Big spawning bass is starting to move in, making for the perfect time to get out there and catch the fish of a lifetime. Hop on board with one of our local experts, and they will put you on the fish. Enjoy an Okeechobee spawning fishing charter next time you visit.
Now is the time that the bass begins to spawn. The weather is becoming just right, and the fish are moving into the shallow waters. Our local experts know where all the hot spots are. They will take you to the hot spots and get you on the fish when you adventure out with them. You just never know what will bite the line.
Captain Dave Lauer had the pleasure of fishing with Paul out of Belle Glade, FL. Paul was visiting South Florida and was looking to get into some Okeechobee largemouth bass. They adventured out of Slims Fish Camp on the Southeast corner of Lake Okeechobee.
Conditions were not the best for anglers, but the bass loved it. They bite long and hard the whole trip. Paul, unfortunately, came out during a cold front with the wind blowing on top of it. The bass was tight to cover and fed to keep warm.
Wild-caught live shiners were the most effective bait on this fishing trip. Paul reeled and boated in over 30 bass with the biggest up to 5 pounds. Most of the fish were in the 3-4 pound range. After running through the 5 dozen shiners, Paul switched to artificial baits. He caught bass on rattletrap and spinner baits and had several blow-ups on top water.
Shortly after this fantastic fishing trip, Captain Brian Brown adventure out of the Harney Pond Area. He had the pleasure of fishing with Tony and John traveling from Minnesota and Wisconsin. While they had a layover in Fort Myers, they wanted to explore Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing.
They adventured out for a 6-hour fishing trip. It was an insane fishing day. The first spot we pulled up to was stacked tight with some big bass. Tony and John caught some good numbers of fish with bass weighing 6 pounds, 2 5 pounders, and numbers of quality 2-3 pound fish.
Conditions were perfect for the bass to find the live bait. There was no wind, and it was foggy early in the morning. They ran out of bait rather quickly, but the timing was perfect as they also wanted to see some wildlife.
Lake Okeechobee is alive and well, with a number of birds flying and alligators swimming. These guys had a great time fishing on the Big O! They will be back for more of this awesome action in the near future.
The lake is looking great, and the fishing will be strong this season. Don’t miss out on your adventure next time you visit Florida. Get out on the water with your family or friends for a fishing trip worth remembering.
We look forward to seeing you on the water next time!
