Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report: 1/10/2017 Catching Bass is family fun!

   The Gutch family had a great day of catching, competition between the two boats was fierce and the smack talk was flying back and forth all day! Live wild shiners are the meal ticket for Okeechobee's Trophy Bass! They were grateful for their Okeechobee Fishing Guides putting them on the BIG fish and will be back to fish again.

Cold Weather, Giant Bass on shiners

           39 degrees in Okeechobee this morning, the water is still warm however, which didn't stop this big Bass from eating a live wild shiner. Final day of 2016, and it looks like 2017 is going to be a great year for catching Big Bass! The Lake Okeechobee Fishery is in incredible shape right now, the massive lake is churning out large numbers of bass, plus big bass every single day!  Okeechobee Fishing Report Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Okeechobee Bass Fishing Lake Okeechobee Fishing Guides

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. 'Charles Rosens partner Cpt Jim had to return home lasty night so Charles had to catch all of the fish himself today. He had one of the best fishing days imaginable. He caught a 7 pound 2 oz bass, a 9 pound 1 oz bass, and a 10 pound bass. The 2 fish he is holding in the picture are the 9lb 1oz and the 10, he caught them on consecutive casts. What an incredible fishing day! Lake Okeechobee 12-18-11'

Day 5 with the Efird boys, we had a great week together catching bass and talking trash to one another. We caught a couple of big Bass today and had big numbers too. For the five days we fished together we caught over 200 Bass. My job is made very easy when I get to fish with wonderful people like the Efirds. Okeechobee Fishing Guides are the best in the business!

I fished with Brad Roark and his father today. The Roarks are from Swayzee, so we had a lot to talk about. Seems we knew all of the same people, so we had a great day of catching bass and catching up on home state news. It was a terrific day with great people.

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.
