Okeechobee Fishing Guides

     Tom Howatt and his son Boyd enjoyed a special morning of catching big Bass on Lake Okeechobee, very large live wild shiners were the choice of bait and they were eating them!   Lake Okeechobee is yielding great numbers of bass to anglers right now whether using live wild shiners or artificial baits. Wild shiners are responsible for more big Bass than any other bait on Lake Okeechobee, although right now top water plugs, spinner baits, senko's and 10 inch worms are all accounting for large numbers of small bass. Speckled Perch or Crappie as our Northern friends call them are being caught in the heavy cover areas of the marsh by anglers using small jigs, various colors will work, so search until you find a color they will eat. Anglers using minnows are finding good numbers of fish as well, the Kissimmee River or local canals all have a healthy population of specks so try your hand at fishing the Big "O" today. Give us call we are here to make your fishing day the best you have ever had!

12/28/2016 Big Bass bite continues! Lake Okeechobee Fishing Reports

     Mark Hudson and his son Joshua visited Lake Okeechobee for the second time this year and Mark caught this Okeechobee Trophy Bass on a giant wild shiner! The heavy cover you see behind him is where these big old bass like to hold during pre-spawn, it requires heavy braided line, a lot of patience and a little luck to land a bass this size. Our years of experience on Lake Okeechobee has helped us guide our customers to so many of these giant bass that we have lost count. We are not done yet, come visit!  Okeechobee Fishing Report Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Okeechobee Bass Fishing Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report

12-18-2016 Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report- Late December and early January are traditionally the time of year when often the single largest bass of the year is caught. I am talking about fish in the 10 to 12 pound plus range, and these fish always fall prey to a live wild shiner. Lake Okeechobee has always been the premier bass fishing lake in the US and still is, there are many great fishing spots in this country but none can match the output of bass days after day that Okeechobee provide. It's cold up North, where would you rather be? If you are a fisherman your answer is probably in Florida sitting on Lake Okeechobee fishing for the biggest Bass of your lifetime. Lake Okeechobee is known for great speckled perch (crappie) fishing as well. We are catching 25 fish limits of these most tasty panfish daily. We normally fish with small jigs made locally by a friend of ours that is known to be irresistible to large specks. If you want to schedule a panfish trip give a call and we can either bass fish or speck fish, you make the call. 'Charles Rosens partner Cpt Jim had to return home lasty night so Charles had to catch all of the fish himself today. He had one of the best fishing days imaginable. He caught a 7 pound 2 oz bass, a 9 pound 1 oz bass, and a 10 pound bass. The 2 fish he is holding in the picture are the 9lb 1oz and the 10, he caught them on consecutive casts. What an incredible fishing day! Lake Okeechobee 12-18-11'

Okeechobee Fishing Report

Okeechobee Fishing Report 12-17-2016- Brian from Virginia visits Florida for the Winter and fishes with us 8 to 12 times a season, as you see he started his 2016 season off with a Big Bass caught on a wild shiner. He still has 4 more months with us to catch one bigger, don't bet against it! Lake Okeechobee is producing large numbers of bass every trip that is taken, with big Bass being caught at a rate not seen for quite a few years. Live wild shiners are the way to go if you are interested in catching the single biggest fish of your lifetime, not to mention the most bass in a morning of your life as well! We live in Okeechobee and our experience level and track record on the lake is unsurpassed. Our customers continue to call us to fish the Big "O" year after year, one because we have fun when we fish, and two we produce more big bass than any other guide on this lake, that's a combination that is hard to compete with. Thanks, Cpt Shellen
