Okeechobee Fishing Report


Today I had the privilege of fishing with Pat Lavacca, his son Mark, and grandson Jason and BOY what a day it was! Pat landed one of the top 10 biggest fish of the year being 8 lb. 10 oz. 28 1/2 in Okeechobee Bucket Lips. They caught close to 50 fish and the bite just never stopped! The light winds have let the water clear up a little which has REALLY turned the fish on. We are even starting to see beds show up around the sporadic weeds. I am looking forward to the spring spawn and some more GIANTS being caught with Okeechobee Fishing Guides and Shellen Guide Service. Call us today to book your trip for the upcoming Spring spawn at 863-357-0892 or okeechobeebassfishing.com
