The largest of the Harris Chain of Lakes, Lake Harris was home to the Bassmaster Team Championship last December. Pros from around the country descended on the area to test their fishing abilities. Deeper than Lake Okeechobee, Lake Harris has some deep holes in its southern portion which has some big lunkers lurking in the depths.
We are located at the Venetian Cove Marina in Leesburg. The marina has great facilities with plenty of parking and easy access to the Lake. Here’s a great plan for a Lake adventure: head out from Venetian Cove and head across Lake Harris to the Dead River. Go up the Dead River into Lake Eustis. Turn to the south and find the opening to the Dora Canal. Travel the 1.2 mile canal getting a front row seat for Florida’s wildlife on display. Head into Lake Dora and over to Tavares for lunch. After lunch retrace your steps and see things you missed the first time. It’ll be a day you’ll always remember!
