Birthday Florida Fishing Trip
A Birthday Florida Fishing Trip is a great way to spend some time with your family. Lake Okeechobee is heating up producing great fishing despite changing conditions. Don’t miss out next time visiting Florida.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Matt and Sandra traveling from Sarasota, Florida. Her father Bob was traveling from Colorado and it was his birthday fishing trip.
Weather is highly unpredictable in Florida which is what makes the state so unique. For most of your fishing trips, you will experience beautiful days but there is a chance it catches up to you. We experienced extreme winds on this fishing trip up to 30 mph.
Even though we had some rough conditions, we managed to catch over 20 solid largemouth bass. The biggest bass weighed 4.75 pounds. Wild-caught shiners were the most effective method and the bite was strong.
Come on down to Florida these winter months and catch the quality you are looking for. I am looking forward to fishing with these amazing people again!

For most of my life fishing has been a passion. Over the years I have fished bass tournaments across Pennsylvania and on lakes and rivers up and down the East Coast. I have participated in B.A.S.S., FLW Stren Series, Walmart BFL’s and ABA tournaments along with finishing 2nd in the 2012 Keystone Bass Classic on Lake Erie, to name a few.
