Jeff and Kevin Juday from outside of Indianapolis, In. came down for some awesome Okeechobee Bass Fishing catching 42 bass on 6 dozen shiners in under 4 hrs! The bass sure played along today eating every shiner within a minute of casting it in the water. The fishing gets like this often here on Lake O where catching 40-60 bass in a days trip is not unheard of. There was a cold front coming in which tends to turn the fish on so that helped as well. Thanks for coming fellas and we will see you next year!

Ryan Matylewicz and Kelsey Sands from Pa. had an awesome day on Lake O catching nearly 40 bass with 3 over 5 lbs. and 1 over 6 lbs. The morning started out 36 degrees but by about 9 am the temps were  quite nice and the fishing was fantastic. These guys have been fishing kayak tourneys up North all Summer and Fall and have never seen big bass like these. They have vowed to comer back next year and I look forward to seeing them and possibly an engagement.

Richard Herr and his wife of 40 years came fishing with us this week and what a day they had! We caught several very nice fish with a total of 37 bass in 4 hrs on live wild shiners. This time of the year the fishing and weather is perfect. The wild life such as gators, ducks, coots, red-wing blackbirds and more are all enjoying the cooler weather and can often be seen out and about enjoying the day. I really enjoy taking people on the lake who have never seen it and hearing them later describe the lake to their wives and loved ones. Many clients say that this trip has been on their bucket list for years so having the privilege of taking them for that trip is awesome to me.

Keith Hayes and his children Connor and Rebecca had there best day ever fishing with Okeechobee Fishing Guides/Shellen Guide Service today. Connor caught 11 bass total Rebeccca caught and 10 total and Keith caught 8 for a total of 29 largemouth in 4 hrs. What an awesome day to be able to take a couple of young anglers to “hooked” on fishing. There is nothing better for me as a guide than to take kids fishing and watch their faces light up when they set into their first Okeechobee Bass. Thanks for coming Hayes family and we will see you again!
