Fishing around Zephyrhills, FL

I am going to be visiting my father in law around the holidays and looking for bass fishing location ideas in that area.  He is fairly new to the area and just bought a used boat so any local knowledge would be appreciated.  thanks

your best chance is schooling activity this time of year if you are trying to put him on numbers... polk county has lots of great lakes to fish... winter haven chain, eagle lake, lake mcleod, etc...

all of these lakes are going to fish tough at this time of year, but if you hit it at the right time it can be good.  there are some fish pushing up shallow, just not any great size to them..

You also have Lake Tarpon on Highway 19.Just take State Road 54 west to Highway 19 turn left.go about

3-5 miles to Anderson Park(on the left) thats where the ramp is. there's a $5 launch fee.Do a search on Lake Tarpon or check the TBO.com for fishing reports. Good fishing!!

Everything local is a low water right now.  Winter have chain is way low.  I can't get thru most of the canals.  I take my kids over to saddle creek, in Lakeland a lot.  Easy access and no crowds.  Mostly trolling motor though.  Deep water and hydrilla, this is a great place to catch fish and I got 2 over 5 lbs this year.  Another good spot is Teneroc, it's a little bit of a hassle to check in and most of the lakes are TM only but they have some biiiiiiiiiggggggg fish in them.

Another good lake is Johns Lake in Clermont. About 45 min from Zhills but worth the ride.  The lake is fairly clear and unsually good fishing.
