Fall is approaching quickly and as the water cools the big female bass get an urge to move into the shallow water areas to feed heavily on shiners, shad and other baitfish. Shiner fishing is the key to catching large numbers of bass as well as giant Okeechobee trophy size bass! The water has risen 2 feet since hurricane Irma rolled thru and areas of the lake that have not been accessible in years are opening up offering trophy bass fishing to those with experience and expertise to seek out these legendary spots on Lake Okeechobee.       October, November and December offer some of the best weather and incredible bass fishing.

Okeechobee Fishing Guides


Yesterday and today I had clients from South Fl. and we had a great time fishing with the Baldubchi Family. Bryan, Cole, Conner, and “Papa” had fun catching 25-35 fish a day although the heat was a little unbearable after 10:30 am. We saw lots of alligators preparing for the upcoming gator season. The fishing has been great the BIG bass are still eating well and the weather has been playing along so far in the mornings.

July 26 2017 the air temperature was 88 degrees at 9am and the water temperature was 87 degrees, but obviously this big Bass did not care she ate a large shiner and ended up posing for this photo before she was released to be caught another day, the point of this story is you never know when one of Okeechobee's giant bass is going to eat your bait!  

March Fishing Report for Lake Okeechobee- 3/21/2017

      Long time client Earl Trotter caught another big Bass, he has caught a lot of them with us through the years. The next day he caught 81 Shellcrackers to top off a great couple days of catching! Bass, Blue Gill and Shell Crackers are all on the menu for March and April if you just love to catcyh fish now is the time to visit us and enjoy the catching. Many days we will start with shiner fishing just to see if we can put our clients on a big trophy sized Okeechobee Bass and then once that slows down we move on to catching panfish. Whether it's big blue gill or shell crackers it doesn't matter, these fish fight like crazy and are very tasty table fare! Kids and adults alike will enjoy just plain old catching fish!
