The Land O' Lakes area has awesome bass lakes. Prime time bass fishing starts in May and runs through August. The average size is larger than in most areas. Four and five-pound bass are common. 6+ pounders are possible. The weather and time of year will dictate which areas will produce the most action. Being on these waters 5 to 6 days a week helps Mark Haynes Guide Service to consistently put you on the bass, and offer them baits that have been working.
Whether you enjoy buzzing spinnerbaits or top waters over the shallow structure, fishing around docks, or jigging plastics on deep weed points and rock bars, it all works here!
Rates are for a full-day trip per party/group. Includes approximately 8 hours of fishing time.
