Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing- Okeechobee Fishing Report 2/19/19
Matt Nora and his son came down to escape the snow and cold to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather and to catch some Okeechobee Swamp Donkeys and boy did they do just that! We caught nearly 60 again today with quite a few fish coming on artificial baits as we ran out of shiners. As you can tell from the photos these are lake fish being white, green, and clean looking. We had so many chances at GIANTS today bu they just wouldn’t eat the baits. They would chase them and blow up on them on the top drag the bobber down and then let it go. Overall it was a beautiful and awesome day on the lake. Water temps. are perfect and the fish are chewing!

Matt Landon his father and son came too. These guys had never caught more than a few fish per day but this day they would. We caught around 60 bass total with these fish being some of the biggest. The fish are in pre-spawn mode and are feeding and gorging themselves in preparation for the spawn on the next moon. Just look at the smiles on those faces! I get to take 3 generations of fishermen to enjoy something they love and enjoy together. What a blessing! If you haven’t booked your trip this season NOW is the time.
These guys were a class act an we had an awesome day! The weather was blue bird today but the fish played along as we caught nearly 40 bass with a few in the 4-5 lb range. I learned a few things today from the fellas as they have both been married nearly 50 years. The fish are moving up to spawn as you can see with the fat bellies on these fish. The fishing will continue to get better and better as the month progresses and we close in on the full moon. Come join us to catch that fish of a lifetime or just to enjoy a day on the water with friends or family.

The Marino family came down from New York to escape the cold and snow to come out with Okeechobee Fishing Guides Capt. Nate Shellen for some fun and fishing! Saddie (10) caught 8 bass with the one she is holding being her biggest, Tyler(11) caught 11 bass and he also caught the most for the day with the one he is holding being his biggest, Minh caught the BIGGEST Bass of the day being a little over 5 lbs. and Wayne caught the beauty he is holding as well. This family had a bet that whoever caught the biggest bass was going to get called not their name but “BASSMASTER” for the rest of the week. So no more “mommy” for Minh but “bassmaster” she will be for the rest of the week. I absolutely LOVE taking kids fishing and look forward to it each time I have kids on my schedule and these kids were no exception. Can’t wait to see them again next year!

Scott Deagle came all the way down from South Dakota to fish with his buddy and Okeechobee Fishing Guides (Capt. Nate Shellen) These guys have been staying down near Everglades City and doing quite a bit of snook fishing off the bank, so they enjoyed getting a day out on the water catching nearly 60 bass on Live wild shiners and artificial both. They are both seasoned fishermen casting baitcasters like they had been doing it all their lives. The fishing has been so much fun these last few weeks and will only continue to get better and better and spring approaches. The top water bite and swim bait bite will also heat up as the water temps do.
Delbert and Dave both caught a ton more fish today we lost count but it was still a blast! Today we did not catch as many BIG bass but we did catch one that was 6 1/2 lbs. The wind started picking up today which will make fishing for these fish a little tougher this coming week. With the water temps. perfect for these fish to eat the coming weeks should continue to bring good numbers of quality fish. This weekends tournament is guaranteed to bring some big bags.
