When it comes to bass fishing and doing it for as long as I have, you need a break. Before our bass fishing season started here on Lake Okeechobee, I took a nice break and got away from Florida. Artificial Big Bass Fishing commenced once I got back on the water out of Clewiston, Florida.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Charlie Reid. He loves to fish for largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee strictly with artificial baits.
Lake Okeechobee is preparing for one excellent season. Big bass are beginning to move in and Charlie knows all about this season as he is one of my great repeat clients. He has caught some big bass with me before but this trip was different.
Live bait is generally the best way to catch largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee this time of year. Charlie would never touch it though. He is well experience angler that knows what he enjoys.
Charlie caught his personal best largemouth bass weighing 8.5 pounds. This female was an absolute monster and beautiful fish. You can’t beat the action this time of year.
It was a wonderful day and a great way to start the season off. Our season here on Okeechobee is the best time to catch the fish of a lifetime like the one Charlie caught. Don’t miss out on your adventure next time visiting the state of Florida.
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 were caught on Bass Assassin baits and Bovarney Swim Jigs. Swim baits and flipping rigs were the most effective with the biggest bass in the boat weighing 7.5 pounds.
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.
Lake Okeechobee has been fishing incredibly lately. A Strong Morning Bass Fishing Bite can really help prove what the season is going to look like this year. Florida Fishing is a must experience when traveling here.
I had the pleasure of fishing with Steve and his son Tanner. They are customers of Captain Mark Rogers and wanted to explore Lake Okeechobee out of Clewiston on this trip. We love working as a team here at Bass Online and I was glad to show them an excellent time.
Steve has been fishing with us for a long time. The weather on Lake Okeechobee was beautiful on this trip. It was perfect for a great day on the water.
Steve and Tanner caught some big numbers with over 50 fish in the boat. They caught a lot of 3 pounders with the best fish weighing close to 5 pounds.
Early morning and throughout the later part of the morning was incredibly successful. The bite was strong right off the bat. Live bait remained the most effective technique to catching quality numbers.
The season is upon us and we do not want you to miss out on the action. Many great adventures will be encountered with a lot of big bass along with it. Let’s get you hooked up today!
This is Capt Mark Shepard with your Lake Okeechobee fishing report. Well folks I was out on the water with long time clients Greg and his buddy Richard. These guys been with me a long time been fishing many years with many great adventures. This is one of the very best and why I have a group of my clients that like to come down late spring early summer to do this light tackle. Most people think light tackle little schoolies, not catching nothing really big but having a lot of fun.
Adventure Starts Here
Well we had a lot of fun we came close to 100 head of fish on light tackle 10 to 15 pound test, throwing light plugs and top water. We caught one at 8 pounds another at 7 and some 5 pounders. We just absolutely crushed them, its a great opportunity to fish Okeechobee. Early summer is fantastic down here whole different experience fishing in the open water where you can find them with no obstructions. It’s just incredible this is Capt Mark Shepard keep that in mind.
