New Moon Bass Fishing
Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing is by far one of the best lakes to experience here in Florida. The abundance of wildlife and large quantities of largemouth bass make it a true outdoor adventure. New Moon Bass Fishing is the one time you can catch that fish of a lifetime!
I had the pleasure of fishing with a long time return client Chris and his buddy Brian. Brian has never been on Lake Okeechobee and he came on a great day to fish. We love introducing new people to this amazing place.
The weather conditions were perfect for bass fishing. We had beautiful weather with temperatures in the 80s. The sun was shining on this 6 hour fishing trip. This produced an action that I could not keep up with.
We caught so many fish I lost count. Bait could not go on the hooks faster. Chris and Brian caught 60 largemouth bass. Live shiners were the best fishing technique using 7 dozen on their trip. Their best bass weighed close to 6 pounds. A large majority of the other fish weighed from 3-4 pounds.
They came when we were experiencing a new moon phase. Bass generally feed up and are in transition during this time. You can experience action no matter what time of year you visit this amazing lake. There are so many bass to be caught. Okeechobee bass are hard pulling and exciting to catch.
We had a fantastic time on the water sharing a lot of laughs and smiles. You can’t beat these perfect days of fishing. Don’t miss out on your adventure when you are traveling to Florida. I am looking forward to fishing with these awesome guys again in the future.
