Louis Gubser from Switzerland caught several nice fish today although the weather is cooling off the fish are still chewing! He caught 18 fish on live wild shiners and another half dozen on artificial. Now that the water is finally cooling off the BIG females will start showing up to feed. The crappie fishing has started off slow this year but should quickly start to pick up now that the water temp. has finally dropped. With all the bad publicity from “algae” this year the fishing has still been great. The native grasses are starting to come back and as they do the fishing will continue to get better and better. We are still averaging 24-40 fish a day with some days being better.
Lynn will turn 89 in Jan. and these guys have been fishing with us since 2007. Nick on the left was only 12 or 13 when they started fishing with us now he has graduated college and is working as a structural engineer in s. Carolina. They have come every year a day or two before Thanksgiving and it has always been a blast. We caught 40 or so bass today on live wild shiners. Come on out and catch some big bass with Okeechobee Fishing Guides and OkeechobeeBassFishing.com
Dennis Carrier and his son from Maine came fishing with Okeechobee Fishing Guides/Okeechobee Bass Fishing and what an awesome day we had! We caught 37 Big O bass in a hours on live wild shiners. These guys came from freezing lakes and temps. to sunny, warm Florida to catch these GIANT bass. The weather has been perfect and the BIG bass are moving in. These guys fish lots of tournaments in Maine but they never catch bass like this!
These too are great fishermen and women. They caught 45 bass in ONLY 5 hrs with 6 fish over 5 lbs. Jinah catching her personal best with Okeechobee Fishing Guides being 5lbs 13oz. They are coming back again Monday for round 2! The fish are really eating right now and should only continue to get better and better as we plunge into our Fall/Winter season. These 2 are loving this Florida weather and are happy to be out of Boston during the BIG storm headed their way.
This is Jackson and his Dad Bryan, and his grandfather Mac. They had an AWESOME day on Lake O while the wives were out shopping. Jackson loved catching all these big O bass and his father and grandfather loved watching him wack one after another as well. They have vowed to make this a yearly thing after Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to take them. Thanks for coming guys and good luck during baseball season this year Jackson!

Today I have the privilege of fishing with Steve and his wife Cindi from Missouri. The weather was perfect and the fishing was awesome! We caught over 30 fish in a 6hr trip on live wild shiners. They drove all the way down to fish the awesome lake and to catch some Okeechobee Largemouth with Okeechobee Fishing Guides and Shellen Guide Service. The fishing is getting better and better each day and I am beginning to get excited for the upcoming Fall Season. If you haven’t booked your trip NOW is the time.
Steve caught this 6lb 8oz bucket lips to add to his collection of monsters on the wall!
