John and his sons Chris (12) and Baxter (10) came down from Virginia to fish with Okeechobee Bass Fishing. These guys boated over 35 bass with 5 being around 5lbs. the biggest being 5lbs. 6oz. The weather has been perfect for these fish to be eating and getting fat preparing for the upcoming spawn. The wind has been out of the east/south east so it is clearing up a bit which is helping the bite as well. The artificial bite has also begun to get better and better as well. I have been catching fish on a senko, speed worm, and the top water bite has been heating up as well. Looking forward to seeing these to boys grow up and catch a whole lot more BIG Okeechobee Bass!
Kristi and Tony Savage from TN. came down to see what all the rage is about with these Okeechobee Large mouth and they definitely didn’t disappoint. These guys caught 30 fish in under 4 hrs. on only 5 dozen Wild shiners. TN. is one of my favorite states in all of the U.S so we spent time talking about the mountains the fires and of course Dolly Wood. Tony spends a lot of time on the water he hasn’t however had a day where he caught so many bass in a day in hos life he said. Over all it was a wonderful day meeting these two and catching plenty of Okeechobee Large Mouth Bass.
These guys have made Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing a yearly tradition and what a tradition it has become! This year we caught 30+ bass with several nice fish. They come to fish with us all the way from Pa. They seem to always bite for these guys! These childhood friends crack jokes and ride each other all day long so it makes for an interesting morning/ afternoon with this crew. Love my job and making memories that you will never forget.

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.
Kelsey caught this 6 lb beauty on a live wild shiner using a Shimano Stradic Reel, G Loomis rod, Power pro line, she is also wearing Costa Del Mar sunglasses.

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.
