Surrounded by saltwater and an abundance of freshwater inland lakes, the state of Florida is well known for its fantastic fishing, luring thousands of fishing fanatics to its many shores each year. Inland lakes are particularly popular because they have some of the best bass fishing in the world, with largemouth bass being the most popular freshwater game fish in Florida.
Largemouth bass are not only one of the most sought after freshwater fish in Florida, it’s also the official state freshwater fish. This popular species is in season all year, so they’re always a sure bet for the snowbirds and visitors that Florida reels in year after year.
The Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and Lake Okeechobee are always popular choices for bass fishing – both ranking in the top 25 of Bassmaster’s top 100 bass lakes of 2014. The Kissimmee Chain of Lakes consists of eight lakes with Lake Tohopealiga, Lake Cypress and Lake Kissimmee standing apart as the cream of the crop of this chain.
Boasting a fantastic location with close proximity to all eight of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes, Rainbow RV Resort has outstanding accommodations and a full amenity package so you can indulge a little when you’re in-between fishing excursions. Spacious, full hookup RV sites and gorgeous, fully furnished one bedroom cottages give you the option to stay your way. Relax in the heated swimming pool and spa, join some friends for a game of billiards or enjoy the weekly music jam at the outdoor music pavilion. There is also a dog park, so your pet can play and socialize with other pets or simply take care of business.
If you want to visit one of the best bass fishing lakes in the United States, then Lake Okeechobee is the place to be. As the largest freshwater lake in Florida, Lake Okeechobee is known worldwide for its bass fishing with thirty-plus pounders consistently being weighed in.
