Lake Okeechobee Fishing Forecast – March 2024

Fishing on Okeechobee has been a mixed bag catching numbers and big bass and other days fishing has been slow needing steadier weather patterns for a consistent bite. The bass and crappie spawn will continue from March through April. Now is the time to plan your next day fishing on Lake Okeechobee. If you’re fishing for bass, successful lures are Senkos rigged weed less; top water lures like a Devils Horse or Pop-R worked slow and rattle-free clear colored Zara Spooks. For the crappie anglers, depending on your style, fishing with live-small minnows while anchored has been producing limits especially in the Harney Pond and Indian Prairie canals as well as the Kissimmee River while fishing at night and during the daylight hours. If you prefer to jig, some colors to consider – white; chartreuse; green; yellow (depending on water clarity) and orange. The jig head color will depend on water clarity, sunlight, and cloud cover. Areas to try range from spots on the Shoal and Monkey Box; Dupree Bar; around Dyess Ditch; Worm Cove to Tin House and some spots around 3rd-4th point and some spots on/around Kings Bar and Grassy. On the East Side, try around Hendry Creek and close to the J&S lock area. Hopefully this information will help you to have a better, more productive day fishing in the lake.
