Learning New Fishing Techniques
Learning New Fishing Techniques is very important when coming to Lake Okeechobee. You must be able to learn new and improved techniques to catch the quality of largemouth bass you are looking for traveling to the Lake.
I had the pleasure to fish with Bryant and Brook a couple that is young and new to fishing Lake Okeechobee. Bryant is used to fishing with a Zebco fishing reel and we wanted to teach him how to throw a bait caster.
Brook was very happy with throwing a spinning reel and rod. As Bryant was getting the hang of fishing this new technique, Brook was putting them in the boat. Bryant caught up with her and they had a great time learning something new.
The numbers are up on the lake and the bass are biting artificial baits on light tackle. They caught over 30 largemouth bass with most in the 3 to 4-pound range.
Summertime is a very exciting time of year for fishing especially as the bass continues to school and move around the lake. Light tackle is dominating and we are catching them up. I am looking forward to fishing with this great couple again.
Do not miss out on your adventure!
