Lake Okeechobee Fishing Wilkinson’s Party

Great day on like with Jerry, Sherry and daughter Jackie from Brazil, Indiana. The Big O is the largest freshwater lake in the state of Florida . We were fishing the southeast side Lake in edge habitats, such as when vegetation ends or changes types. Bass inhabit these areas as a way to better ambush prey while hiding in the shadows. The fishing is best early in the morning on the outside edges of the shoreline vegetation (mainly bulrush, eelgrass, and knotgrass) and days get warmer, look for deeper, shady spots on the rim canal. Try topwater plugs, crank baits (shad designs and colors), and spinner baits in the grass flats, and plastic worms, senkos, flukes, and flipping jigs in the heavier cover. Golden shiners are the best live bait for largemouth bass.

Till next time tight lines and good fishing.
