Florida Fishing on the Harris Chain

Dad and I have enjoyed fishing in the Lake Harris Chain of lakes in Central Florida for the past few weeks. This is classic Florida fishing in weeds, shallow water, and is a lot of fun.

One of the amazing things about this area is the wildlife that is around. While this is not the best picture, this bald eagle was one of several we usually see. There are a couple of nesting pair of eagles in the area and it is fun to watch them hunt.

This osprey shows that the eagles are not alone. There are many ospreys around and we see many each day. These guys really know how to fish -- they are much more productive than we are!

The Harris Chain of lakes is connected by several canals and rivers which provide a huge place to fish and explore. This is Haines Creek which is about 6 miles long and connects Lake Eustis and Lake Griffin. It is also a great place to fish!
Dad caught this nice bass while we were out. The weather is finally starting to warm up and we are looking forward to fishing in the next few weeks.
