Light Tackle Big Bass Fishing
It is that time of year when the water is getting low on Lake Okeechobee. Light Tackle Big Bass Fishing is in effect.
Today, I had the pleasure of fishing with a long-time friend, Charlie Reed.
Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing is at its finest with the bass schooling across the whole lake. The largemouth here is incredible and hard fighting due to the massive amount of travel time.
Lake Okeechobee Largemouth Bass are some of the hardest fighting bass in the world because of the amount of distance they must travel.
Charlie and I put them in the boat with our best 5 weighing over 25 pounds. We had multiple 5 and 6-pound bass. The action was amazing and
I know Charlie will be back for more.
It is also that time of year that the water warms across South Florida and the peacock bass is biting and fighting even harder than the largemouth. Travel further south and hook yourself into a fish of a lifetime with BassOnline.
