Strictly Artificial Bass Fishing
Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing out of Clewiston, Florida is taking off. A cold front moved in and dropped temperatures but that did not stop the bass from continuing to move in for their spawn. Strictly Artificial Bass Fishing can get tough but knowledge, patience, and experience can trump it all.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Steve and Taylor traveling from Florida to fish beautiful Lake Okeechobee out of Clewiston. They have been fishing with me for many years and are incredible bass fishing anglers.
They are strictly artificial bass fishing anglers and do not like to use live bait. There are higher rewards fishing for largemouth bass on artificial baits for them. Cold fronts can really affect the artificial bite but they managed to catch some monster fish.
We had a blast on the water on this trip. Several-quality bass we’re caught on Bass Assassin baits and Bovarney Swim Jigs. Swimbaits and flipping rigs were the most effective with the biggest bass in the boat weighing 7.5 pounds.
The season is starting to look incredible and I am looking forward to fishing with Steve and Taylor again in the future. Don’t miss out on your adventures in Florida this season.
