Steve Ammons and his 2 sons Rhett and Riggs had the best day of their young lives bass fishing with Okeechobee Bass Fishing and Okeechobee Fishing Guides catching tons of BIG bass including Rhett’s 9 lb bucket lips. These boys hadn’t made it back to the dock before they were begging their dad to come back next year. What a joy it is for us to be able to play a part in kids love for the outdoors and fishing. Looking forward to seeing you boys next year thanks for coming!

20180316_173443 (1)Bill Gersh and his son had a great day with Okeechobee Fishing Guides catching a mess of bass including these 2 beauties you see in the photo. We have been having really good luck in the afternoon trips as well as the morning trips. The weather has been perfect and the wildlife is starting to prepare for Spring. We saw tons of big alligators, birds, and caught a few different species of fish that attack a shiner as well. Now is the time to book your trip for the upcoming Spring spawn. Join us and the lots of others who caught their personal best with Okeechobee Bass Fishing.

Mark Burton and his wife from Canada enjoyed a great day out with Okeechobee Fishing Guides Nathan Shellen and Okeechobee Bass Fishing. The weather was cold for me but they enjoyed getting out of -20 or lower temps. they have been getting in Toronto. We caught 32 bass including these 4 nice fish the biggest being 5 lb. 11 oz large mouth. The fishing has still been good considering how cold the water has gotten over the last few days.

This afternoon I took Nolan, Caleb and Jarred from New Hampshire out. The fish were chewing and we caught 43 bass and several nice fish including this 6 lb. 10 oz swamp donkey. These guys were thankful to be down here in the sunshine instead of back at home where today they got 14 inches of snow. They are going to come back and fish with me again Saturday afternoon as well and I am looking forward to it. They had told me there expectations were set high at 12 fish each and at least 1 over 7 lbs. and they all caught more than 12 and they each caught a nice fish. I guess they will have to come back to catch that 1 over 7. Thanks for coming guys!

This morning I took Eric Jansen and his son Evan from Dallas, TX. fishing. The morning started with a light breeze from the South East and clear skies and by 9 we had had been rained on slightly twice and up to 20 mph gusts from the North West. With all the change in the weather the fish still played along with both Evan and Eric landing fish over 5 lbs. and Eric’s weighing just under 7 lbs. I will have them again tomorrow and I am sure we will have a good time and catch fish although the temp. in the morning is supposed to be in the low 40’s. The fish are fat and full of eggs and they are eating like crazy. Give us a call to book your trip!

On this beautiful but frigid morning I had the pleasure of taking Steve Robinson and his wife Patricia from Louisiana out. The wind switched directions blowing the crystal clear water out of the marsh making the fishing tough. We only caught 11 today but 1 of them was this 8 lb. 4 oz. beast that is starting to row up. I really enjoyed hearing their story about meeting at 15 and getting married at 19 and still remain faithful to one another 46 years later. We will be going out again tom. so I will give you an update on how we did. We still have days open in April if you are looking to come down and catch that once in a lifetime Okeechobee Large Mouth.
