Okeechobee Fishing Guides

     Tom Howatt and his son Boyd enjoyed a special morning of catching big Bass on Lake Okeechobee, very large live wild shiners were the choice of bait and they were eating them!   Lake Okeechobee is yielding great numbers of bass to anglers right now whether using live wild shiners or artificial baits. Wild shiners are responsible for more big Bass than any other bait on Lake Okeechobee, although right now top water plugs, spinner baits, senko's and 10 inch worms are all accounting for large numbers of small bass. Speckled Perch or Crappie as our Northern friends call them are being caught in the heavy cover areas of the marsh by anglers using small jigs, various colors will work, so search until you find a color they will eat. Anglers using minnows are finding good numbers of fish as well, the Kissimmee River or local canals all have a healthy population of specks so try your hand at fishing the Big "O" today.
