2.Lake Victoria behind Wellington Mall (Private Community) fish often. Many LMB over 3Lbs. http://www.yellowbook.com/profile/the-estates-at-wellington-green_1502715611.html?addressId=0

i have caught a few nice size LMB. normally in the early AM hours.

4. Canal Behind Ultima Fitness in Wellington. Leads into Lake Wellington. Fished for 25 minutes 2/24/08 and caught a few nice fish from 2 to 3 lbs.

Ill update more later, if anyone else has some hot spots they are willing to let out, feel free to respond.

In West Palm Beach ?   From the bank I would try Okeeheelee park.  It is located on Forest Hill Blvd just east of the turnpike. No T-Pike exit though.  The water is clear and plenty of grass.  A weighted craw or worm produce well. Junebug or watermelon seed do good for me there.  Also the Turnpike canal which is accessible from the N.W corner of Forest Hill and the park (by the bicycle track) is good for Peacocks.

I just noticed you live in Wellington.  Try the back parts of Wellington or in the Aero club.  There are tons of canals that hold big fish.  They may not look like it but trust me, they hold plenty of and big fish.  I'm supposed to go Sunday morning with a friend who's totals so far are over 60 fish in 5 hours.  Several 4 and 3 pounders.  He's been fishing after work this past week in Wellington tearing them up.  On Flukes.

Find Pierson rd.  Take that west from Southshore Dr.  to Equestrian Club Rd.  Also check out Golden Point Lane.   I haven't fished those spots in a couple years since I got my boat but I used to do pretty good there.  I'll take my boat out if you want.  We can hit Osborne or Lake Clarke.

Update from last sunday. Went out to western wellington area canals. Fished canal behind aero club for aprox 3 hours with 4 fish to show all below 1 lb. Fished t rigged weightless senkos and Zoom Flukes. Seems like everywhere i fish i cant find anything of considerable size. Im plagued by dinks. The wind has been the real killer lately. By afternoon the winds are blowing so hard its hard to fish anything weightless. Where are the BIG BASS ????

Hey I was reading your thread - I live pretty close to Wellington and had never heard of fishing those canals before, although you can catch some nice fish throughout most of the Fl. canals. -I have fished some in Delray (by Lake Ida) - but that was a while ago.  I'm heading over to Lake Osborn tomorrow.

JHawk,  I went out and on my own and found the place my buddy was telling me about.  I caught 5 in 20 minutes up to 2 pounds.  the wind was a KILLER to me too.  Don't give up on the wellington canals/lakes.  Actually, I think the problem is too many developments have gone up and consumed all the good fishing areas by making it private property.  Curious though, Have you tried those ponds behind the Wellington mall?  I seen some Guats using a cast net in them the other day.
