This is Captain Mark Shepard with your March 26th Lake Okeechobee fishing report.

Well folks, my first trip of the day was just a 4 hour trip. A very special trip! Taking out 2 kids…Luke 7 years-old, this young man…just amazing! Showing him a little bit of the spinning rod I know he had fishing experience. We went out there and he started whacking them! It was fantastic to watch these young men catching some fish. They both caught great numbers. Beautiful fish, all in artificial! They did a fantastic job, fishing heavy! It was just amazing, all these kids that I have the opportunity to take out, such a thrill to watch them catch some fish…incredible techniques. Big time fans! A lot of excitement for the adults. It was a good day, a short little trip.

This is Captain Mark Shepard, when you get a chance take a kid fishing.
