What a great November, it closed out just like it started, with bass eating whatever bait you are using. Shiners or artificials are working, obviously shiners are responsible for most of our big bass and we caught a lot of them in November! I fished with Dennis Smith from Indiana and we caught bass from start to finish, another great day. Here comes December, stay tuned!

I was joined in my boat today by Len Ciulla and his grandsons Nick & Eric from NC. It has been an incredible run of catching on Lake Okeechobee, with some of the best fishing I have ever seen. As you can see from the picture Nick is a member of the Clemson Tigers bass fishing team.

I fished with Cheryl Wilson from Guntersville Alabama again today, last year her brother joined us, but work got in the way this year. I have caught a lot of bass over the years but have never been on such a great bite as there is going on right now. The catching is one bass after another and there are more quality sized bass than ever before. It is a great time to fish Lake okeechobee!

I fished with three generations of the Reynolds family from Buffalo NY, the catching was fast today, every cast resulting in a bite, numerous times as soon as it hit the water. It was hard to keep up with baiting the rods and landing bass. What a terrfific day!

I fished with 2 Alberto’s today, the guys were part of the Cornerstone group fishing day. The beautiful sunrise started our day off right, and then a few hours later the wind started blowing 25-30mph making fishing very tough. We caught over 20 bass for the morning with a big fish of just under 5 pounds.

November 17, 2011

I fished with Ken Hagens and his brother Eugene today, the guys are from Ky and are hardcore fishermen. We fished artificial baits and caught bass on topwater, spinnerbait, fluke, sluggo and skinny dipper.

November 16, 2011 Afternoon

This afternoon I fished with Newlyweds Mark & Alyssa Lewandowski from Pa. They have been honeymooning in Fla. for the last week and decided they wanted to see if the bass were really as big in Lake Okeechobee as they had heard. The lake did not disappoint them, if anything the fish bit better than this morning. We had a great afternoon of catching and laughing, thats hard to beat!


November 16, 2011

I had fished with two different groups of anglers today, my morning trip was with Kevin Applegate and his uncle Sam from NC. We caught bass as fast as we could get the bait in the water. We did n0ot get any big fish into the boat this morning however, although it was terrific fishing.


November 15, 2011

I fished with Eric Wesel and his 17 year old daughter Bianca today. It was Biancas first bass fishing trip and she had a ball catching Okeechobee Bass. It was incredibly foggy this morning so it took us longer than usual to get to our spot, but once we did the bite was steady. Eric caught a bass that weighed 9 pounds, the fish are healthy and fat, it should be another terrific spawn.


November 13, 2011

We continued a family tradition today, each year around my birthday the boys and now the grandkids and I go shiner fishing. They were pretty excited knowing that this year we have been on some very large bass. Jordan and Emma both caught their largest bass ever today, so there were a lot of smiles on the boat. Ethan caught the most and also ate the most candy, it was a great day!

Day 2 with Tom and Courtney and it was just as good, maybe better. The quality and the number of bass on Lake Okeechobee right now is unbelievable. The fishing is the best I have ever seen, day after day. How long will this incredible bite last? who knows, but we are going to enjoy the heck out of it while it last.

I fished with Tom Allgood and his daughter Courtney again today, we fished last spring and they decided to return for the great November bite. High Winds, 52 degrees, full moon and a cold front moving through. I was a little apprehensive this morning about the bite, the Power Pole proved it’s worth today though holding us in place in very rough water. The morning started very slow, we caught 5 fish in the first couple of hours and then they just turned on and started chewing. Just to put everything in perspective the smallest fish in the pictures weighed five pounds. It was an awesome day of fishing we caught numbers and big Bass as you can see. Courtney caught the biggest bass of her life four times today, a five, then a six, then a seven and finally and 8 1/2 pounder, that really made her smile!


November 9, 2011

I fished with George Burttram from S.C. today. It was a perfect overcast morning and the bass were on fire. George was very thrilled when one of the first fish we caught was a 7 pound Bass, we stuck her in the live well for pictures later and then release. The way it worked that 7 pound bass didn’t make the cut, George caught 2 more bass both over 8 pounds. The action was non-stop. I won’t even mention the one that got away!


November 6, 2011

A beautiful day on Lake Okeechobee today and I spent it with the Davis family from Palm Beach. Lee, Dolly and their five year old twins Evaline & Wade joined me for a morning of fishing fun. We caught lots of bass, but aside from that we had drinks & snacks, both very important elements on a fishing trip. It was a wonderful day of fishing, full of laughs and giggles.

Today was a very blustery chilly day on Lake Okeechobee and I was joined by long time friends and clients Danny and Al Scott and Al’s 8 year old grandson Michael. I have told anglers many times that some of the worst weather days on the lake have provided some of the best fishing and today followed that pattern. We caught numbers of bass as well as catching big fish. Young Michael Scott is all smiles and won’t soon forget his first shiner trip with grandpa on Lake Okeechobee.

November 4, 2011

I fished with Dave Gluyaf and his wife Lauri today. It was a beautiful morning with light winds and slightly overcast, the bass on Lake Okeechobee are chewing, we caught bass on shiners, top-water and a spinner-bait.


November 3, 2011

I fished with Charlie Bolton from Ft. Pierce and his friend Alan Casom from Va. today. Alan is an avid angler and was jazzed up to get to catching this morning. We had non-stop action from dawn until we ran out of bait. Another great day on Lake Okeechobee, November has always been one of the best months for numbers, and big fish on Okeechobee and this year is no different.


November 2, 2011

Today was the Office Depot Foundation Tournament, 60 boats, 150 anglers, we had a great day catching over 50 bass, we never really had a big fish on, although we did catch 6 or 7 bass around 5 pounds. I fished with Heather, Dolly & Mike, great people supporting the charity. The five winning bass weighed 24 pounds and we were in the top five with 19 1/2 pounds.
