Alan, Jim and Mark from Kentucky enjoyed putting a hurting on 57 bass in under 6 hours. The day was perfect and fishing was fantastic. We even had a few close calls with seagulls as they swooped down to pick up the dead shiners and getting caught in the fishing line. These guys enjoyed the warm weather after a frigid winter for all the northerners this year. They were already talking about making this a yearly fishing trip with the 3 of them. If you haven’t booked your trip for this coming Spring. Book your trip NOW!

Today I had the Arlington’s they have been with me a couple of times now but today was FANTASTIC! They caught between 30-40 bass with the biggest being 6lbs 7oz. The weather was beautiful with a nice breeze, not to hot not to cold. We got several nice fish with a few being over 4 lbs. and a ton of males waiting on the females moving up to spawn. Each day has been different with the wind direction never making up it’s mind coming from a different direction each day. The fish are fattening up and each day has been so fun watching people catch more fish in a day than they have ever caught in their life.  Come join us and catch the fish of a life time with Okeechobee Bass Fishing!

Today I had the privilege of fishing with Pat Lavacca, his son Mark, and grandson Jason and BOY what a day it was! Pat landed one of the top 10 biggest fish of the year being 8 lb. 10 oz. 28 1/2 in Okeechobee Bucket Lips. They caught close to 50 fish and the bite just never stopped! The light winds have let the water clear up a little which has REALLY turned the fish on. We are even starting to see beds show up around the sporadic weeds. I am looking forward to the spring spawn and some more GIANTS being caught with Okeechobee Fishing Guides and Shellen Guide Service. Call us today to book your trip for the upcoming Spring spawn at 863-357-0892 or okeechobeebassfishing.com

Today I fished with Tito Vazquez, his son and son’s buddy. We caught a bunch of fish and a few nice ones too. The water temp. is on the rise the full moon just passed and the fish are eating everything! These guys were a lot of fun to fish with and I KNOW they will be back. I love to see the faces of young fishermen when they get a hold of BIG fish and that fish comes to the top and shakes it’s head.

Gracyn and Tim Watson were my clients today and what a great day we had. Gracyn started the day off quickly by landing close to a dozen bass before his dad even had his first bite. Gracyn has had this dream of fishing Lake Okeechobee for a few years and his dad made it happen for his Christmas present. Day 1 we caught about 35-40 bass with a few decent 3-4 pounders. The spawn is on but the cold weather is coming quick.
