I fished with Jerry James from Fl. and Bob Mrzwak from Indiana today. The bite was very good today although it was chilly and windy. The water temperatures are hovering in the mid 60’s which has a tendency to slow the bite, especially when coupled with a full moon. We have gotten spoiled by to many 50 to 60 bass days, and consider 25 to 35 fish days as slow. A great problem to have I guess.

 I fished with Paul kelly and his son today, it was an extremely windy day and the fishing was not as good as it should have been. Using artificial baits when you have shiners in the boat is like taking a knife to a gunfight.

I fished with Mary Flaitz owner of Coastal Angler Magazine (lakeland) and her friend Larry today. It was an extremely windy day which made anchoring very difficult. We had a great day of catching together.

I fished with Mark Watson from Illinois and his father Jay today. Both guys are great anglers so we had a great time catching bass and swapping stories. Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing is unparalled in the United States.

I fished with John & Sally Woods from Vero Bch today, we had a great day together. We got rained on several times, but the bass didn’t seem to mind so neither did we. Great day with great people.

I fished with Phillip Crawford and Harold from Montauk today, we had the best day of the fall, especially for numbers, we had 9 dozen shiners and they were all eaten and we were back at the ramp by 11. Lake Okeechobee is so very good, if you love to Bass fish now is the time to visit.

I fished with Tony & Danyel Chin from Coral Ridge today, we have fished together several times before and they are always fun to have in the Ranger. We caught some great bass again today, with Danyel catching the big Bass of the day. The weather was perfect today light breeze with 70 degrees temps. December is a great month for big Bass. There are several openings in my book for December, it is a great time to catch the bass of a lifetime. Give me a call and let’s go fishing!

November provided the kind of Bass fishing we have grown to expect, with many Big Bass and daily catch rates that were off the charts. December started out with a bang! I fished with Ray Villwock & Evan from Jupiter today. We caught bass from just after sun-up until we ran out of bait around 11am. Beside catching large numbers of Bass, we caught some giant bass too. If you are looking for that fish of a lifetime, December is a great time to catch one, many years the largest bass of the year are caught in December.
