Today I took out Mike Mitchell from Colorado and we caught several REALLY nice fish with the biggest being 7lbs. He works with fish as a biologist in Colorado tracking Bass, Crappie, and a few species of trout in private and public streams and lakes. I learned some things and enjoyed hearing about the environmental impacts that he has seen since he started study the waters over 20 years ago. He is involved in several conservation initiatives that will help to sustain our habitats for future anglers. I look forward to fishing with him again in the near future and learning more about the projects that he is working on throughout North America and abroad.
Steve caught all the good fish today, catching these beauties all within about an hr. These 4 fish all weigh over 5 lbs. Phil and Louie also caught several nice fish but Steve took the day with these 4. Come and join on this winter for some great fishing and commodore with friends, family, or wife/girlfriend.

Jay Wildheur and his girlfriend caught these beauties on BIG wild shiners today. We caught over 30 fish but no giants today but lots of quality fish between 2-4 lbs. Sharon caught her first bass today and loved every minute of it. These folks were a joy to be with and I am looking forward to seeing them again in April. The bite has been very good all morning so it makes for fast action and lots of photo ops.

Louie and his 2 sons Steve and Phil spent 2 amazing days with Okeechobee Fishing Guides/Shellen Guide Service. These guys came from Ohio to enjoy some time with there dad in the great outdoors. There was some rivalry going on by the 3 of them the whole trip so it made for a lot of laughs on my part. We had a great day and looking forward to tomorrow. These fish were caught on a live wild shiner along with 25- 30 other quality Lake Okeechobee bass.
