The Top Ten Best Fishing Spots in FL to Catch Trophy Gamefish


There are thousands of great fishing spots in Florida but some are obviously better than others in terms of producing trophy fish. Here are my choices for the top 10 best fishing lakes in Florida:

LAKE JACKSON

Located just north of Tallahassee, this shallow 4,000-acre natural lake is best around the Church Cove and Cattle Gap areas in the north and central portions.

LOW BUSH BAY

Low Bush Bay is very deep and has a wide variety of underwater structure and feisty gamefish. Unfortunately, however, the bay is no longer open to the public.

LAKE TARPON

Lake Tarpon is located in Pinellas County on Florida's west coast, about 25 miles northwest of Tampa. Some suggested areas for fishing: the edges of cattails and bulrush, offshore clumps of vegetation, near Brooker creek and in the canal on the south end of the lake.

TENOROC AREA

Formerly a phosphate mine less than 10 miles northeast of Lakeland, this 6,400-acre property is a series of marshes and small lakes with loads of great fish. Fishing Tenoroc is a treat.

THE EVERGLADES

The two best areas are the 210 square miles of Everglades marsh connected with perimeter canals, and the 730 square miles of wetlands bordered by the canal system.

STICK MARSH RESERVOIR

Created by the flooding of 6,500 acres of former farmland. Bass are abundant here - the southern portion of Farm 13 is best.

THE OKEECHOBEE

Probably Florida's most famous bass fishing location, Lake Okeechobee (the "Big O") is located in south central Florida and covers 730 square miles. Lake Okeechobee is easily accessible from both the east and west coast of Florida. The best spots are around Eagle Bay Island, Fish eating Bay, and Pelican Bay.

LAKE WOEHKAYAPKA

Woehkayapka means "Walk-in-Water," and is a 7,534-acre lake off S.R. 60 about 50 miles south of Orlando. Woehkayapka is just a few miles east of Lake Wales and very close to Lake Kissimmee.

LAKE KISSIMMEE

Actually part of a chain of lakes in Polk and Osceola counties, Lake Kissimmee is a 35,000 acre gem for fishing. Also known for great fishing is West Lake Tohopekaliga, an 18,810-acre shallow lake just south of the city of Kissimmee.

LAKE GEORGE

Lake George is the second largest lake in Florida. Lake George is a natural lake on the St. Johns River.
