Apparently there must be, since it's name is Lake Land... I'll be up there this weekend, anyone got any spots or lakes I should check out (fishable from shore)?? Can't travel too far 'cause I'll be with the girl and we're visiting her father. Don't know exactly where in Lakeland I'll be, but I'll let you know when I find out. Thanks!

You know very little about Lakeland. ;D I was born and raised in Polk County and although there are a few bad spots, there are far more good spots and it's hardly "the hood" with many multi million dollar homes in the area.  There are some great Lakes in the area... look into Tenoroc. Also... there are better lakes in some of the other towns IMO... I just took fishizzle fishing this past Monday and we did VERY well. Nothing smaller than 1lb and most in the 2-3lb range. We had at least 3 fish in the 20" range. Here's a couple pics from Monday...

Saddle Creek is a good spot and it's technically still in Lakeland, too. Lk Gibson is also good (at times) but I don't know of anywhere to bank fish it. The best place to bank fish will be Tenoroc fish management area or Saddle Creek Park since they have several lakes that allow bank anglers to fish.

Thanks a lot guys! It looks like Saddle Creek is just about right near where I'll be staying so I'll probably check it out! How far away from there is Tenoroc?

Tenoroc is probably 4 miles. It's right off of Combee Rd. Actually, Tenorc joins right up to Sadle Creek Park, but you have to drive a few miles more to the entrance and check in point. Saddle Creek Park doesn't require a pass or check in, but Tenoroc is $3 per person over 16 or under 65. The fish in my avatar is a Tenoroc Bass weighing in at close to 11 lbs. I've caught them up to about 13 lbs out of Tenoroc. The lake I posted pics of above I have caught Bass over 13 lbs! There's some big fish in the area you'll be fishing, so keep your fingers crossed! ;)
