Okeechobee Fishing Guides- Okeechobee Fishing Report 1/3/19
Brent Shaffner and his son Mason had an absolutely amazingly awesome day fishing with Okeechobee Bass Fishing and Okeechobee Fishing Guides today, catching this 10lb. 1oz. swamp donkey. Mason his son caught this Giant as well!
The fish are moving up on beds so these Giant fish hopefully will stick around for a while an let me get some more catch and release photos before they decide to move back out. This is the first 10 pound plus bass of 2109 and we are only 3 days in. There will be many more caught this year since the fishing is phenomenal I am counting on it to be very soon. Why not YOU? Come on down and check out beautiful Lake Okeechobee and OkeechobeeBassFishing.com
Dave and his son Dave Jr. from Nebraska came to enjoy some time together out on Lake O. The morning started cold with temps. in the low 40’s and water temps in the mid 50’s. The fish however played along these guys caught 40 fish with 1 fish weighing 7lbs 7oz. in only 6 hrs. Now that the water temps have dropped some the fishing has been really good! If you are planning a trip down to Florida this winter now is the time to book your trip with Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing and Shellen Guide Service.
Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report
12-18-2016 Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report- Late December and early January are traditionally the time of year when often the single largest bass of the year is caught. I am talking about fish in the 10 to 12 pound plus range, and these fish always fall prey to a live wild shiner. Lake Okeechobee has always been the premier bass fishing lake in the US and still is, there are many great fishing spots in this country but none can match the output of bass days after day that Okeechobee provide. It's cold up North, where would you rather be? If you are a fisherman your answer is probably in Florida sitting on Lake Okeechobee fishing for the biggest Bass of your lifetime. Lake Okeechobee is known for great speckled perch (crappie) fishing as well. We are catching 25 fish limits of these most tasty panfish daily. We normally fish with small jigs made locally by a friend of ours that is known to be irresistible to large specks. If you want to schedule a panfish trip give a call and we can either bass fish or speck fish, you make the call.
