These guys were a class act an we had an awesome day! The weather was blue bird today but the fish played along as we caught nearly 40 bass with a few in the 4-5 lb range. I learned a few things today from the fellas as they have both been married nearly 50 years. The fish are moving up to spawn as you can see with the fat bellies on these fish. The fishing will continue to get better and better as the month progresses and we close in on the full moon. Come join us to catch that fish of a lifetime or just to enjoy a day on the water with friends or family.
Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing- Okeechobee Fishing Report 2/12/19
The Marino family came down from New York to escape the cold and snow to come out with Okeechobee Fishing Guides Capt. Nate Shellen for some fun and fishing! Saddie (10) caught 8 bass with the one she is holding being her biggest, Tyler(11) caught 11 bass and he also caught the most for the day with the one he is holding being his biggest, Minh caught the BIGGEST Bass of the day being a little over 5 lbs. and Wayne caught the beauty he is holding as well. This family had a bet that whoever caught the biggest bass was going to get called not their name but “BASSMASTER” for the rest of the week. So no more “mommy” for Minh but “bassmaster” she will be for the rest of the week. I absolutely LOVE taking kids fishing and look forward to it each time I have kids on my schedule and these kids were no exception. Can’t wait to see them again next year!

Scott Deagle came all the way down from South Dakota to fish with his buddy and Okeechobee Fishing Guides (Capt. Nate Shellen) These guys have been staying down near Everglades City and doing quite a bit of snook fishing off the bank, so they enjoyed getting a day out on the water catching nearly 60 bass on Live wild shiners and artificial both. They are both seasoned fishermen casting baitcasters like they had been doing it all their lives. The fishing has been so much fun these last few weeks and will only continue to get better and better and spring approaches. The top water bite and swim bait bite will also heat up as the water temps do.
Delbert and Dave both caught a ton more fish today we lost count but it was still a blast! Today we did not catch as many BIG bass but we did catch one that was 6 1/2 lbs. The wind started picking up today which will make fishing for these fish a little tougher this coming week. With the water temps. perfect for these fish to eat the coming weeks should continue to bring good numbers of quality fish. This weekends tournament is guaranteed to bring some big bags.
Delbert is a long time and frequent customer and today he brought his buddy Dave from Alaska. These guys caught 50 or so bass with 10 fish over 5lbs and 20 fish over 4lbs. The fish are in full on spawning mode and they are eating like crazy! The fishing ought to continue to get better and better throughout the Spring. These guys are booked for another trip tom. Hopefully we can pull out some Okeechobee Bucket Lips. Okeechobee Fishing Guides will work hard each and every trip to catch you the biggest and most fish.

Harrison Edwards and his brother both caught several really nice fish today fishing artificial lures in the cattails and dollar pads today. The fog hung around until about 11am letting very little light through the clouds which made the bite today hang on longer than normal. We caught these fish on a couple different swim baits and some top water frog action as well. We were having so much fun catching them that we let a few go that we should have gotten pictures of but didn’t. We had a few fish come up on the swim baits and blow up on it or wake behind it and never hit it as well. The bite is going to continue to get better and better as long as we can keep some clean water and low winds. I am SO looking forward to the next couple of weeks as some of the bigger fish move up in waves. Got a feeling I will be seeing more of these young men after what they saw and experienced on the lake today. Want to book a trip come on down and join us this Spring!
