Okeechobee Fishing Guides- Okeechobee Fishing Report 1/3/19
Brent Shaffner and his son Mason had an absolutely amazingly awesome day fishing with Okeechobee Bass Fishing and Okeechobee Fishing Guides today, catching this 10lb. 1oz. swamp donkey. Mason his son caught this Giant as well!
The fish are moving up on beds so these Giant fish hopefully will stick around for a while an let me get some more catch and release photos before they decide to move back out. This is the first 10 pound plus bass of 2109 and we are only 3 days in. There will be many more caught this year since the fishing is phenomenal I am counting on it to be very soon. Why not YOU? Come on down and check out beautiful Lake Okeechobee and OkeechobeeBassFishing.com
Jason Metcalf and Cat Mitchell had an amazing day on Big Lake O catching nearly 40 bass with several nice fish to go with them. They came all the way from Kentucky to enjoy some fun, sun. and Big Okeechobee Bass! The fish are eating like crazy, chasing and crushing these shiners one after another this morning. I love my job and I love my clients! Thanks for coming and thanks for another phenomenal day on Lake Okeechobee.
Jason caught this 6lb 2oz Okeehcobee Bass fishing with Okeechobee Fishing Guides!
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.

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.
