Harris Chain


The most recent FLW Tour event was on the Harris Chain of lakes out of Leesburg, Florida. To be honest, I haven’t ever fished it before and really had not heard that many good things about it. It ended up being a great place to fish though. I caught some giants in practice including a nine one day and a ten another. Those fish came on a Strike King KVD 1.5. The tournament went well for me. I finished 11th, just ounces out of the top ten cut. I had two different patterns going. I caught my fish on a shallow crankbait over grass and also on a ½ ounce Strike King Red Eye Shad, gold with black back. My other pattern was flipping shallow pads and reeds in three to five feet of water with a Strike King Cut-R-Worm. I would look forward to going there again. It’s a great fishery. Next stop on the tour is Lake Cumberland Kentucky, and I’m ready to get it going!
