Okeechobee Fishing Report

I fished with Steve & Minga Lawrence today, both very avid fishermen. We fished for 4 hours and caught 37 bass, the largest being 6lbs 14oz. Once again all of our fish were caught on Live Wild Shiners, the bait of choice for Okeechobee Largemouth.

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides: First Cold Front of the Year!

This morning we were greeted by the first cold front of the year, the water temps in the lake dropped about 6 degrees overnight. My Trip today was with Bill & John Tribbett, Bill and I go back many years and it was a pleasure to fish with he and his son. The drop in temperature had an adverse affect on the fish slowing the bite somewhat, we managed to catch 37 fish, with a big fish for the day of 6lbs 2oz, which was Johns biggest bass ever. Once the sun got up it was pleasant but very windy, all in all another day in paradise!

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides: Ryan Newman, Nascar Race Team Fishes Okeechobee

Today was the annual Ryan Newman Racing Team Shiner tournament. After racing at Homestead on Sunday and the close of the Nascar season, Ryan and his entire team came for a day of fishing. There were 40 some team members all trying to catch the biggest 3 fish limit of bass. This year I had the pleasure of fishing with 2 members of Ryans pit crew, June-Bug Moody & Chris Brewer. Both of these guys are excellent fishermen and it was evident they spend a lot of time on the water right from the start. After leaving Okeechobee Fishing Headquarters and launching our boats at Okeetantie park we proceeded directly to a spot I have been fishing for a few days. Today was not a disappointment. Each of the competing teams had 10 dozen shiners to use, we went through our shiners in about 4 hours catching seventy fish. We never got a really big fish today, but we did manage to Win The Tournament! with our 21lbs of Okeechobee Bass, we had 6 fish over six lbs today and 1 just over 7lbs, our 3 biggest fish won the event much to our surprise! There were several huge fish caught by other teams 3 8lb fish, 1 10lb fish, but none of the other teams could match our catch of 21 lbs.

Every one that fished had a great time, after the tournament the local Ranger dealer Ellis Cole fed us a great barbecue, & then presented the trophys. A great and fun time!

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides: Texans visit the Big “O”

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides

Today was spent with Doug Gresham & his wife Laura, who hail from Texas. Doug & his wife have been working the hurricane damage from New Orleans to Florida. They are both Insurance adjustors. We had a good day on the Lake today catching 45 bass in our 4 hours of fishing. Doug did suffer some heartbreak however, he hooked and fought beautifully a massive bass for several minutes, only to have the hook pull from the jaw of this big fish at the last possible second, 10 feet from the boat to be exact. His wife became very adept at hooking, and landing, fish after fish. All in all we had a great time, I am sure Doug And his wife will return to fish Lake Okeechobee again.
