Check out this Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Update to see what you can catch here in March:
“The bass are everywhere right now and quite active. Some fish are moving off beds while others are preparing beds for this upcoming moon phase. It has been a lot of fun searching for and finding largemouth bass in all stages of the spawn.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Mike and Bob out of Clewiston, Florida. They were traveling from Maryland looking to get out on the water on Lake Okeechobee. There is no better way to soak up the Florida heat and enjoy the outdoors than on a Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Trip.
Mixing it up was a great experience for Mike and Bob. We threw topwater baits in the morning around the outside edges. After picking away at a few on artificial baits, they switched over to shiners. The outside edge along grass lines was the most effective spot to land fish. Bob caught the biggest fish weighing in at 3 pounds. They might not have caught a giant largemouth bass but had an absolute blast the whole trip.
Waves of bigger fish are going to start moving in on this next moon phase. Mike and Bob had a great time and I am looking forward to laughing and having fun again with them soon!” – Captain Mark Shepard
Fishing with Captain Mark Rose:
“One of my favorite parts about being a fishing guide is showing new people around that have never been on a particular body of water. I had the pleasure of fishing with Gunter and his good friend. They were traveling from Germany looking to explore Lake Okeechobee for the first time. Lake Okeechobee showed up for them providing a trip they won’t forget.
Sunny and breezy weather made for some great fishing conditions. While they enjoyed the weather, Gunter and his good friend caught largemouth bass all trip long. They landed over 15 bass on their fishing trip with the biggest fish weighing in at 6 pounds.
Quality largemouth bass like this one is what you travel to Lake Okeechobee for. You never truly know what is going to bite the end of your line. Wild-caught live shiners were the most effective method to put fish in the boat.
Fishing with Captain Brian Brown for Florida Speck or Crappie:
“During these cooler months of the year, crappie or speck is a fantastic species to come catch. Not only are they delicious but they are fun fish to catch on light tackle. Now is the time to plan those speck or crappie trips when visiting Florida.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Devon, Merrell, Aaron, and Earl. They were traveling from Indiana looking to spend some time here in Florida. While doing so, speck fishing was on the menu. It was an awesome and action-packed morning for this group of guys.
We met at Garrad’s Bait and Tackle in Okeechobee City, Florida. After that, we took a short ride to the boat ramp. It was not long after getting out on the water that we were on the fish. We caught two keeper speck on the first two drops and then after that, they kept catching them.
When it comes to Crappie or Speck fishing, the best methods to catch them are minnows and jigs. You can have a blast doing both when coming out on a fishing charter with us here at Bass Online. I personally love putting clients on this fish.
Devon, Merrell, Aaron, and Earl caught over 30 crappies on this fishing trip. They could not have been more excited about the outcome. I am looking forward to spending another day on the water with them again in the future!” – Captain Brian Brown
Fishing with Captain Rick Mitchell:
“Every year, anglers from across the United States make annual traditions to come to explore several of our lakes here in Florida. Lake Okeechobee is an annual hotspot for many travelers for not only its pure beauty but exceptional fishing opportunities almost all year round!
I had the pleasure of fishing with Chan, who was traveling from South Carolina. This year, he brought along a group of family and friends. We embarked on a two boat trip for 8 hours of fishing and lunch in between. The best location to enjoy a trip like this in Clewiston, FL as they have a marina on the water where you can get lunch.
Lake Okeechobee came alive on this fishing trip. We caught some big bass on wild-caught live shiners. Chan was amazed at the quality of fish he caught on this trip. The biggest bass caught weighed in at 7 pounds along with a 6 pound, several 5-pound, and 4-pound bass.
When it comes to Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing, it truly does not get any better than that. Calm and beautiful weather made for the perfect mix to stir up some incredible bass fishing.
I am looking forward to getting back out on the water with Chan again on his next annual fishing trip. They had an absolutely amazing experience on Lake Okeechobee they will never forget!” – Captain Rick Mitchell
The Last Report of this Update with Captain John Larsen:
“Large groups are always a fun time to experience a fishery with. Friends from across the globe come to Florida to enjoy what this state has to offer. Lake Okeechobee should be at the top of your list when it comes to getting outdoors here in Florida.
Joe and Caroline brought down a large group of people from Canada. They wanted to enjoy a day on the water catching Florida largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee. A total of 8 anglers were split between several boats.
All my fellow captains including myself had a blast catching over a dozen largemouth bass each. It was a quick 4-hour morning fish charter with some great action on both live and artificial baits. The main structure of focus was submerged eelgrass. Largemouth use the grass as an ambush point.
The most productive artificial baits on this fishing trip was a fluke in Copperfield color. When you slowly twitch the bait over the grass, the bass would come out of it and blow it up. It was an exciting bite for these anglers.
Now is the time to plan that Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing trip. This March Lake Okeechobee Fishing Update should have given you some insight into what is to come. Whether it is largemouth bass or crappie/speck, you can have a blast catching fish all trip long.

If you want the best chance to catch a trophy-sized fish, the upcoming months are the best time to come. Right now, we are experiencing wow factor artificial fishing that will keep you active all trip long.
Artificial bait fishing is a great way to catch big numbers of fish. As we are approaching the spawning season, which means the males are the first to show up. When this happens, you can have a blast putting fish after fish in the boat. A local expert is essential to having success on the water. Years of experience will allow you to get on the fish much faster.
Brad and his son Garrick were traveling from Indiana looking to cash in on some bass fishing here in Florida. They spent 3 days on the water throwing strictly artificial baits. Captain Mark Shepard had the pleasure of fishing with them out of Clewiston, FL. He got to show them the magic of wow factor artificial fishing with his Mark Shepard 2.0 Crankbaits.
The first day of fishing was all about dialing in on the action and bite. When you are throwing artificial baits, you have to make mistakes before putting fish in the boat. Getting your hook set down is essential as fish can easily get off when not properly hooked. You would not want to lose that big fish you are after!
Wow factor crankbaits, swim jigs, and soft-plastic worms were the best methods to landing several nice fish. After the first day was over, Brad and Garrick started to have some fun catching fish. They landed over 40 bass in two days of fishing with fish up to 4 pounds. The last day of fishing was left to live bait where they also had a blast catching bass.
Captain Mark noticed that most of the fish caught were clean males that are making their way to the shallow waters. This is a good sign for the upcoming months as the temperature begins to cool. Focus on cattail heads and submerged grass, which will be the best areas to land some beautiful fish.
Brad and Garrick had a fantastic time fishing on Lake Okeechobee. Captain Mark is looking forward to getting back out on the water with him again soon!
Just shortly after this fishing trip, Brian and his son Ethan were traveling to Lake Okeechobee to explore what it had to offer. Additionally, Brian and Ethan were traveling from Indiana looking to cash in on some beautiful largemouth bass. Captain Brian Brown had the pleasure of fishing with this father-son duo out of Okeechobee City, FL.
The early morning hours called for artificial baits. After several hours of fishing them, live bait came out during the midmorning hours. Brian and Ethan did have several bites on artificial baits but the best bite came on live bait. They caught right around 15 largemouth bass in their quick 4-hour fishing trip. No big fish made it to the boat but everyone had a blast catching fish.
Brian and Ethan had a great time catching the quality of fish they did. Sunny and breezy weather kept things cool. Captain Brian is looking forward to getting them back out on the water again in the near future!
