The fish are on the move, as the shallow water is hot, creating summer patterns for this one of a kind lake. The fishing throughout the summer can sometimes be tough on Lake Okeechobee, but also can be the best bass fishing. The Largemouth bass are schooling, so it’s all about the bait as the bait moves in shore you can find very fast and crazy feeding frenzy’s. The Largemouth Bass will herd bait like cowboys and when you find these fish you are in for a treat. Best way to can fish them is top water, crank baits, plastics and swim baits.

Over the last few weeks I sure enjoyed the different adventures with everybody this time of year can be a different adventure every day. When you see the bait jumping out of the water trying to get away from the number 1 game fish you see why sport fishing for Largemouth Bass on Lake Okeechobee is one of the most sought after fishery in the world.

I hope to see yea Capt. Mark Shepard
