New Lake Okeechobee Bass & Crappie Rules

Freshwater anglers fishing in Lake Okeechobee are reminded that new size rules are now in effect for bass and crappie. Black or largemouth bass must now be a minimum size of 18 inches total length to be kept. There is still a 5-bass bag limit and only one larger than 22 inches may be kept.

Crappie, also called black crappie, speckled perch or specks, must now be a minimum of 10 inches in order to be kept. The 25-crappie bag limit has not changed.

For complete fishing regulations pick up a copy of Florida Fishing Regulations or tackle shops that sell fishing licenses. Information is also available online at MyFWC.com.
