Live Bait Top Water Explosions
Lake Okeechobee can provide you with special Florida fishing adventures that could last a lifetime. Bass Fishing on the lake has been exceptional this time of year with many live bait topwater explosions.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Asa traveling from California and Bugs traveling from Indiana. I have not fished with these gentlemen in quite some time.
It has been almost three years since they were on my boat which makes this trip very special for me.
We went out on a quick half-day due to the summer heat. It was an awesome time with a lot of laughs.
Free-lining wild caught shiners produced an incredible bite. Topwater explosions from the live bait consumed most of the trip.
Asa and Bugs loved the fact that the bass was knocking the wild shiners right out of the water. The action was jammed-packed but still got slow at some points. They caught over 20 bass weighing up to 6 pounds.
We were able to enjoy the trip with some great snacks and drinks. The weather was warm and is not getting any cooler anytime soon.
If you are fishing anytime soon, please be sure to be ready for the summer heat. As well, I look forward to fishing with these gentlemen again.
