He landed his personal best largemouth bass weighing in at 7 pounds 9 ounces. I worked hard to improve it and land an even bigger fish, and we sure did.
Bill and Dave had a wonderful time on the water and I am looking forward to getting them back out on the water soon!” – Captain Ken Walker
Fishing with Captain David Lang
“Did you know that speckled perch or crappie or speck can be caught within the Rodman Reservoir? This fishing paradise is a great place to not only land bass but also speck. Spend a day fishing for a speck on the Rodman Reservoir.
I had the pleasure of fishing with James, who was traveling from Georgia looking to get away in North Florida. While doing so, a March Rodman Reservoir trip was a great opportunity to land some tasty treats. Sunny and beautiful weather here in Florida made for a great day on the water.
James caught several nice crappies with the biggest weighing in at 1 pound 14 ounces. You truly can’t beat the action here for two of the best species to catch in Florida. Live minnows and artificial jigs were the most effective way to land speck on this fishing trip.
James had a blast and will be back soon. I am looking forward to our next adventure!” – Captain David Lang
Fishing with Captain Peter T
“It is always nice to spend time with clients for multiple days. You get the chance to know them better and provide them the trip they are exactly looking for. Most clients come down and just want to get outdoors and land some fish and others are looking to celebrate special occasions.
I had the ultimate pleasure of fishing with Ed and his son Jason. This was a Father-Son trip that meant a lot to them. They were not only celebrating Ed’s birthday but also the retirement of Ed. While they were traveling from Delaware, Ed and Jason had to get out on the water.
The fishing was fantastic and very productive for both days. Calm conditions made the weather and heated up the water. They caught over 40 fish in two days of fishing. The largest bass weighed in at 7 pounds 4 ounces, which was a personal best for Ed. 5 more fish were caught between 5 and 6 pounds.
Ed and Jason could not have asked for better days of fishing here on the Rodman Reservoir. They had a great time and are looking forward to making their way back here on their next trip to Florida!” – Captain Peter T
A March Rodman Fishing Trip can produce some of the best fishing you have ever seen. Every trip is different and can be tailored to your needs. The bass fishing is at its best and will continue to get better throughout the next several weeks. If you are looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime, this is the perfect destination for you.
