When you fish with shiners on Lake Okeechobee you never know who is coming to dinner, this 25 inch Snook gulped a shiner and put up an incredible fight before coming to boat side for a quick picture. This particular shiner spot has provided lots of Bass, Snook, Tarpon and Sunshine Bass, it's a very unique spot.
Brent traveled all the way from NY to fish with us, looks like it was worth the trip! Caught on a wild shiner.
Sometimes Bass Fishing on Lake Okeechobee is about more than catching big bass! Ethan and his best fishing buddy Christopher had a great day of fishing, catching bass on an old school red shad culprit worm. The early morning spinner bait bite in the Kissimmee Grass around King's Bar and along the Buckhead Ridge grassline is still producing, white skirted willow leaf blades are drawing numerous strikes, many quality fish are in the mix, chasing shad in the grass and eating our spinner baits as they pass overhead! Once the sun gets well up into the sky a slower approach with a plastic worm or senko will continue to produce.
Bill Luckey Jr. matched his father with this big Bass, it was a great day for big Bass and large numbers of bass too! Wild shiners will catch em, even when other baits can't!
Summertime shiner fishing on Lake Okeechobee is great! 35 fish per morning trip and big one's are in the mix!
