The summer weather is upon us, the morning bite is so important this time of the year. The shoal, Kings Bar, Horse Island and surrounding areas are great areas for the shad spawn therefore these are the areas where the fish will congregate in the morning hours to feed on the shad fry. Once the sun comes up fish can still be found in deeper areas and some schooling fish can be found for those who are willing to hunt for them. These fish can be caught on shallow running crank baits, chatter baits, spinner baits, and rattle trap type baits. The deeper areas of the lake such as the canals and the Kissimmee River will produce fish as well on crank baits, shaky head and carolina rig. The shiner fishing is still good as well we have been catching some big fish in some of the deeper areas of the lake with large wild shiners. Summer time is often the best time of the year to feel like you have this 750 square mile lake to your self because there are a lot less people down from up north down here. Come on down and enjoy some time on the water catching fish with Okeechobee Fishing Guides! Call today to book your trip ASAP 863-357-0892

Ron Schoner and his son came down from Ohio for the second year in a row to fish with Okeechobee Bass Fishing Guides. These guys love fishing and giving each other a hard time. Ron is 77 years old and has a little trouble getting around but he managed to catch these big girls the biggest weighing 7lb. 11oz. and 6lb 7oz. We caught several nice fish in the early morning on artificial baits. But these bigguns came off live wild shiners. Come on down and book your trip for some fun and fishing today!

Gail and her son John came down to Okeechobee to spend some time together while John is on break from college to enjoy some time together and some awesome fishing. The artificial bite has been great catching fish on swim jig, spinner bait, swim baits such as big e-z and skinny dipper as well. The morning bite is phenomenal but its ends just as quickly as it starts. I have been catching quite a few fish in the deeper water after the sun has come up. Come on down for some awesome Okeechobee fishing and some beautiful weather as well. The bluegill bite has been really good as well in the canals and in the lake if you can find the spawning areas. Crickets, worms, and grass shrimp have been working best.

The sun is out and fishing is good! As the Lake level drops the fish are and will continue to stack up in the deeper areas of the lake. Rattle traps, Carolina rigs, shaky heads, various crank baits etc. will catch fish as these fish move into these areas. The morning and evening bites are the best and it makes it easier on fishermen as they escape the hottest part of the day. The bluegill bite has been really good as well best around the full moons on crickets, worms, and grass shrimp under a cork. Catching a limit of slabs should be pretty easy this time of year.

Sung Kang and hi son enjoyed an awesome day on The Lake O catching 25-30 bass with  of them over 5 lbs. The fish pictured weigh 7 lb. 9oz, 6 lb. 10 oz, and 2 right at 5 1/2 lbs. The fishing has been awesome this month so come and join us for some awesome fishing and some beautiful weather and LOTS of gators too. The weather has a big effect on the fish right now the overcast days have provided better fishing once the sun comes up. The morning bite is very important right now because thats when the fish have been most active. Graduation is coming for lots of High school students and college students so come on down for some relaxation and fishing!

Johnathan Hammett and his son came down to catch some bucket lip bass and some time together. These guys caught a ton of fish including these beauties caught on both artificial and live wild shiners. We saw some fish chasing shad so we caught some on top water and spinner baits first thing in the morning. Once the sun came up we caught fish on shiners one after another for the first hour with the biggest fish coming on shiners.
