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.

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

“Cold fronts made the fishing tougher than normal on this trip. Luckily, I was able to adjust some tactics to make it happen. One of the best parts about being a fishing captain is the challenges you have to face on a daily basis. When you overcome them, you have the greatest joy!
I had the pleasure of fishing with Jose, who was traveling from Illinois on vacation. While doing so, Florida bass fishing was an activity he was interested in exploring. Staying near Lakeland, he had several choices but the Winter Haven Chain was one that appealed to him the most.
The bite may have been slower than normal but we caught several quality largemouth bass. Jose caught over 10 largemouth on this fishing trip with the biggest weighing in at 5 pounds. It happened to be his personal best. Nothing like fishing in tough conditions and still pulling out a personal best. It was a trip he would not forget!
Sunny, Calm, and Breezy conditions did help stir up some activity for Jose. Wild-caught shiners were the most effective method to land bass on this tough day. Jose will be back for more action and I am looking forward to getting him back out on the water!”
It was not long after this fishing trip that the conditions changed and some bigger bass started to roll in!
“This trip, I had the pleasure of fishing with Tom, who was traveling from Pennsylvania. He was looking to escape the cold weather and soak up some Florida sun. While doing so, I helped him get on some quality Florida largemouth bass on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes.
Sunny and calm fishing conditions really got the bass fired up. Tom enjoyed every moment reeling in over 10 largemouth bass on his quick fishing trip. Wild-caught live shiners was yet again the best method to land all his fish during this time of year. If you want to catch quality largemouth bass, live bait is the best way to do so.
Tom caught his personal best bass on this fishing trip. This weighed in at 6 pounds. He also caught a beautiful 5-pound bass as well. You really can’t beat the action and it is only going to continue to get better. Big bass are rolling in as the weather begins to stabilize.
Tom had a fantastic time exploring the Winter Haven Chain. I am looking forward to the opportunity to get him back out on the water!” – Captain Bill Goudy Jr.

The Chain of Lakes:
In reality, there are two Winter Haven Chain of Lakes located in Central Florida. It is separated by the Northern Chain and the Southern Chain. Most of the lakes are interconnected on each chain with variability in access due to water levels.
On the Northern Chain, you have ten lakes in total with 8 of them interconnected. Each lake has its own unique feel. You will get the chance to see incredible nature and beautiful views of Central Florida homes.

Fishing Winter Haven Chain of Lakes:
My favorite part about fishing Winter Haven Chain of Lakes is that on every cast, you can catch a big fish! You never know what you will set the hook into. I’ve caught bass and helped put anglers on fish of all sizes. Artificial baits and live bait works exceptionally well in this fishery.
Fishing the Winter Haven Chain is unique. You have so many lakes to choose from. You also have the ability to fish different structures and the clarity of the water. Deep to shallow, stained to clear, grass or brush piles can show you different parts of the lakes and land you a fish of a lifetime.
Artificial vs Live Bait
After spending time fishing this chain, I determined the best artificial baits to catch bass. Hollow-body frogs, soft-plastic worms, jerk baits, swim baits, topwater, and more can help produce a strong bite.
Wild-caught live shiners happen to be one of the most productive ways to fish this beautiful fishery. If you love to catch large numbers of quality bass, live bait is the way to go. When a fish strikes a live bait, you really can never know what the size of that fish will be. It’s an exhilarating experience.
Also, one of the best parts about it is that it’s a family-oriented fishery with so much to offer. From the sightseeing to the fishing, you will never get bored exploring this chain. Beautiful homes add to the adventure and trip on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes.

LegoLand is right near this chain of lakes as well. You can catch fish while insight of all the fun things you can do there as well. Explore bass fishing and then a day on the water slides of this action-packed park.

Check out this Central Florida Bass Fishing Update with our Local Experts:
Captain Brent Nelson had the pleasure of fishing with Louis on the Butler Chain of Lakes. This fishery is one of the best for catching fish all year round but especially during the warmer months of the year. One of the main reasons is that it has much deeper water that allows the bass to stay cool. If you are going to explore Florida for bass, wild-caught live shiners is the best method to catch fish.
The main structure of focus on this fishing trip was submerged hydrilla and vegetation. Even though live bait put most of the bass in the boat, artificial baits were effective as well. The most effective lures were spinner baits, flukes, top waters, and a shakey head worm. Louis caught numbers of bass weighing up to 4.5 pounds.
Captain Brent is looking forward to the next opportunity to get Louis on some bass in the future!
