Light Tackle Bass Fishing
Light Tackle Bass Fishing has been phenomenal this year on Lake Okeechobee. As the weather warms and the water drops, the better the fishing will be.
Today, I had the pleasure to fish with Dustin and John. John has retired from the Coast Guard and wanted to set the hook into numbers of bass.
Light tackle is taking over the lake and it has been a blast to catch the amount of fish on it. Throwing topwater and moving baits in open water have been crushing the largemouth.
Giants are still being caught on the Lake even though they are all spawned out. Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing can provide you with a dream fish this time of year.
John and Dustin were both great anglers. John caught his personal best today weighing 7 pounds 12 ounces.
We had a great time and I am looking forward to fishing with them again. The peacock bass is turning on to so come travel to South Florida and have a fishing adventure of your lifetime!
Don’t miss out on your adventure!!
