Top 10 Baits from the Harris Chain

Top 10 Baits from the Harris Chain

The typical shallow baits worked for the Harris Chain’s spawning bass during stop No. 2 of the FLW Tour event, which was presented by Lowrance. The offshore grass bite required a different approach, however. For that, pros relied on five primary tools: ChatterBaits, Speed Worms, Senkos, jerkbaits and lipless crankbaits. Here are the details.

Studio Notes - Harris Chain of Lakes

Sandbagging. We are all familiar with the concept. It’s a bit of posturing that occurs before a contest. Competitors downplay their expectations in hopes that their opponents buy into their charade and consequently lower his or her own expectations. READ MORE »

Top 10 Patterns from the Harris Chain

Giant spawning bass kept popping up in the weigh-in bags of some of the FLW Tour’s heavy hitters during the first two days of the Harris Chain event, which was presented by Lowrance. And after Friday’s weigh-in it looked like spawners might produce the kind of mega-bag that it takes to win in Florida. READ MORE »

Johnston Shuts the Door on No. 1

Johnston Shuts the Door on No. 1

There might be no better rivalry in international sports than that of the U.S. versus Canada. And this week, we’ve seen two showdowns between the friendly border nations that ended in dramatic fashion. First, it was the U.S. women’s hockey team defeating Canada in an overtime gold-medal game that ended early Friday morning at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Sunday, it was Team Canada taking the first- and second-place spots at the end of a wild day of fishing that saw several lead changes at the FLW Tour event presented by Lowrance on the Harris Chain.

Harris Chain Day 4 Coverage

The final day of the FLW Tour presented by Lowrance on the Harris Chain is upon us, and like the rest of the tournament it’s going to be a beauty. It is a little bit cooler this morning, but the highs are actually higher for later in the day, and it should be another specular day in Florida. The fishing has been pretty phenomenal this week, with a bevy of 20-pound bags hitting the scale, but it hasn’t exactly been what most expected. Instead of a lot of sight-fishing, anglers are mixing that with offshore bass in the grass, fishing keying on a shad spawn, schooling bass and plain old slow fishing. READ MORE »

Harris Chain Top 5 Patterns – Day 3

Each time a top-30 pro brought a big stringer of spawning bass to the scale on day three at the Harris Chain, it would look like the spawning program was becoming the game to beat in this week’s FLW Tour event, which is presented by Lowrance. But then another guy “fishing out” for prespawn and postspawn transition fish would weigh an equally impressive bag. READ MORE »

Johnston Maintains Lead

Johnston Maintains Lead

Chris Johnston hammered them on day two of the FLW Tour presented by Lowrance on the Harris Chain, but he faltered a little bit on day three. After a hot morning, he failed to maintain throughout the day and weighed only 16 pounds, 12 ounces on the day. Heading into the final day, his total is an even 62 pounds, just 14 ounces ahead of Tony Dumitras and within striking distance of many in the top 10 given the caliber of fish that live in the Harris Chain.

It didn’t take long for Chris Johnston to get the action started during day two of the FLW Tour event presented by Lowrance on the Harris Chain this morning.

Harris Chain Top 5 Patterns - Day 1

Cruising around the Harris Chain on day one of the FLW Tour event presented by Lowrance, it looked like prespawn and postspawn fish would end up comprising the bulk of the day’s catch. Most pros were “fishing out,” in areas where bass would theoretically be staging on their way to and from spawning areas. And that pattern did produce plenty of limits. Yet, the top 10 was split up among pros exclusively targeting spawners, pros targeting a combination of spawners and prespawn/postspawn fish, and pros strictly fishing offshore. READ MORE »

They say you should make hay while the sun shines, and apparently the FLW Tour’s best pros already knew that. They steamed back to Florida’s Harris Chain for the second event of the season, which is presented by Lowrance, and enjoyed a sunny, breezy, all-around beautiful first day that resulted in 11 limits of more than 20 pounds. Their co-angler partners added four more 20-plus bags. READ MORE »
