Incredible Bass Fishing Trip On Lake Okeechobee
Capt Mark Shepard here with your Lake Okeechobee fishing report. Well, folks, the last three days, I got to spend some time with long-time clients Dustin and Colin been with me for a long time; great guys. We hit the perfect storm, weather coming in, fronts coming in, everything was just right, and we smashed them. The third day was a bit slow, but we caught them up to 7 pounds and saw good numbers. The first two days were just off the charts, with huge numbers of fish over 5 pounds and nonstop action as fast as we could.
We were doing all live bait, and after we ran out of live bait, we did a little bit of artificial and caught some that way too. What an incredible three days, the weather came together with the moon phase, and everything was just right, and it was a slugfest. This is Capt Mark Shepard; all the best, everybody.
