Harris Chain

Recommended Posts

Could you guys give me any help with the Harris Chain? I'll be there the end of this week for the first time. I'm guessing lipless and shallow to mid running crankbaits and flippin. Can you give me any info on which lake in the chain is best? any tips would be greatly appreciated

the best advice i could give you is to crank up the truck and drive down to the kissimmee chain. :)

I would fish the 9th st canal with a curly tail worm, 1/8 weight pegged and light line as slowly as you can stand it.  Or just west of the canal on the shell bar.   From the mouth of 9th st canal work as far off the grass as you can cast with crank bait or rattle trap and when you start bringing up shells you are in the right place.

I would put in at Venetian Gardens, N end of Harris, and I would not do it until 9 am.  Venetian is only about 1/4 from 9th st.

The bite is tough and the big females were not in the canals saturday and with the cold fronts moving thru....well....good luck.  

Actually warmers advice is probably the best, now that I think about it.

Harris is a tough nut to crack, I have been trying to crack it for a year now with very little success.  Be carefull and watch the weather closely because Harris is a BIG water lake and can get dangerous quickly.
