Lake Okeechobee South Side Bass Fishing Trip
This is Capt Mark Shepard with your Lake Okeechobee fishing report.
Well, folks over the last few weeks we have had a ton of fun on light tackle light line.
Doing a variety of different types of fishing from topwater to crankbaits plastic worms and a little bit of live bait.
Not doing a whole lotta live bait been mostly doing artificial having a great time out there on the water.
Some days the numbers have been really good and we had a few days that were a little tough but it’s still been overall very good fishing.
Today out on the water with a couple of folks from Pennsylvania we ended up getting an 8 pounder a 5 a 4 some really good quality fish.
We did a little live bait in the morning and then we finished up with soft plastics which was fantastic picking up numbers.
A lot of good opportunities out there this is Capt Mark Shepard all the best.
