Tough day on the lake

One of my favorite lakes in Florida has to be a lake in Polk County called Crooked Lake. This lake has everything; deep water, deep grass lines, shallow grass clumps and points. Crooked Lake has everything a bass needs to become fat, happy and ready to be caught. Now, if I could only figure out where they all went, I’d be happy.

About eight years ago I visited Crooked Lake for the first time. It was awesome. There was cover everywhere for bass to hide in, and the lake was full of forage for them to feed on. I remember catching over 20 bass in the first hour of a tournament out there years ago. My partner, who is my wife, had an absolute blast on that trip and actually quit fishing that day because her forearm was sore from setting the hook on so many bass.
