Boca, I have a feeling that you know more about Crooked Lake than I do, but I'll still give it a shot:

It's deep (in places), it's clear (most of the time) and it's stipled with underground springs.

The lake record is 16+lbs and it's still yields some of the largest bass in Polk County, Florida.

Unless the situation has changed, you can't reach the main lake from the public ramp on the south shore.

The only decent ramp I'm aware of is Bob's Landing off Cody Villa Rd ($7/boat).

Naturally every angler has his own hotspots, but I favor sharp sloping bottoms.

There's a place I call the "Bowtie", from Bob's Landing it's about 2 miles at ~330 degrees (circa: N27 49.980 W81 34.250)

Another place I call "Mideast" lies about 2 miles south of the Bowtie, through the narrows (circa: N27 48.385 W81 34.320)

Good Luck buddy :)
