What to Expect
Lake Okeechobee is the most 'famous big bass lake' in the world and well-known for the quantity and quality of bass the lake produces. This reputation on Lake Okeechobee has continued for many years as producing the biggest and best large-mouth bass fishing in South and Central Florida. On Okeechobee the two primary ways to fish are with artificial lures or wild shiners. Bass fishing on the 'Big O' with wild shiners is the preferred bait for many anglers for trophy bass. It just happens that it’s the natural food that they feed on daily.
Wild Shiner fishing became very popular many years ago. It has become the increasingly popular choice because once you’ve experienced this style of fishing you’ll quickly recognized that its much more than just sitting and watching bobbers.
Many anglers prefer to fish with artificial lures as much as possible. When fishing Lake Okeechobee with artificial, you will have the choice of spinning, bait casting or fly fishing. Flipping and pitching on Okeechobee is always real popular, it’s always a great lake for topwater plugs due to its shallow depths. You can try any techniques you’re interested in learning about, just inform the provider. At your request, your guides will suggest what the best form of fishing would be at the time of your booking, but which ever option you choose is entirely up to you.
Ultimately, your overall experience is what matters and that’s why the guides service the entire 730 square miles of the lake. This experience is very important, because as you know the weather and the fish don’t always co-operate with your schedule, so it is important for anglers to be flexible.
