Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides

October 27, 2011

I fished with Jim & Christy Bradley from Colorado today, they are avid anglers and have fished all over the U.S., but had never fished Okeechobee until today, we had a banner day catching bass after bass, new friends and a great day of fishing, I love my job!

This week fall fishing finally got started on Lake Okeechobee, the lake has risen to 13 feet which a great level for superb fishing. Today I fished with George & Rob Minix from Indiana, we have fished together many times and always have a lot of laughs. We caught 43 bass today with a big fish of 8 1/2 lbs. Okeechobee is on!

I fished with Jose Ortega and his sons Julian and Sebastian today. The guys have fished with us several times and are a lot of fun to be with. The fishing was not up to par today, the water has come up 18 inches in the last month and is still rising. Better days are coming!

I fished with Ron Waller and his friend Gene today. The lake has risen 6 inches this week and the bass are biting, we caught bass non-stop until our bait was gone.

The water temps have dropped 10 degrees in the last week, which shocked the fish a bit, but today they started biting again. As the water cools the big Bass will go on the prowl to feed! I fished with Russ Luce, Ed Beebe and their Friend Fran today. The guys are from Mass. and were in awe of the Big “O”. We caught Bass on shiners and rattle traps.
