Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing- Okeechobee Fishing Report 3/15/19
Danny Koon and his grandson came over from Ft. Myers area to come fishing with us again this year and Lake O didn’t let them down. We caught about 35 bass with this one being 6lbs. The fishing has been so good when the wind slows. The full moon is coming up next week so the fish should be moving up to spawn again. The lake levels are perfect right now we hope they keep the levels at about 12.5 ft above sea level. Crappie fishing will pick up as well as we get closer and closer to the full moon. The artificial bite has been hit and miss some days are good and the next day is tough! But overall the fishing has been great!

Don and Jim had another awesome day on the Big O today! Jim caught the first fish of the day and it was the biggest of the day weighing 8lbs. 2oz. Again today the wind was blowing 20mph so finding these fish was a blessing. Hope to continue to see these guys year after year. Come one down and enjoy the beautiful weather and phenomenal fishing.
Don and Jim Robinson caught some beauties today on the Big O. Fishing was definitely slower today since the wind is blowing 20-25 mph. But we managed to scrape up some nice fish on today’s 8hr trip. Don came last year and caught several nice fish then as well. This year he brought his brother to catch some Okeechobee Bass. We had a good start hopefully tom. we will get a biggun.
Dominic his wife Maria, and sister in law Emilia came down from the frigid weather in Ohio for some fun, sun and fishing in the Big O. They all caught fish and they even caught some bigguns! Maria caught this 6 lb 2oz. beauty and Dominic caught this 4 1/2 lb as well. They have now sworn to make this a yearly trip. Thanks for coming and look forward to seeing you next year.
Steve Wheeler and his buddy both from Pa. have been looking forward to coming to Okeechobee for 30 years. They finally made and fishing was phenomenal! They caught 42 bass in under 6hrs on 8 dozen wild shiners. These guys have 2 more days with us it sure will be tough to top today! As the weather heats up so will the fishing come on down and enjoy some time on Florida’s largest lake and the U.S’s 2nd largest lake. The fishing is awesome!
Art Wittern from Minnesota and his buddy from Iowa came down to escape the frigid weather and catch some Florida bucket lips. These guys spend a lot of time fishing together but this is the first time they have fished together in Florida. They both caught some really nice fish and a total of about 30 or so total. The fishing will continue to get better as we creep closer to the new and full moons.
