Locations That Offer Some of the Best Fishing In Florida
Winter Haven’s “Chain of Lakes”
Just north of Lake Wales is a group of lakes known as the “Winter Haven Chain.” Winter Haven’s “Chain of Lakes” is a unique series of 16 lakes connected by navigable canals and is often referred to as a “boater’s paradise.” If you love bass fishing, several local guides can help you land the perfect trophy bass.
Known to the locals as Lake Toho, Lake Tohopekaliga has some of the best fishing in Florida. This 22,000+ acre lake, located in Kissimmee, is one of the most famous largemouth bass fishing lakes in the entire country!
Surrounded by the Lake Kissimmee State Park, Lake Kissimmee (a part of another chain of lakes) is a haven for fishermen seeking bluegill, black crappie, and shell cracker, along with bass.
Like most other Florida lakes, Lake Istokpoga is shallow, averaging 4 to 8 feet in depth. Anglers can test their wade fishing skills and maybe take home a sunfish, bream, or bluegill for dinner.
