South Bay Fishing Trip on Lake Okeechobee in Florida

South Bay Fishing Trip

Lake Okeechobee is starting to really pick up. As the weather continues to get better, so will the bite. A South Bay Fishing Trip is all you need when adventure to South Florida.

I had the pleasure of fishing with repeat clients of mine, Kathleen and John. They are traveling from Staten Island, New York to catch bass here in Florida as well as visit family. We went out for a 6 hour out of South Bay on the south end of Lake Okeechobee.

Conditions are clearing up on the lake and the sun finally broke through after three days of no sun. Wild caught shiners were the most effective method on this trip. They also fished artificial baits toward the end of the trip.

On this trip, the bite was most certainly off but we still managed to catch several largemouth bass weighing up to 3 pounds. Most of the bass were caught on shiners but we also snagged a few on stick baits. They were mostly males and did miss a couple of big fish so new fish are still in the process of moving in.

We had a blast on the water and I am looking forward to fishing with them again in the future. Don’t miss out on the action next time visiting Florida!

For most of my life fishing has been a passion. Over the years I have fished bass tournaments across Pennsylvania and on lakes and rivers up and down the East Coast. I have participated in B.A.S.S., FLW Stren Series, Walmart BFL’s and ABA tournaments along with finishing 2nd in the 2012 Keystone Bass Classic on Lake Erie, to name a few.
