Hello, this is Captain Jason Young with your Lake Okeechobee fishing report August 22 2014,
Today I fished the North end of Lake Okeechobee, with Patrick and Taylor from the St Louis Missouri area. There's still a strong morning bite on the outside weed edges, we took full advantage of that till about (9:00am) nine o-clock this morning. Then we moved deeper in to the weeds with slower baits. Once that slow down on us, we decided to go and use some shiners for a little while, and the shiner bite was really strong today.
Caught a lot of good quality fish today and later in the afternoon probably around noon or a little after noon we went and decided to go flipping for a couple of hours. And why the flipping bite was a little slow, which is typical we did manage to get a few quality bites in the last little bit of the day as well. So, all in all it was a great day. Caught a lot of fish, a lot of good quality fish.
Our air temps were in the mid (90's) nineties but had a genital breeze to keep us comfortable and the water temps were floating right in the mid (80's) eighties.
Tell next time, this is Captain Jason Young. Wishing you tight lines!
