The BIG O – Okeechobee is BACK!

Today I went out with Matt Dodge from Orlando, Florida. Because of the resent success we have had, we decided to head up to the "Big O" Lake Okeechobee. With the recent tropical storm Fay the rains have raised the lake back up over 14 feet. You can access the grass areas again where the bass really like to feed.

Matt and I decided to throw flapping shads, it's like a rubber buzz bait. Simply just swimming it threw and across the top of the grass, it would cause explosions on the bait that would scare anyone that wasn't dead already. It was just incredible, by the end of the day we caught over 40 large-mouth bass up to 6 pounds.

What a great day, it is so good to see the lake back to it's old standards!
