Winter Haven Chain

Recommended Posts

Anybody got any tips for the Winter Haven Chain I went out there for the first time this past weekend and it was ruff? I mainly worked the shoreline in Eloise and Winterset.

Are you on a boat or off the bank?

On Winterset I've had luck with finesse presentations since the water is so clear, just have to get through the grass. I also like using bluegill/perch looking lures in Winterset since there are so many perch/sunfish in the lake. Other lakes in the chain I have had luck throwing jigs w/ zoom chunks, chatterbaits, t-rigs along the grasslines/weeds. 

The Chain can be rough but when they do hit it is worth it. Goodluck!

Fishing out of a boat I caught one in Winterset and 2 in Lulu spent all day out there. Spent the most time in Eloise but no luck in there. Mainly fished the shorelines.

I'll take a look at my maps when I get home and let you know if I have any hotspots marked for Eloise or Lulu. A lot of it is hitting the drop-offs/holes offshore, but the shorelines can produce as well.

South side of Eloise has some good holes around the edge of the lake. If you have a depth finder I would go scout those holes out. The East side of Lulu has a lot of depth variation as well.
