Check out this Lake Okeechobee Bass Fishing Update with our Local Experts and Travelers:
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!
