Lake County abounds with fishin’ holes—1,400 named lakes for starters and 7 out of the top 11 lakes for monster largemouth bass! The pros have lots to like about Lake after years of high-profile tournaments like the Bass Pro Shops Big Bass Tour, Bassmaster Elite Series, Bassmaster Southern Opens and more! But it’s not all about the bass. Fishing enthusiasts catch their limits of striped bass, blue gill, sunfish and channel catfish, too.
"As a professional bass fisherman there is no better place to live and practice than in Lake County, Florida.
With well over 1,000 named lakes and countless miles of rivers and canals, Lake County is an ideal
location to hone my skills and test new equipment. Coupled with the fact that the Harris Chain of Lakes is a big bass factory,
I know I have the opportunity to catch a 10-pounder on every cast. Fishing in Lake County is must for every bass angler's bucket list."
"Every year, we choose to have the majority of our tournaments right here in Lake County.
Whether it's the renowned Harris Chain, Johns Lake or the Clermont (Chain), our anglers enjoy
catching lots of fish with a chance to land a giant trophy bass. There's no better place to be in
the country when it comes to serious bass fishing. Come check out Lake County Florida and you'll be hooked!"
Fishers of Men Legacy Director, Central Florida Division
"Lake County has been a great fishing location for me since I was 12 years old.
I have had a lot of success fishing in tournaments on the Harris Chain, St. Johns River and
Johns Lake, not to mention the hundreds of successful guide trips I have taken my clients on in Lake County.
In February of 2015 one of my guide trip clients caught the biggest bass of his life,
a 12 pound 1 ounce trophy catch largemouth bass in Lake Harris."
