I fished with Len Ciulla and his grandsons Nick & Alex today, the boys love bass fishing and we always have a great time together. It was very windy and rough again today, making anchoring and holding on our shiner spot difficult. Just like yesterday the fish bit hard in the rough water. As you can tell from the pictures the guys all caught big Bass today.

January 6th 2006 Report with Okeechobee Fishing Guides



January 6, 2006- I fished with 2 fishing pro’s today Tim Herndon and Morris Nix are from Marietta Ga. and both of them fish the Stren tournament trail as well as the BFL tour. Our day of fishing started with us running into some schooling fish at our very first stop. We caught about 20 fish from the school before they quit on us, Morris lost a giant fish at the boat, she got tangled in the anchor rope and broke off, I could tell he was very disappointed. We then made a few other stops that did not pan out for us, so we made a long run to a spot that has produced in the past. The moment our shiner hit the water the cork disappeared, and the action continued for about 45 minutes resulting in another 24 fish. Tim hooked a 7lb fish and landed it, it was hooked deeply and I was having difficulty removing it, at that same time Morris hooked another big fish, so I stuck Tim’s first big fish in the live well to net the fish Morris had on, it turned out to weigh 7lbs 10oz, in the meantime Tim had thrown another rod with a shiner into the same hole and instantly had another big fish on, it turned out to be the largest of the 3 fish, it weighed 8lbs 3oz. So here we are with 3 big spawning females in the boat at the same time, I told both guys this was the picture opportunity of a lifetime, and we took full advantage, photographing all 3 fish together before releasing all 3 unharmed to be caught again. It was one of my most memorable guide trips ever, and I was lucky enough to spend it with my 2 new friends.

January 5, 2006- I fished with a young couple from New Jersey, Alexandra & Charlie, are both college students. The wind blew about 25 mph today but we managed to do well in spite of it. We caught 19 fish in our 4 hour trip, with Alexandra catching a 7lb 12oz Okeechobee Giant. I never would have known she had not bass fished before, she fought and landed this big fish like a real pro! It was another great day on the Big “O”, the big bass barrage continues, I have never seen a run of big fish like we are experiencing this last several months.

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.

Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides: Big Bass Bonanza!

The big fish bite we have been experiencing for the last 3 weeks continues. I fished with 2 gentlemen from Maryland today & and has been the pattern we started in some running water.
We caught 12 fish in the first hour and then made several moves where we caught 5 or 6 fish at each stop. We then ran to another spot and as we passed this area I had been fishing previously we saw fish chasing bait, and then they came up in a school knocking shad out of the water. We stopped and anchored and proceeded to catch 34 fish from this area. Most of these fish were in the 2lb range with a couple near 3lbs. We were down to our last few wild shiners and they were huge baits, the first bait we put out set for about 5 minutes before a fish blew up on it , engulfing it, it turned out to be and 8lb 4oz bass, which was long and thin from already spawning out. The next wild shiner was bigger than the first one and did not set 5 minutes before another fish blew up on it, this fish turned out to be a 9lb 14oz giant that had also already spawned out. This was the largest bass of Bob’s life so needless to say he was quite thrilled.
